Rawls are appointed as Retail Guardians and Retail Delivery Consultants to oversee the redevelopment of the Grade II* listed Battersea Power Station. The first completed area of the development is Circus West, on the site’s western edge. Here we delivered a distinctive riverside shopping and dining experience by providing a complete retail design management and delivery service, bringing a vibrant new neighbourhood to life.
The second phase of this project sees the iconic Power Station building reborn as London’s newest shopping, entertainment and living district. We have overseen the transformation of the enormous Turbine Hall A and B, as well as the adjoining Boiler House, into stunning open spaces lined with high-value retail and F&B units. With over 90 shops across 340,000 ft2 of retail space, it will provide a finely curated mix of world-renowned retailers and emerging brands. There will be numerous places to eat and drink – including a 35,000 ft2 urban food hall concept, creating a truly world class retail and leisure experience.
The third phase of the Battersea Power Station project contains over 500 homes, a boutique luxury hotel, as well as countless shops and restaurants. The 42-acre site will also contain a public park and is served by the new London Underground station on the new Northern Line extension.
Designs have also been drawn up for Electric Arcade, which acts as an access route to the public park. The unique semi-covered space creates a distinctive arcade area, seamlessly integrated into the wider development. An undulating ceiling creates movement and flow, with a sculptural spiral staircase leading up into the park.
