Battersea Power Station Development Company has signed six more retailers for its redevelopment of the landmark London site.

Deputy Mayor of London for Business, Rajesh Agrawal, visited Circus West Village, the first phase of the regeneration of Battersea Power Station, to meet with Rob Tincknell, CEO of (BPSDC), and the owners and chefs behind the restaurants, cafes, bars and shops opening at the scheme.

The visit coincided with the one year anniversary of the opening of the new stretch of riverwalk and comes as Battersea Power Station announces the next wave of retailers to open this year. They include an independent cinema, a craft brewery, a bakery, a florist and new restaurants offering international cuisine.

The new additions will join a curated selection of restaurants, cafes, shops and businesses that have already opened, bringing the total number of confirmed retailers at Circus West Village to 20.

The six retail signings are:

• Archlight Cinema: An independent cinema that is a sister venue to the Olympic Cinema in Barnes. It will be a boutique, three-screen cinema located in three redeveloped former railway arches

• Baker and Spice: Bakery and all-day café serving breads and pastries

• Cinnamon Kitchen: Contemporary Indian restaurant featuring modern food created by celebrity chef, Vivek Singh

• Moyses Stevens: A boutique florist that has been designing fresh flower bouquets since 1876, winning two royal warrants. 

• Tonkotsu: Japanese restaurant serving a menu of ramen, gyozas and a selection of other sides and desserts. 

Rajesh Agrawal, Deputy Mayor of London for Business, said: “I am pleased to see these entrepreneurs moving into this new site. As well as homes, this development is supporting new businesses and delivering economic prosperity for the capital.”

Rob Tincknell, CEO of BPSDC, said: “Battersea Power Station is fast emerging as London’s newest and most exciting food and drink destination. We are delighted to welcome to the line up several more fantastic operators that share our passion for creating a new, unique community focused destination for London.”

Over a thousand residents have now moved into homes at Circus West Village and over half a million people have already visited the riverwalk since it opened.

The MBNA Thames Clippers River Bus service is now operational, putting Battersea Power Station within 15 minutes of the West End and under 40 minutes to Canary Wharf. A pedestrian entrance has also opened, connecting Circus West Village with the rest of Nine Elms via Battersea Park Road.
