Londoners given priority for Battersea Power Station flats as May release date announced

By Gemma Jamieson

Eager Londoners can now register to buy one of the 254 flats inside one of the capital’s most iconic buildings.

The unique apartments inside Battersea Power Station will officially go on sale on May 1, and will vary in size from studios to five bedroom flats.

The properties will only be marketed to Londoners, due to increasing pressures to freeze out foreign buyers who have become a major contributor to the housing shortage in London.

Rob Ticknell, chief executive officer of Battersea Power Station Development Company, said: “There has been a lot of comment recently about London’s housing problems and we believe the only way to try and solve this is to build great homes and create a community that people actually want to live in.

“We feel it’s right that it is reserved for people who call London their home.”

Londoners will be eager to buy a piece of iconic London especially with the TfL plans to extend the Northern line to Battersea. Journey times into central London will be reduced to just 15 minutes. 

The flats were bought in 2012 by Malaysian developers who are contributing £200m to the Northern Line Extension.
