Tech giant Apple is setting up its UK Headquarters at Battersea Power Stations iconic Boiler House building, in a move an Apple spokesperson called a “great opportunity” for the company.
The company will occupy 500,000 sq ft of space across six floors of the building, and will account for 40 percent of total office space – making it the largest tenant on the site.
Set on the banks of the River Thames, the Power Station is a famed Grade II listed building that was previously a functioning coal-fired power station, and was decommissioned in 1983.
The Boiler House features four towering chimneys, and is in the second phase out of eight in a multibillion-pound restoration.
The 42 acre site, which offers a mix of homes, businesses and leisure, will soon be home to 1,400 Apple employees.
Rob Tincknell, CEO of Battersea Power Station Development Company said: “We are delighted that Apple has chosen to make Battersea Power Station its home in 2021.
It has 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.”
