London's Battersea Power Station is featured on the cover of Pink Floyd's 1977 album Animals. It's an iconic album cover image. Well, the location is getting a bit of an upgrade. It is being repurposed and is being turned into a residential and industrial complex.
It will eventually boast offices, stores and luxury living quarters.
The BBC has said that the recognizable smokestacks will be demolished, due to their poor condition; they can't be refurbished. But they are not going to be gone forever. They will be rebuilt and painted to look as they once did. So the history will somewhat remain.
The project should be wrapped by 2016.
Would you want to live here, at the refurbished scene of a famous rock album cover?
