Zara chooses Battersea Power Station for first central store south of the river
Zara will be opening a 48,800 sq ft store on “London’s newest high street”, Battersea Power Station’s new Electric Boulevard development
The store will span 48,800 sq ft across two floors and will be the retailer’s first central London store situated south of the river.
The store will stock all of the brand’s product ranges, across womenswear, menswear, kidswear and homeware.
Zara will be joining a line-up of international brands set to call Battersea Power Station home, which so far include Ray-Ban, Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, The Kooples, Mango, Reiss, Aēsop and Calvin Klein.
Battersea Power Station is aiming to become the capital’s leading retail and leisure destination for Londoners and international visitors once it opens from September 2022.
Simon Murphy, Chief Executive Officer at Battersea Power Station Development Company (BPSDC), said: “We are creating a completely new high street for London and to have an internationally renowned high street brand like ZARA open a significant store in the UK and the first store south of the river in central London at Battersea Power Station is a testament to the continued desirability of this unique project. With our very own London Underground station and river bus pier, we’re also set to be one of the best-connected shopping, dining and cultural areas in the capital and we look forward to welcoming visitors to Battersea Power Station from September of this year.”
Sam Cotton, Head of Leasing at Battersea Power Station Development Company said: “Bringing powerhouse brands such as ZARA to Battersea Power Station is very exciting and helps firmly cement us as the new go-to place for shopping in London. There is no doubt that Battersea Power Station will be one of the must-visit destinations once we open the Grade II* listed building and Electric Boulevard to the public from September this year. We have already announced a strong line-up of brands and all I can say is watch this space as there’s still more to come!”
