IMPERIAL WHARF is a railway station in Fulham
Fulham
within 500 metres of Chelsea in south-west London
London
on the West London
London
Line and in common with many stations has given rise to its own sub-district name IMPERIAL WHARF, which is to some minds synonymous with Chelsea Harbour . The station is between West Brompton and Clapham Junction stations and services are provided by London Overground
London Overground
and Southern .

The station opened on Sunday 27 September 2009 and is managed by London Overground

.

The station is in the sub-district of Sands End
Sands End
where the railway passes over Townmead Road. It takes its name from the adjacent redevelopment of a brownfield , former industrial, site, which has been developed into a luxury 1,800 apartment river-side complex by property developers St George since 2004. As the Imperial Wharf development continued to grow, so did the business case for the Imperial Wharf station. A further application for 1,500 residential units including a 37 storey tower was submitted to Hammersmith ">

The station is also adjacent to Chelsea Harbour
Chelsea Harbour
, and was known by this name during early stages of development; indeed its TIPLOC code is "CseaH" in computerised timetable systems.

HISTORY

Calls for a station here were met in 2005 with a fully costed station and signalling at £3 million, of which £1.7 million had already been provided by Berkeley Homes Plc through its St George upmarket London-focused subsidiary, the developer of the Imperial Wharf site, leaving a funding shortfall of £1.3 million.

In October 2007, Hammersmith and Fulham
Fulham
Council announced that St George Homes had agreed to provide another £1.2 million, roughly enough to complete the project. It is also reported that the planning permission for the whole of the Imperial Wharf development was only given on the basis that a station was built.

The station secured full funding on 28 April 2008. The station opened on Sunday 27 September 2009, in a ceremony attended by the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson

The new station provides an important link for the Sands End
Sands End
area to Clapham Junction station in the south of London
London
and northwards towards Willesden Junction station. This will be particularly important as the area is further developed by both private and public organisations. This investment includes a new residential development called "The Gallery" which has been started on recently cleared land next to the Laura Ashley offices, between Bagleys Lane and Elbe Street.

There are also plans by another developer to redevelop the Lots Road Power Station , into 395 residential units. The semi-derelict building, on Chelsea Creek close to the River Thames, is a large, disused, coal-fired power station. It was designed in 1902 and completed in 1905 and until 2003 was used to provide power for London Underground . The developers had hoped to complete the redevelopment by 2013.
