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.
One thought on “Saturday Snaps”
We’ve been watching the work on the Battersea Power Station over the past few years, but we have not seen it for around six months. It would be nice to see it all finished.
