Apple said employees from eight existing offices around the city will relocate in the “new London campus” which will open in 2021.
“It’s a great opportunity to have our entire team working and collaborating in one location while supporting the renovation of a neighbourhood rich with history,” Apple said.
The 42-acre Battersea Power Station is a former electricity generator which was recently restored by a consortium formed by Malaysian shareholders Sime Darby, SP Setia and the Employees Provident Fund.
The disused power station is an iconic structure in London, featuring on the album cover for Pink Floyd’s Animals.
Apple called it a “magnificent new development at one of the city’s best-known landmarks”.
The Californian company has taken enough space for 3,000 employees and will occupy the top six floors inside the former boiler house.
Apple’s main European HQ will remain at Cork, Ireland, where it employs 4,000 people.
Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said in a statement that he was delighted that Apple was moving in.
“It is a further sign that London is open to the biggest brands in the world and the leading city for trade and investment,” he said.
