Peabody seeks cultural tenant at Nine Elms, near Battersea Power Station

Outdoor space with buildings and people walking

We are searching for a dynamic cultural organisation, charity, or business to become a tenant in a new affordable residential community in Nine Elms.

Published: 12/04/2023

The new 52-square-metre space is ideal for a cultural organisation in need of long-term residence who will thrive in a residential environment.

The initial 10-year lease is available at low rent from October this year, with an additional revenue grant of £125,000 over the first five years. This is a call for organisations with a need for an immediate home.

The space is situated on a ground floor corner that will open onto a large grass square and face a range of creative industry units, forming part of an emerging hub of creative talent.  The available space will be part of a new, bustling community that extends to an NHS facility, neighbouring new housing developments, and student accommodation. It is located within a 100 percent affordable housing scheme of 386 new homes, delivered by Peabody, and is part of the Battersea Power Station Cultural Strategy. The Making Space for Culture team at the GLA are also granting additional funds for the finalists to develop their business proposal.

How to apply

Cultural organisations that would like to be considered for the space are invited to express their interest online by 12 midday, Wednesday 10 May. Three finalists will be selected to make full proposals between 19 May - 14 June. Finalist interviews will be on 19 June 2023.

Further information for applicants can be found in the application pack.

The new tenant will be appointed by a dedicated selection panel, which will include Robin Klassnik, OBE, Director and Founder of Matt’s Gallery, which recently relocated to this creative district in Nine Elms.
