UNITED KINGDOM

A 41-acre riverside community made up of

all ages and lifestyles, a nexus of culture,

commerce, retail and leisure and home

to 18-acres of new public space, with its

own new Zone 1 underground station,

the Battersea Power Station is no longer

a stranger to the world. Developed by the

consortium consisting of S P Setia, Sime

Darby and the Employees Provident Fund

(EPF), construction work has commenced

on site, where repair work on the iconic

chimneys has begun.

Phase 2, the power station itself, was

launched in London in May 2014, presenting

a unique opportunity to buy a home within

this iconic landmark. Majority of the 254

properties were sold within the first week

of sales. Designed by award-winning

British practice, Wilkinson Eyre Architects,

the redevelopment will provide over 2

million square feet of new offices, shops,

restaurants, leisure venues and homes,

becoming one of the most amazing places

in London.

In October 2014, keeping to the momentum

from Phase 2 launch, Phase 3a of the

Battersea Power Station was launched in

an unprecedented global launch in major

cities across the world. Phase 3 will be the

main gateway to the entire development,

connecting the Northern Line Extension

Station to the power station itself. 50%

of Phase 3a was snapped up at the global

launch.

The Group’s 40% share in the re-

development of the Battersea Power Station

generated a significant RM1.2 billion in sales

in FY2014.
