• Battersea Power Station currently has over 3,500 office workers from 30 different companies, including the 500,000 sq ft Apple store, SharkNinja and IWG’s flexible co-working space called The Engine Room.

KUALA LUMPUR (March 1): 50 Electric Boulevard, a 200,000 sq ft office building designed by Foster + Partners located in Battersea Power Station, has been completed, according to a statement on Wednesday.

50 Electric Boulevard is Well Platinum, Breeam Outstanding-certified, and SmartScore Platinum-rated. It has been designed with biophilic features for the well-being of users and smart tech in mind, such as a 1,800 sq ft communal roof garden, outdoor terraces, floor-to-ceiling glazing with openable windows, trees and giant skylights. 

Facilities in the building include 319 bicycle parking spaces, state-of-the-art changing rooms and showers, and 26 dedicated electric vehicle parking spaces.

Foster + Partners head of studio Grant Brooker said: “We wanted 50 Electric Boulevard to be flooded with light, and, of course, to benefit from natural ventilation. We believe its floor-to-ceiling windows and cantilevered balconies create a permeable, flexible and healthy working environment. The use of greenery and natural materials throughout the spaces are positive benefits to the well-being for everyone who works there.

“A glass-fronted entrance lobby on Electric Boulevard features touchdown workspaces and relaxed seating areas. The communal pavilion above is lit by generous roof lights, and includes a coffee bar and bleacher seating for larger events.

“50 Electric Boulevard’s soft undulating form creates a varying floorplate, which provides maximum flexibility for its tenants, and creates a building that can evolve to meet the future requirements of the workplace. The design is closely related to our adjacent Battersea Roof Gardens building, and they both aim to create a strong contrast with the monumental and iconic Power Station,” Brooker added.

Amenities within the building vicinity include the 200-acre (80.94-hectare) Battersea Park with running tracks, lake and tennis courts, as well as a variety of commercial offerings such as Zara, Zara Home, M&S Foodhall, Dishoom, Boot Beauty and Massimo Dutti.

Battersea Power Station currently has over 3,500 office workers from 30 different companies, including the 500,000 sq ft Apple store, SharkNinja and IWG’s flexible co-working space called The Engine Room.

“50 Electric Boulevard provides occupiers with the opportunity to join the thriving community at Battersea Power Station, with its amenity rich environment offering a strong mix of retail, bars, restaurants, and leisure experiences for employees to enjoy right on the doorstep,” said Battersea Power Station Development Company head of asset management Sam Cotton.

“With 28.3 million sq ft of leases expiring in the next three years, according to Knight Frank, demand for tech-enabled, new-build, sustainable office spaces in London has reached a 10-year high. Our current workspaces in the iconic Power Station are fully let to global brands, and we are now bringing 50 Electric Boulevard, a new world-class, next-generation workplace to the market to reflect the demand we have seen to date from best-in-class businesses who want to become a part of our new riverside neighbourhood.”

Battersea Power Station is a 42-acre riverside neighbourhood in central London owned by Permodalan Nasional Bhd (PNB), Sime Darby Property Bhd, and the Employees Provident Fund (EPF).
