EcoWorld Ballymore has released 251 properties for sale at Embassy Gardens, the residential development adjacent to the new US Embassy at the heart of Nine Elms on London’s South Bank. In addition Ballymore announces the opening of the EG:LE club in the Ambassador Building, which is now complete and 95% occupied.
Ranging from studio suites to the stunning penthouse, the apartments launched offer buyers another opportunity to purchase in this stand-out development. Phase one was launched to great acclaim in 2012 and phase two, launched towards the end of 2015, is already sold out.
The design of Embassy Gardens is inspired by the red-brick exteriors of the Meatpacking District of New York, and influenced by London’s historic Victorian and Edwardian mansion blocks. At the heart of Embassy Gardens’ ethos is craftsmanship, with interior details handcrafted from high quality materials such as light-coloured oak, marble and black granite. Spanish designer Luis Bustamante and Sean Mulryan, Chairman of Ballymore Group, collaboratively devised the interior design of the apartments, each one given individual consideration. Taking influence from Soho-loft style living and ensuring high quality finishes in every apartment, natural light will flood the apartments through floor to ceiling glass windows and open plan design creating a sense of space. Many also have striking views across the River Thames or the new US Embassy.
Embassy Gardens is set within the linear park - a ribbon of green, tree-lined space running from Vauxhall to Battersea Park, providing al fresco areas for residents and locals to enjoy. The park will include a variety of trees thoughtfully planted to evolve and change with the seasons. Providing an artistic focal point to this beautifully landscaped space are three recently unveiled sculptures, curated by Sir Norman Rosenthal and Ballymore. Including works by Sarah Lucas, Simon Fujiwara and Mohammed Ashfaq, the new artworks inject cultural vibrancy into Embassy Gardens and the surrounding area.
One of the leading developments in Nine Elms on the South Bank, Europe’s most significant regeneration zone stretching from Lambeth Bridge to Chelsea Bridge, Embassy Gardens will benefit from the £15 billion regeneration which will transform almost 500 acres of underused land into a thriving new area within central London, boasting 6.5m sq ft of commercial space, 20,000 new homes, infrastructure, and community amenities. Embassy Gardens will sit adjacent to the new US Embassy and the Dutch Embassy – both of which are relocating to the area.
Nine Elms will be one of London’s best-connected neighbourhoods; the extension to the Northern line will be open by 2020, while Vauxhall underground and overground rail stations are just a five minute walk away from Embassy Gardens. A planned pedestrian and cycle bridge will improve links to the north bank of the river, connecting residents to Belgravia and Pimlico in minutes.
