The Battersea Power Station Development Company (BPSDC) has unveiled plans for the third phase of its redevelopment of the power station site in London's SW8.

The third phase of the regeneration, which has been designed by architects Gehry Partners and Foster + Partners, will include the construction of 1,300 homes on either site of a new high street to be known as 'Electric Boulevard'. It will also include a 160-bedroom hotel, shops, restaurants and leisure space. 103 of the new homes will be affordable.

The plans are part of the wider Battersea Power Station masterplan, which comprises more than 3,400 homes as well as offices, shops, restaurants, bars, cafes, hotels, community and leisure facilities and 18 acres of open space.

“We have set out to make Battersea a showcase for the world’s very best architects and the designs we are unveiling today demonstrate that commitment in action," said BPSDC chief executive Rob Tincknell in a statement.

"Phase three is an important part of our plans for the Power Station site, creating a new thoroughfare which will be at the heart of the new vibrant community. We are determined to create a genuine sense of place, and developing landmark buildings in which people are proud to make their home and work in is vital to us achieving that aim,” Tincknell said.

BPSDC will be hosting an exhibition of the third phase plans this weekend, following which it said it will submit a detailed planning application to Wandsworth Council.
