Battersea Power Station: proposed redevelopment plans by Real Estate Opportunities

More than £1.8 billion worth of homes have been sold at Battersea Power Station since they went on the market in January last year, the Standard has learned.

The total — equivalent to almost a quarter of the cost of the entire scheme — was boosted by a fresh wave of buying during a glitzy “world tour” of the plans for the development.

Sting and his wife Trudie Styler are among those who snapped up apartments in or close to the Grade II* listed riverside building that famously featured on the cover of the Pink Floyd album Animals.

 Flats in the Lord Foster and Frank Gehry-designed third phase of the Malaysian-backed scheme were put up for sale during the road show in early November.
The tour included exhibitions and receptions in Paris, New York, Shanghai, Singapore, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Tokyo, Beijing, Doha and Milan and was also aimed at persuading office tenants, restaurateurs and retailers to take space.

 

As well as the former Police front man, the events were attended by Hollywood actress Kate Beckinsale, Mad Men star Jared Harris and DJ Leslie Kirchhoff.
