Apple CEO Tim Cook announces opening of Apple's revamped office at London

Apple CEO Tim Cook revealed that the company will open its latest UK office at London's iconic Battersea Power Station, two years later than originally planned. 

 Back in 2018, Apple was first revealed to be planning this new location for its UK headquarters. Then there were reports that Apple employees would move into the structure by 2021. With construction delays on the project due to the coronavirus outbreak, Apple is reportedly looking for alternatives. Now Tim Cook has tweeted that Apple will move into the building in early 2023.

"We can't wait to open a new office at the iconic Battersea Power Station for our many team members in London early next year. It's a tribute to this incredible city and a reflection of our commitment to Apple in the UK promise for the future.”

At the time of initial reports, Apple was said to have eight offices in London. The Battersea Power Station project could combine all eight into one, accommodating around 1400 employees. Battersea Power Station's iconic four towers have made it a landmark on London's South Bank, including seeing it in Doctor Who in the '60s. But in the 1980s, the generator was no longer functioning properly and was abandoned for decades.

Battersea Power Station will reopen on 14 October 2022 as a retail, leisure and commercial operation with more than 100 shops, bars, restaurants and offices. Battersea Power Station Underground Station opens in 2021, serving the Northern Line area, meaning the new facility is a 15-minute drive from central London.
