苹果确认会把伦敦的巴特西发电站设为英国新总部


巴特西发电站公司二期办公场所“最大的租客”就此诞生,不是别人,正是科技巨擘——苹果。它包下了中心锅炉房内6层楼的办公空间,占地50万平方英尺,苹果会在2021年底进驻巴特西。很多人都相信,有这样的巨头撑腰,可以长足地促进这片历史古建的复兴,最后重现曾经的活力。


苹果会占据巴特西40%的办公空间,1400名来自伦敦各地的雇员都会齐聚于此,在西伦敦近20年的历史中,这样大规模的转移也属首例,光商讨过程就长达一年之久。


巴特西发电站开发公司的CEO Rob Tincknell在一份声明中称:“我们会坚持创造出伦敦一个最繁华的新兴社区,这个目标不会有任何改变,而苹果给予我们很大的帮助,毫无疑问他们会帮我们实现这个目标。”伦敦市长萨迪克•汗也表示很高兴,苹果会选择搬进这个曾经制造雾霾的地标性建筑物,巴特西发电站曾经因为污染严重,在1983年被一度关停达30年之久,直到2012年WilkinsonEyre建筑事务所才开始改造这片区域。


苹果位于巴特西的总部,是美国本土外最大的几个办公空间之一,他们在欧洲的主要总部仍旧在爱尔兰的科克,有4000名雇员。按照巴特西发电站的声明,搬进这里对于他们的整个团队来说都是巨大的机会,大家齐聚伦敦办公室,可以一起协作,同时对这片有着丰富历史的地区也是一种支持。

Apple confirms massive six-floor campus in London’s former Battersea Power Station

 

Battersea Power Station Company has confirmed their “largest office tenant” in London will be none other than tech company Apple. The electronics giant will sprawl across six floors and 500,000 square feet inside the “central Boiler House” of the former power station. Apple has said they plan to occupy the space in 2021; many believe their presence will help the development company work towards its goal of revitalizing the historic space.


Apple will take up 40 percent of Battersea Power Station‘s entire office space, and 1,400 employees from various London offices will relocate to the large campus. The transaction is widely thought to be the “largest office letting” in 20 years in London’s West End, and negotiations took place for around one year.


Battersea Power Station Development Company CEO Rob Tincknell said in a statement, “It has always been our clear objective to create one of London’s most thriving new communities and this commitment from Apple will undoubtedly help us achieve our goal.” London Mayor Sadiq Khan said he was “delighted” that Apple would be moving into the landmark power station that once burned coal and has been vacant since its decommissioning in 1983. Architecture firm WilkinsonEyre is refurbishing the iconic space.


Apple’s campus in the Battersea Power Station will be one of the largest outside America. Apple’s main European campus will still be in Cork, Ireland, where around 4,000 people work. According to Battersea Power Station’s statement, Apple said the move would be a “great opportunity” for their entire team to gather from different London offices and be able to work together in one place “while supporting the renovation of a neighborhood rich with history.”
