Battersea Power Station Welcomes More Retail Openings This Summer

The Minister of Communications and Digital Fahmi Fadzil recently visited the Battersea Power Station for London Tech Week. As part of the visit, he received a tour of the new riverside neighbourhood in central London, including the recently opened and restored Grade II* listed Battersea Power Station.

Since opening in October 2022, Battersea Power Station has welcomed nearly six million visitors through its doors and its success will continue with more retail openings this summer, including Apple Battersea which opens at 4pm today, and a 24,000 sq ft Arcade Food Hall, BAO, and Bounce Ping Pong opening later this year.

Other brands to recently open include LEGO® and neighbourhood pasta restaurant, Noci. Battersea Power Station is also home to Malaysian brands including pewter specialists Royal Selangor and authentic Malaysian restaurant, Roti King.

“I have been to Battersea Power Station three times in 2019, 2020 and now today. It is amazing to see the journey, and what can be achieved with Malaysian capital and talent, delivered in partnership with the UK,” said Fahmi.

Battersea Project Holding Company Chairman Tan Sri Jagan Sabapathy, said they had created a new home for tech in London, with numerous tech-led brands calling Battersea Power Station home, including Apple, that have taken 500,000 sq ft of office space and are opening a new store today. There is also the leading home technology company, SharkNinja.

“We hope to attract more innovative tech brands with a new 200,000 sq ft office space, 50 Electric Boulevard, due to complete later this year,” said Jagan.

The MDEC event was hosted in Control Room A, an important Art Deco landmark within the Power Station that was at the forefront of technology in the 1920s and 1930s, responsible for distributing up to one-fifth of London’s power across the UK capital, including to such prestigious addresses as Buckingham Palace and Houses of Parliament.

Under the admirable custodianship of its Malaysian shareholders which together form Battersea Project Holding Company, Sime Darby Property, S P Setia and the Employees Provident Fund (EPF), Battersea Power Station has been expertly restored to its former glory, and the wider area has been transformed into a vibrant community.

In 2019, leading fund management companies Permodalan Nasional Berhad (PNB) and EPF became the long-term commercial asset holders securing the future of the landmark for many generations to come.
