Favourite Regeneration Project
Tate Modern, London – The iconic former Bankside Power Station was originally built in two phases between 1947 and 1963 and apart from the electrical substation which EDF still use to power a large part of the City and South London, the station was decommissioned in 1981. In 1996, following a £12 million grant from the English Partnerships regeneration agency the site was purchased and work began turning the power station into one of the worlds largest museums of modern and contemporary art. In 2010 a further tower was developed on the south side of the building, using redundant oil tanks as the foundation and further gallery space. The Tate Modern can be seen as an exemplar British regeneration project and has been a crucial part of the huge transformation of the Bankside area of London. Millions of visitors from all over the world go to the Tate Modern each year, the number of people living in the area has more than doubled over the past two decades, and thousands of new workers have arrived as large and small businesses have moved to the area. New hotels, cafés, shops and restaurants have also sprung up to cater for these new communities.
