It's in the new Tom Cruise film Edge of Tomorrow and I've had more than one person tell me they thought it was CGI.

It's almost impossibly big.

Battersea Power Station | Nine Elms SW8

London forum thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=650929

Official website: http://www.batterseapowerstation.co.uk/



Project facts
  • Developer: Sime Darby and SP Setia
  • Masterplan architect: Rafael Viñoly
  • Cost: £8 billion ($13bn)
  • Area: 39 acres
  • Homes: 3,400



Demolition of the first chimney is imminent. To raise awareness, a large banner has been placed on the western side of the power station:

Quote:
Chimneys Rebuild Programme: Temporary Information Banner installed on Power Station
Battersea Power Station
June 2014


Battersea Power Station Development Company (“BPSDC”), on behalf of the shareholders, is pleased to confirm that work has started to install a temporary public information banner on the western side of the Power Station to increase awareness of the imminent chimney replacement programme which will safeguard them for future generations.

The temporary banner, which is over 100m in length and 20m tall, explains that the iconic chimneys are to be rebuilt and seeks to reassure people that the new chimneys will be visually identical to the chimneys when they were first built, via a ‘Spot The Difference’ message and image.

Visible from Chelsea Bridge and the railway line in and out of Victoria Station, the banner will be in place until at least the autumn of 2014 to encourage the public to find out more information on the history of the chimneys; the reason for undertaking the rebuild; and detail on the works by directing people to: www.batterseapowerstation.co.uk/chimneys

if it's the chimneys on Battersea, it's because they have asbestos

Asbestos never hurt nobody. Adds a rustic flavour to your life. Keep it, I say.
