Apple has revealed that it will moves it UK headquarters into the redeveloped Battersea Power Station. The iPhone maker will merge its London offices and bring 1,400 staff into the new space when it’s completed in 2021.
The deal is said to have taken a year to thrash out. The 500,000 square foot space being leased means it will be one of the largest offices in the capital outside of the City and Docklands financial districts.
Apple will take up residence in the top six floors of the former power station’s rejuvenated boiler house. It will be the largest single tenant in a development which has taken years to get off of the ground and has been dogged by controversy.
“This is a great opportunity to have our entire team working and collaborating in one location while supporting the renovation of a neighbourhood rich with history,” said Apple.
The move could mean space for the company to launch new products, as well as be a home for designers of its future products.
Apple has recently launched its new iPhone 7 and Apple Watch Series 2. Sales of the former are said to be well down on previous models.
