[LONDON: 3rd June 2017]: On 3rd June 2017, 25 apartments will be released for sale overlooking the world famous Sky Pool at their landmark Embassy Gardens development. The new one and two bedroom homes, located on the 10th floor or higher, offer residents luxury living in the heart of the Nine Elms regeneration area, with prices starting from £1million. As part of the launch, a number of garden apartments will also be available for purchase, starting from £650,000.
Overlooking the pool deck, the signature apartments will take full advantage of the iconic Embassy Gardens Sky Pool - a world-first in swimming pool design. The pool is entirely transparent and structure free, 25m long, 5m wide and 3m deep with a water depth of 1.2m. Designed by Arup Associates, with specialist input from Eckersley O’Callaghan and aquarium designers Reynolds, the experience is intended to replicate that of an aquarium, providing a totally unique view of the capital. At 10 storeys high, the pool links two residential buildings and allows residents to swim from one building to the next.
A private sky-deck will sit atop the two buildings, providing an enviable vantage point and incorporating a spa, summer bar and Orangery where residents can relax and take in views of London’s iconic skyline. Health and wellbeing are central to the development; apartments are designed to provide a tranquil and relaxing living environment and a variety of green and open spaces across the development include intimate garden squares and a private ravine. All communal areas will be beautifully landscaped, incorporating wildflowers and foliage to create a place of respite for residents.
The ground floor green spaces sit within the new linear park, which will form a green ribbon for the area, linking Vauxhall to Battersea Park via Embassy Garden’s Union Square. The development is just a 10 minute walk from Vauxhall Station providing prime connectivity with the capital and beyond. Transport links will undergo further improvement with the extension of the Northern Line, which will see the opening of two new stations at Nine Elms and Battersea Power Station.
In total the development will provide nearly 2,000 new homes for Londoners and the first phase of the development is already complete and occupied. The homes are designed with an ethos of craftsmanship at their core, with interior details handcrafted from high quality materials such as light-coloured oak, marble and black granite. 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 creates a sense of space.
Residents will become members of the EG:LE club, an exclusive private members club which raises the bar on residential development amenities in London. The completed facilities include a private screening room, gym, yoga studio, therapy room, traditional library, lounge area and business suite – when complete residents will also have access to the world famous Sky Pool.
Sean Mulryan, CEO of Ballymore, said “The Sky Pool was an ambitious vision and one that has been an exciting challenge for our team of engineers, architects, designers and manufacturers to bring to life. We are looking forward to that vision becoming a reality; as the supporting buildings structures will be complete in a matter of weeks, and the pool structure is due to arrive on site at the end of the year. This will be an iconic piece infrastructure which has already generated extensive interest around the globe, and will set new standards in design.”
