AQS will be installing ductwork on the impressive new Chelsea Waterfront development, an 8-acre site where the former Lots Road Power Station, which closed down in October 2002, used to be located.
The first phase of the new Chelsea Waterfront scheme in SW10 will provide 706 new homes in 10 buildings, which includes two 37- and 25-storey glass residential towers, 3 riverside buildings with landscaped gardens and the refurbishment of the historic Lots Road Power Station.
The re-development will include shops, restaurants and bars and a residents’ club devoted to health and fitness. These will be accompanied by water gardens, three pedestrian bridges across tidal Chelsea Creek and a 660-yard riverside promenade.
The next phase includes apartments in a pair of slender skyscrapers. The old Lots Road Power Station, a prized industrial relic with vast arched windows and tall twin chimneys (so it has more than a passing resemblance to the nearby Battersea Power Station) will yield 260 flats and a “covered high street” with restaurants, cafés and shops.
