Latest Battersea project stalls

The fate of London’s iconic Battersea Power Station is again unresolved. The latest proposal for the site has failed after the Irish property firm Real Estate Opportunities failed to repay a loan. The site will now be put up for sale, with Chelsea Football Club possibly interested in building a new stadium, retaining as much of the Grade II* listed building as possible.

These plans do not have universal approval and there are other interested parties wishing to see the turbine hall turned into an exhibition space and offices, but after the repeated failures to deliver a scheme to secure the future of the power station any solution to the current dereliction of the site is worth serious evaluation.
