Foster + Partners has teamed up with Gehry Partners to design the primary entrance to London’s Battersea Power Station.
The designers revealed the first images of phase three of the mixed-use development, unveiling a massive gateway connecting the Northern Line Extension station to the Power Station.
Titled ‘The Electric Boulevard’, the scheme is positioned to the south of the existing brick structure and will feature a high street formed by an undulating Foster-designed tower known as ‘The Skyline’ and Gehry’s five-building ‘Prospect Place.’
Housing more than 1,3000 homes and over 350,000 square feet of retail and dining space, the boulevard is expected to become one of London’s most distinguished high streets.
The Battersea Power Station master plan was originally designed by Rafael Viñoly.
Work began on the development’s first phase, Circus West, in July 2013 and restoration of the Power Station itself will begin shortly.
