Battersea Power Station has signed another five independent restaurants to Circus Village West, and will open this summer.
The new additions include Mother, an Italian pizza restaurant from Copenhagen; Wright Brothers, a seafood restaurant; Dodd’s Gin, an award winning organic gin; Ben’s Canteen, a neighbourhood hangout; and Duckroad, specialising in seasonal, simple cooking.
The restaurants have been chosen for their “entrepreneurial culture, imaginative menus, creative fit-outs and other unique attributes”.
Once it opens this summer Circus West Village will be accessed via the Thames riverside, through a newly opened route under Grosvenor Railway Bridge called Grosvenor Arch.
Rob Tincknell, CEO of Battersea Power Station Development Company, said: “Creating a new cultural and food quarter for London as part of the £9 billion redevelopment of Battersea is an exciting challenge. We are striving to deliver the best mix of independent, authentic and fun British and international operators – an extension of the existing local community, a place for people to visit, be entertained, try something new, work and live.”
Ravi Govindia, leader of Wandsworth Council and co-chair of the Nine Elms Vauxhall Partnership, said: “The Nine Elms riverside is now being transformed from an industrial no-go area to a new centre for food, arts, culture and business. It will be a unique and valuable addition to London’s South Bank and is already one the greatest sources of new jobs and homes in the entire country.”
A new riverbus passenger pier will open at Battersea Power Station from autumn 2017, supplementing the existing bus and rail links.
The new additions join other brands already signed including Pedler Cru, Vagabond, Flour Power City Bakery, and The CoffeeWorks Project.
The development also includes The Village Hall, run in partnership with Battersea Arts Centre, a dedicated space for events, arts, residents and visitors.
