• The vast structure – the largest brick building in Europe – will include 2m sqft. of new space designed by architects WilkinsonEyre and also includes 253 new homes.
• To the north of the Power Station will be a six-acre public riverside park, and to the south will be a piazza style town square designed by BIG – Bjarke Ingels Group – known as Malaysia Square, which links to the Electric Boulevard and the new London Underground station located at the development.
• The Power Station’s incredible rebirth will see 42 acres of Central London riverside land transformed into one of the most exciting and innovative mixed-use neighbourhoods, including 3m sqft. of commercial space of which 1.25m sqft. is office space together with 4,353 new homes, which includes over 600 affordable homes.
