Apple plans UK HQ at Battersea Power Station
Apple will establish a new UK headquarters at Battersea Power Station, in a coup for the Malaysian company behind the huge building project by the river Thames.

The maker of the iPhone and iPad said on Wednesday that it would lease 500,000 square feet in the former coal-fired power station, which has stood empty for decades.

The group will move 1,400 employees to its new site from eight offices around the capital in 2021, giving a boost to the area and to a city grappling with its future role following the UK’s vote to leave the EU.

Apple’s European headquarters are in Ireland, but it is the latest global technology company to announce a new London building, following Facebook’s announcement late last year of a move to Fitzrovia and Google’s plans to build new offices at King’s Cross.

A consortium of three Malaysian companies — Sime Darby, SP Setia and the state-run Employees’ Provident Fund — is redeveloping the power station and 42 acres around it to include offices, stores and thousands of homes. The area is due to be connected to the London Underground from 2020.

But the £8bn development and the broader regeneration area surrounding it have struggled with a downturn in the market for luxury apartments, which make up a large portion of the development plans.

Apple will take 40 per cent of the space in the grade II listed 1930s power station, which has been derelict for the past 30 years. Its offices will be in the former boiler house, spread across six floors.

苹果(Apple)将在位于泰晤士河旁的巴特西发电站(Battersea Power Station)建立新的英国总部,这对于该大规模房地产项目背后的马来西亚公司是个意外之喜。

iPhone和iPad制造商苹果周三表示,将在以前的这个燃煤发电站租赁50万平方英尺的面积,该电站已空置几十年。

苹果将在2021年将其在伦敦的8个办公地点的1400名员工搬到新址工作,此举将促进该地区以及伦敦的发展,在英国公投决定退欧后,伦敦正艰难应对其未来地位的问题。

苹果的欧洲总部位于爱尔兰,但它是宣布在伦敦建新的办公大楼的最新一家全球科技公司,去年底,Facebook宣布将迁往伦敦费兹洛维亚,同时谷歌(Google)计划在伦敦国王十字车站兴建新的办公楼。

由马来西亚3家公司(Sime Darby、SP Setia和国有的Employees’ Provident Fund)组成的财团正在改造这个发电站以及方圆42英亩的地区,开发项目包括办公楼、商店和数百套公寓。该地区将从2020年起与伦敦地铁(London Underground)连接。

然而,这个造价80亿英镑的开发项目以及周边更广泛的改造地区,正艰难应对豪华公寓市场的低迷。豪华公寓占该开发计划的很大比例。

苹果将占这个旧发电站40%的空间,这个发电站属于上世纪30年代的建筑,被列为二级保护建筑,已废弃了30年。苹果办公区将位于旧发电站的锅炉房,占据6层空间。
