Embassy Gardens is at the heart of Nine Elms, the central London riverside neighbourhood whose revitalisation, masterplanned by Sir Terry Farrell, has been described by the former Mayor of London as ‘possibly the most important regeneration story in London and in the UK over the next 20 years’. The architectural style is distinctive, with apartments standing among landscaped public squares, parks and spectacular gardens. Amenities of the highest standard include the private Eg:le club with its own library and gym, the world-famous Sky Pool, as well as a spa, cinema and business facilities.

“The architectural style is distinctive, with apartments standing among landscaped public squares, parks and spectacular gardens.”

With the relocation of the US Embassy to the area, directly across the river from Pimlico, and the nearby regeneration of Battersea Power Station, Embassy Gardens is the centrepiece of the last great new district in the centre of London. It set record sales values during phase one, and the second phase is set to deliver even further value growth. The project as a whole will include 1,555 new homes and over 40,000 sq m of office and flexible workspace spread over eight building plots rising up to 23 storeys in height. One Embassy Gardens,  a 215,000 sq ft office building completed in 2019, was designed by Lee Polisano of PLP Architects.  It has exceptional commercial space over 10 floors and a unique west facing roof terrace and winter gardens with spectacular views over the River Thames and central London. Tenants include Penguin Random House UK and Dorling Kindersley.

Riverside – the building formerly known as EG:HQ – will start onsite this year at Embassy Gardens, creating one of London’s most sustainable commercial properties. Morris+Company's reworked design of the  213,000 sq ft building focuses on creating spaces specifically with the end users in mind. This means creating a sustainable structure which will help businesses offer their colleagues an enhanced occupier experience; our 15-storey building will target the highest sustainability ratings, including BREEAM Outstanding, an EPC A certification and a five-star NABERS energy-efficiency rating.

“We must help businesses appeal to a more sophisticated and environmentally conscious colleague. At Riverside, that means adaptable spaces that will accommodate hybrid working models and feature outdoor spaces totalling 17,500 sq ft, over six external terraces – all boasting incredible views of the River Thames. There’s storage for 339 bikes and an onsite cycle workshop too."

Other improvements include smart building management systems, reducing the operation energy use; as well as rainwater harvesting; flood attenuation; low energy lighting; and systems to decrease water consumption throughout the building’s toilets, taps and showers. Carbon emissions will also be reduced through reference to Environmental Product Declarations, which show the environmental performance or impact of materials.
