Apple is to establish a new London headquarters at Battersea Power Station, one of the city’s most recognisable landmarks.

The tech giant will occupy about 500,000 sq ft of space across six floors of the central Boiler House from 2021, moving 1,400 employees there from eight offices around the capital.

It will account for 40 per cent of the development’s total office space.

Apple currently has 2,530 staff in total in London, including about 1,100 working in its stores.

The Mayor of London, said the deal is a “sign that London is open to the biggest brands in the world and the leading city for trade and investment”.

The move follows a multi-billion-pound restoration of the former power station, which has stood unoccupied for decades on the banks of the River Thames.

Apple’s main European headquarter will remain in Ireland, where it employs 4,000 people
