    1. You can' be serious. Properties there begin at 900K and the affordable housing is less than 8%. This is not a housing solution for local people – it is entirely for oligarchs form highly unstable countries who want to have a bolt hole when it all goes pear shaped.

  1. it's disgraceful!   1st, abandoning this beautiful & historical building, then allowing developers to make shit-loads of money by flipping the property repeatedly, all while raping the building of some of its treasures, & then having this ugly eyesore to look at!   the new buildings look like an all-inclusive vacation resort designed by someone with a.d.h.d., with the power plant strangled & hidden amongst the shitty architecture…

  2. I was hugely disappointed when I went past this on the train and realised you can hardly see the Power Station from the railway line.Some of the blocks do look rather unusual in design and I thought at first it was to maximise strength and daylight. However, the building in 2:00 to 2:10 I think looks a bit like an untidy pile of blocks. It looks futuristic, but then again so was Thamesmead – once.

  3. Battersea Power Station Development Company are destroying Chelsea Bridge Wharf. Their traffic along Sopwith Way, a 5mph service road, is now at 2-300 a day and most of it is doing 30-40mph, sometimes more. They are currently running an empty bus round Chelsea Bridge Wharf every 10 minutes form 8am to 10pm . I have videoed this bus at speed of up to 50 . Berkeley Homes own this private road and gave access to Batters Power Station Development Company without consulting residents.
