Battersea Power Station has added 40,000 sq ft of extra office space at the heart of the building.

An additional 40,000 sq ft of space has been made available alongside the 500,000 sq ft of office space in the grade II-listed building, which was pre-let last year to Apple.

The space on top of the boiler house had previously been planned as a hotel but will now be converted to offices or a private members club. Before Battersea Power Station was decommissioned, the space was the building’s engine room and consequently played a key part in the running of the Power Station.

Designed by WilkinsonEyre, the space will be set over two floors overlooking the central atrium and can accommodate around extra 500 workers.

Andrew Hilston, head of office leasing at Battersea Power Station Development Company, said: “This is a great chance for a single business, co-working provider or business members club to occupy the remaining office space in the Power Station. This is also a unique opportunity to become part of our new community based in an iconic building, which provides an unrivalled address.”

Across the wider Battersea Power Station development, there is at least a further 750,000 sq ft of office space to come.

Battersea Power Station is one of the few riverfront Zone 1 campus sites where occupiers can design a building in partnership with the developer to meet bespoke requirements. It is set to become a new home for the creative industries.
