Apple plans big London Battersea base
Apple has revealed that it will relocate 1,400 of its staff to a new London campus in the redeveloped Battersea power station.
The addition of Apple to the £9bn project has been seen as a major coup for its developers. It is understood that the Californian brand will keep its European headquarters in Cork, Ireland. There were questions raised over the future of the Cork site after the European Union ordered Apple to pay back €13bn in unpaid taxes related to its Irish operation. Following Brexit there has also been suggestion that the UK government would welcome Apple to the UK should it decide to move its Irish base.
‘We are looking forward to opening Apple’s new London campus at The Battersea Power Station in 2021. 1400 Apple employees from existing offices around London will relocate to this magnificent new development at one of London’s best known landmarks. 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.’
