Apple takes big bite out of Battersea Power Station scheme

Apple has announced that it will lease 500,000 square foot of office space at the new Battersea Power Station redevelopment – about 40% of the entire development.

The IT giant is planning to site its London campus on six floors at the station’s central Boiler House, and some 1,400 employees will decant from existing offices around London to populate it.

Rob Tincknell, the chief executive of Battersea Power Station Development Company, said Apple’s lease was "testament to our fantastic building and the wider regeneration of the 42-acre site".

He added: "It’s always been our clear objective to create one of London’s most thriving new communities and this commitment from Apple will undoubtedly help us achieve our goal."

Sadiq Khan, mayor of London, said: "I am delighted that Apple is moving into Battersea Power Station‎, helping to generate new jobs and economic prosperity for Londoners. It’s a further sign that London is open to the biggest brands in the world and the leading city for trade and investment."

Apple is due to move in 2021.

It was announced in 2014 that Skanska would be the contractor at the redevelopment.
