The relocation of the American Embassy from Grosvenor Square to Nine Elms in 2016, along with Embassy Gardens, will mean that Nine Elms will challenge the status quo enjoyed for so long by many other Central London districts such as Kensington, Chelsea and Bayswater for example. In its planning and architecture the project benefits from the visionary thinking of one of the foremost practitioners in the industry, Sir Terry Farrell.
The district of Nine Elms, stretching from Vauxhall to Battersea, is the final chapter of an extraordinary regeneration story for the South Bank. This most central of locations has come alive in the last thirty years with a series of new hubs of urban development and social activity.
The most striking feature of the proposed apartment buildings in Embassy Gardens is their variety of style, size and character: it's even suggested in their building names - Ambassador, Capital and Chancery. The designs are strongly influenced by the commercial buildings of the 1930s in Manhattan's Meatpacking District. The architecture of Embassy Gardens has a highly distinctive look, unlike anywhere else in London. Although masonry, primarily brick, is the principle building material, it has been given a new treatment that suggests traditional built-to-last qualities of permanence and solidity, together with a lightness of touch that might be expected in an exciting new, twenty first century urban development.
Embassy Gardens provides a mix of Suites, one, two and three bedroom apartments and penthouses as well as a broad array of leisure and retail amenities. The interiors boast high ceilings, walnut parquet flooring, marble countertops in the kitchens and thermostatically controlled comfort cooling and heating. Almost all apartments have either a balcony or a winter garden, and some apartments have both.
For the residents' private use there will be 24 hour concierge, valet parking, cinema, library & lounge, business centre, yoga studio, gymnasium and stunning indoor/outdoor pools.
A key element of the overall masterplan for Nine Elms is the Linear Park, running from Vauxhall Bridge to the Battersea Power Station site, providing a sustainable green backbone to the new quarter.
New Union Square is a place designed with people in mind, it is a rich mix of restaurants, bars and cafes, hotels, shops and enterprising businesses that promise the neighbourhood a lively, busy street life with the cosmopolitan feel London has become famous for.
Embassy Gardens will be home to two new establishments by Drake & Morgan and Inception Group who have enjoyed previous success with Bunga Bunga and Maggie's. Waitrose will also be opening a new store within the development.
The Embassy Gardens Marketing Suite is located on the junction of Ponton Road and Nine Elms Lane, SW8. Viewings are strictly appointment only.
