Treasury Holdings intends to hire ten architectural firms in 2010 to work on different tranches of the 750,000m² site for Battersea Power Station alongside Rafael Viñoly, who will be the master architect for the project.

The master plan, which is scheduled to be submitted to Wandsworth Council in London in the coming weeks, features 3,700 new homes plus 140,000m² of office and 46,000m² of retail space, with plans to include a hospital and a hotel.

A few adjustments to the plan have been made in terms of building locations, height and roof profile which will now house a tennis court and a swimming pool.

Work is expected to begin in 2012 and will be complete by 2020.

Treasury Holdings has a 67% stake in Real Estate Opportunities, owner of Battersea Power Station.
