I was looking through the photos I have taken and saved and I found this one. For months I used to walk past Battersea Power Station and see enormous cranes working on it’s renovation and a site teaming with construction workers and machinery.
You may know that these gigantic power stations which are no longer in use hold out a lot of potential but also some challengers to potential developers. The Tate Modern Art Gallery on the Southbank used to be a power station.
This is a photo from Wikipedia showing what the Battersea Power Station used to look like:
And this gives you an idea of the architectural plans for the site – which should house offices and apartments. They are clearly hoping the place will have a buzz because as well as shops and restaurants, they even extended part of the London Underground Northern Line to run to Nine Elms and Battersea Power Station.
