Battersea Power Station reconstruction 2020

Battersea Power Station under reconstruction in 2020.

Battersea Power Station is a historic Grade II*-listed structure in London that is under reconstruction to serve as Apple's future UK headquarters.

History[]

In 2016, Apple announced it plans to open a new UK headquarters at Battersea Power Station in London, which is in the process of being refurbished by WilkinsonEyre. Apple intends to occupy all 6 floors of office space, containing about 500,000 square feet (46450 m2) of room for 1,400 employees.[1][2][3]

Contingency for delays[]

In 2019, Apple leased over 100,000 square feet (9,290 m2) at 22 Bishopsgate to consolidate its London staff who are believed to be working on Apple Pay. The space at Bishopsgate is also part of Apple's contingency plan in case the refurbishment at Battersea is delayed.[4]

In April 2021, ISG Ltd entered into a deal worth a reported £75 million to fit-out the completed space at Battersea for Apple.[5] On September 20, 2021, a new section of the London Tube was opened, with service to Battersea Power Station.[6] In November 2021, Battersea was not expected to be ready in time by the end of the year, largely due to delays related to the COVID-19 pandemic, leading Apple to lease more space at Bishopsgate.[7]

Additional plans[]

A glass elevator in one of the chimneys, named the "Chimney Lift Experience", was originally expected to open in Spring 2022.[8][9] It was observed to be operating in March 2022, but is now set to open to the public in September 2022.[10]
