Battersea Power StationCircus West Village, the first phase of Battersea Power Station to launch, opens in summer 2017.

This riverside power station, the masterpiece of architect Giles Gilbert Scott, Grade II listed Battersea Power Station has taken on an iconic status in the capital. With its huge frame and four white smoke-stacks (two of which were built in 1933, the remaining two in 1955) protruding into the London sky, the construction initially received protests from those who felt the building was too large and would be an eyesore. The simplicity and elegance of its design soon won over its critics and quickly became a proud addition to the London skyline. Its generators fell silent in 1983. Thirty seven years later, in 2017, the site is being redeveloping into a multi-use mix of flats, a fitness studio, landscaped parks and riverside restaurants. At the time of writing the building still remains inaccessible to visitors. It can, however, by admired from the outside and still warrants a visit, symbolising as it does the living history and evolving nature of London architecture and design. View it while you can, from the north bank of the Thames at Pimlico or Chelsea Bridge.
