Apple to Move London Employees to 'Spectacular' New Headquarters at Battersea Power Station

Apple is planning to move its London employees to a spectacular new headquarters at Battersea Power Station, reports The Standard.

The company is said to be moving 1,400 staff from eight different sites around the city to 'a new Apple campus' at the former electricity generator site. The power station stopped generating electricity in 1983 but more recently a viable new masterplan by Rafael Viñoly has reframed its redevelopment as part of a wider neighbourhood. This includes improved infrastructure via an extension to the London Underground's Northern Line and connections with nearby developments at Nine Elms including the US Embassy and New Covent Garden market.

Employees will occupy all six floors of office space in the brick 'cathedral of power' which is being restored after having been abandoned for 33 years.

In a statement, Apple said it was looking forward to the 2021 opening of 'our new London campus' as staff relocates to 'this magnificent new development at one of the city’s best-known landmarks'.

"This is a great opportunity to have our entire team working and collaborating in one location while supporting the renovation of a neighbourhood rich with history."

The deal took about a year to negotiate. Battersea Power Station Development CEO Rob Tincknell said: “We are delighted Apple chose to make this their home in 2021. It is a testament to not only the fantastic building but the wider regeneration of the 42-acre site, which offers a carefully curated mix of homes, businesses and leisure amid extraordinary open spaces and new transport links. It has always been our clear objective to create one of London’s most thriving new communities and this commitment from Apple will undoubtedly help us achieve this goal.”

They paid the taxes requirements for the country they resided in . The fact Europe can claim what ever they want, they do not like all the media attention they are getting. They have NOT liked hearing for the last couple years they ship jibs over seas. They waited years to file suit intentionally, because the company built up huge reserves of cash in several of countries so then huge libations could bought by them.

Their messages app most likely records 100% of data. Just like when your clear the error logs on the phone by syncing data. All that data is still recorded in the default logs, so are the phone calls, and messages. So it when they take screen shots of your data to load the pages faster. They appear to always have done that, yet claim their the greasiest gift to earth . When a majority of the ideas and patents where from other companies. They just managed to incorporate all them in device ( regardless if they are approved to use them or not) they make far money using them and paying peanut lawsuits..

Apple claims they don't store users' location-related data, but a leaked police document shows that's not true.
