LONDON: Battersea Power Station officially opened its doors to a quarter of a million visitors during the weekend, exploring the neighbourhood’s new pedestrian high street, Electric Boulevard.  

Following the forty-year closure of one of London’s most defining landmarks, Battersea Power Station underwent an eight-year restoration project. Battersea Power Station outlets like Adidas, Nike and Mulberry reported positive reactions and high sales volume during the opening weekend.

“The public response to the opening of Battersea Power Station and our new pedestrianised high street, Electric Boulevard, has been truly amazing, and exceeded our expectations,” Battersea Power Station Development Company (BPSDC) chief executive officer Simon Murphy said.

“Over 250,000 people from the local community, across London and from further afield, came to visit the newly restored Power Station at the very earliest opportunity, demonstrating the attachment people feel to this iconic landmark. On behalf of our shareholders, I would like to thank every single person who came down to visit, and we look forward to many more visitors over the coming months and years – this is just the beginning,” he added.

Visitors also enjoyed the Festival of Power, a free five-day festival celebrating the history and cultural contributions of Battersea Power Station, with highlights such as Battersea Power Station Community Choir performances, Arcadia’s Lords of Lightning and the Bright Sparks Trail. 

The Festival of Power continues from Oct 22 to 23 with performances on the Pavilion Stage in Power Station Park and buskers entertaining passerbys during the day.  

The wider Battersea Power Station development is owned by a consortium of Malaysian investors comprising SP Setia Bhd, Sime Darby Property Bhd and The Employees’ Provident Fund (EPF).
