Powerhouse: Riverfront living with a legacy of over 100 years

Standing tall in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea is a brand-new residential development, carrying with it a legacy of over 100 years. From being a symbol of London’s industrial might that powered the city’s railway and Tube network to a beacon of luxury living by the River Thames Lots Road Power Station has seen a transformation like none other from the 20th to the 21st century.

Powerhouse Riverfront living with a legacy

A timeless piece of London’s history, this is the city’s last of three Grade II listed power station buildings with an exceptional restoration story. After Battersea and Bankside’s transformation into modern, mixed-use property developments, Lots Road Power Station is now available for discerning buyers who wish to own a piece of London’s glorious past and make it a part of their own promising future. During its’ glory days, Lots Road was termed the ‘design grandfather’ of the Battersea Power Station owing to its structural composition and 275-foot chimneys that were Europe’s tallest at the time.
