In 2016, when it announced the project, Apple said it was looking forward to opening in 2021 when its staff in the London area move into “this magnificent new development in one of the most famous landmarks in the city.”

Jonathan Prynn for the Evening Standard:

Apple boss Tim Cook flew to visit the iPhone giant’s new London headquarters at Battersea Power Station for the first time.

Mr. Cook, who is expected to stay in London for several days, said: “Apple has been part of the London community for over 40 years and we are thrilled to be bringing together some of our teams at historic Battersea Power Station soon. Once a source of energy for much of London, the transformation this building has undergone honors London’s past and celebrates its future. We are so happy to be part of it ”.

The standard revealed in 2016 that Apple would be the occupant of Battersea’s main office, occupying more than 500,000 square feet of Foster + Partners-designed space over six floors.

Cook’s visit precedes the official opening to the public of the former Grade II * coal-fired power plant, classified as Category II *, on October 14, 2022, nearly 40 years after it stopped producing power for London.

It will have more than 100 shops, bars, restaurants and a 24,000 square foot food hall in the former Boiler House which opens next year.

Around 2,000 residents have already moved into the power plant itself and other new buildings in the £ 9 billion development.
