Bouygues has been awarded the £1bn contract to build the third phase of the Nine Elms development in south London.
The UK arm of the French contractor will deliver a pedestrianised high street connecting the new Northern Line Tube station to the iconic Battersea Power Station.
Bouygues will also build 1,305 homes, as well as retail and dining space, either side of this street, which will be known as The Electric Boulevard.
It will also deliver Foster + Partners’ Battersea Roof Gardens, which will feature a 355m-long landscaped green space above 15 floors of homes, and Gehry Brothers’ 4,500m2 Prospect Park, which will include a children’s play area and a community hub building.
Battersea Power Station Development Company chief executive Rob Tincknell said: “Bouygues UK demonstrated an impressive approach to the project and had a clear ability to address the challenges of the current London market, resulting in the best cost and programme outcomes. We welcome them to the delivery team that will build these new landmarks for London.”
Bouygues UK chief executive Madani Sow said: “We are honoured, and excited, to have been chosen to deliver phase three of the Battersea Power Station project - one of the most iconic construction projects in Europe at this time.”
NCE published a gallery of images of phase three designs last year. Work is due to start on site in early 2016 and complete in 2020.
Construction is ongoing on phase one, known as Circus West, and phase two – the regeneration of the Power Station itself.
