The famed Battersea Power Station in London is getting a new tenant, Apple. And a new US Embassy is under construction just yards away. They're part of a massive redevelopment in London's borough of Vauxhall that includes 4,000 apartments for sale, over a million square feet of offices, stores, as well as parks, events spaces and a new Tube station designed by a Who's Who of architects that includes Frank Gehry, Norman Foster and Bjarke Ingels. The dense, high-end new neighborhood has a very American flavor. But some locals are asking, what exactly will it do for London?
