Gehry Partners and Foster + Partners have been selected to design phase three of the Battersea Power Station redevelopment project in London. Together, the prestigious duo will design a retail pedestrian street that will link the power station to the new Northern Line extension. In addition to this, each practice will design a residential building along the avenue, which will be Gehry’s first residential project in London.

“Our goal is to help create a neighborhood and a place for people to live that respects the iconic Battersea Power Station while connecting it into the broader fabric of the city,” Gehry stated. “We hope to create a design that is uniquely London, that respects and celebrates the historical vernacular of the city.”

Once complete, phase three will add 1,200 residential units, a 200 room hotel, retail and restaurant space, a library and additional leisure space.

The 39-acre, mixed-use master plan was originally designed by Rafael Viñoly. In total, the regeneration project will add more that 3,400 homes to the area. As reported by BDOnline, Wilkinson Eyre has been appointed to the Power Station building and Ian Simpson Architects alongside dRMM designed Circus West, phase one of the development.
