KUALA LUMPUR: Battersea Power Station Development Company (BPSDC) today launched London’s latest retail and leisure destination that will house a collection of British and international brands in one of the world’s most iconic buildings.
In a statement, the company said Turbine Hall A, built in the 1930s, would be home to the premium collection – brands that portray elegance, sophistication and timeless style – while Turbine Hall B, completed in the 1950s, would bring together contemporary brands providing an eclectic mix of younger and more diverse names.
When completed, Battersea Power Station will be the third largest retail destination in central London.
BPSDC said millions of people would visit the power station once it reopened in 2020.
Deputy CEO and CFO Simon Murphy said the retail offering would form a key part of the new London destination.
“On behalf of our Malaysian shareholders, we look forward to fully opening this iconic building to the public for the first time, to be enjoyed for generations to come.”
Battersea Power Station is owned by a consortium of Malaysian investors comprising Sime Darby Property Bhd, SP Setia Bhd and the Employees Provident Fund.
Management of the development is undertaken by the UK-based BPSDC.
