– Olia Sardarova

Boutique boxing gym brand BXR London, which is backed by Anthony Joshua, has revealed plans to open a new site at Battersea Power Station that will be designed by Bergman Interiors.

Set to open in 2021, the 14,000sq ft (1,300sq m) gym will be BXR’s second and largest – and it will form part of Battersea Power Station’s second phase of redevelopment.

As well as the BXR members-only club, the brand will open three Sweat by BXR pay-to-train studios, including a Versaclimber-based Cardio Studio for low-impact workouts, a Strength & Conditioning studio and a Skills studio for teaching and developing boxing technique.

BXR Battersea will be located in the Power Station’s Turbine Hall B, which was completed in the 1950s. The Grade II building is being transformed by the Battersea Power Station Development Company.

"We're thrilled to be opening at Battersea Power Station in one of London’s most iconic redevelopment projects," said Olia Sardarova, co-founder of BXR.

Sam Cotton, deputy head of leasing at Battersea Power Station Development Company, added: "The BXR concept is unlike any other fitness brand out there. We are really looking forward to seeing what the team will do with the one-of-a-kind space inside one of the Power Station’s Turbine Halls."
