Luxury Riverside Apartments Launch In Chelsea

Posted 7 October 2022 by Keith Osborne

A collection of 260 luxury apartments has been launched as the latest part of the Chelsea Waterfront development...

Developer CK Asset has announced the sales launch of Powerhouse at Chelsea Waterfront, SW10, the next phase of the redevelopment of the iconic Lots Road Power Station.

The building, which had powered the London Underground for over a century, was, along with Battersea and Bankside – one of the city’s three great power stations built over a century ago. Its chimneys soaring 275 feet high above the River Thames, it was completed in 1905 as the first steel-framed building in the British Isles, often described as the “design grandfather” of Battersea Power Station. It has been transformed into a collection of 260 apartments.

Dr Edmond Ho, director & general manager of Hutchison Property Group (UK) Limited, said: “This latest project being unveiled at Chelsea Waterfront – Powerhouse – is an iconic London landmark and a cathedral of the industrial age which has been rejuvenated by a world-class team of architects and designers. Taking on a revolutionary new form, Powerhouse will offer a 21st century living experience like no other in one of London’s most coveted boroughs.”

PowerhouseToday, a team of architects led by Sir Terry Farrell has restored the historic red brick walls whilst its interiors have been re-designed as lavish living spaces by the award-winning Fiona Barratt Interiors.

Meticulously chosen for their reputation for incorporating historical design features and references to create modern signature residences, Fiona Barratt Interiors has honoured the Power Station's rich industrial heritage and combined modern elements with unique points of historical interest. Full-height evergreen trees have been purposefully placed where the building’s turbines once stood, whilst flowing water troughs echo the creation of steam and two industrial chimneys anchor at either end of the space. Powerhouse’s entrance also boasts a spectacular ‘electric current’ lighting installation – framed by the building's vast elegant arched windows – representing the original purpose of the building: the generation of power.

Boasting a multitude of state-of-the-art amenities, Powerhouse will be professionally managed by Rendall and Rittner concierge with five-star services around the clock, from general house management to individual booking requests. The exclusive health and fitness centre, housing a luxurious spa, a fully equipped gym, and a 20-metre swimming pool, offers a private sanctuary for exercise and relaxation. The elegantly appointed Residents’ Club Lounge with its delightful views of the river is the ideal multi-purpose space for work or social gatherings. The restaurants at Chelsea Waterfront boast vistas across the river, and there are beautifully lit landscaped gardens

Chelsea WaterfrontThe luxury development comprises 10 buildings set across 8.85 acres which, in addition to Powerhouse, includes Tower West, a 37-storey tower, the tallest residential building in SW10 and Tower East a 25-storey tower, as well as the Rotunda. Powerhouse is situated across the bridge from the gardens at Chelsea Waterfront which have been thoughtfully crafted by leading landscape architect Randle Siddeley to create an oasis of nature with views along the river to Battersea and Chelsea Bridge.

Chelsea Waterfront is situated less than a five-minute walk from Imperial Wharf station for direct access to central London, while nearby Chelsea Harbour Pier provides riverboat services on The Thames Clipper. Within the immediate vicinity, residents can enjoy a diverse selection of Michelin-starred restaurants, antique shops, luxury concept stores and cafés, such as Medlar, Bluebird Chelsea, and John Nicolas Antiques.

Two- to four-bedroom apartments at Powerhouse start from £1.7million. Find out more at www.chelseawaterfront.com.
