Those who have registered with the developers will be able to snap up the properties from October 24.

Designed in a subtle 1930s theme adopted from the Grade-II listed former power station, the five apartment blocks designed by Gehry Partners have been inspired by London’s famous John Nash Regency terraces and will sit on either side of pedestrianised shopping street Electric Boulevard.

At the heart of the scheme called Prospect Place, will be Gehry’s Flower building – a striking structure which will offer residents a lounge, library, a large chef’s table dining room, a yoga studio and treatment rooms.

London-based Foster + Partners have designed a building inspired by the 1930s which will be topped by one of the city’s largest roof gardens offering spectacular panoramic views of London.

It will feature a bar, private rooms for hire, private dining rooms and a screening room as well as a private residents’ gym. 

The rippling building, which creates an illusion of waves, will stand in direct contrast to the solidity of the power station. 

There will also be 103 affordable homes, a doctor’s clinic, a commercial gym, a 167-room hotel, as well as shops, cafes and restaurants at street level on Electric Boulevard.

Rob Tincknell, chief executive officer of BPSDC, said: ‘This launch is a very special residential offering; the opportunity to be right above London’s newest pedestrianised high street and at the impressive gateway to The Power Station.

‘The designs from Foster + Partners and Gehry Partners are unique amongst other London developments and will be extremely creative and exciting places for people to live in.’
