“We learned a few weeks ago that Apple would be opening a major new UK campus inside the iconic Battersea Power Station building,” Ben Lovejoy reports for 9to5Mac. “A developer video has now given us a sneak preview of how the $17B redevelopment will look once it is complete in 2021 – and it’s pretty spectacular.”

“Apple will be leasing around 40% of the office space in the building, amounting to a total of 500,000 square feet,” Lovejoy reports. “The company will be relocating around 1,400 employees to the site in 2021, but the campus will be able to accommodate up to 3,000 staff, allowing plenty of room for future expansion.”

Lovejoy reports, “One of the chimney stacks will be turned into a viewing platform, with an elevator running up the interior of the shaft.”
