South Bank is one of the most prestigious locations in the capital. Home to the Mayor of London’s City Hall, the Tate Modern and Shakespeare’s Globe, it’s become synonymous with culture, entertainment and enterprise.
For many, Embassy Garden marks the final stages of the area’s extensive regeneration journey – emphasising just how far the area has come. Here’s more information.
South Bank’s History
The Thames’s South Bank may be one of the city’s most illustrious zones, but travel back in time and it was a very different story.
Hundreds of years ago it was an inaccessible marshland, which was only visited by ferrymen. However, as the Industrial Revolution took hold of the city, South Bank began to change, as wharves, leadworks and tanneries took over the region.
This industrial atmosphere pervaded until the 1950s, when the Festival of Britain brought new architecture and technology into the area. Finally, the South Bank that we know and love was born. In more recent years, its undergone extensive regeneration, and is now home to numerous restaurants, bars, pubs, shops and cultural attractions.
Attracting Buyers Worldwide
Embassy Gardens is at the heart of the Nine Elms area, one of the capital’s most significant regeneration projects. Made up of over 40 developments, this historic area (named after the trees that once stood there) has changed the face of the riverfront and created high-end accommodation for hundreds of residents.
With two new underground tube stations coming to the area shortly, connecting Embassy Gardens directly to London Bridge, Bank, Waterloo and Leicester Square, it’s little wonder that the development is getting so much attention from investors in the UK and abroad.
A City Within a City
Embassy Gardens has been designed with a focus on lifestyle. Of course, residents live in close proximity to many of London’s cultural hotspots, and getting out and about couldn’t be easier. However, if they choose to spend the weekend relaxing at home, they can enjoy the following amenities:
- Exclusive access to the Sky Deck. Eg:le members can freely use the Sky Deck, where they’ll find the Sky Pool and Orangery Restaurant. With loungers beside the pool and an elegant bar, it’s the ideal place to relax and unwind.
- A private cinema. The Maureen O’Hara Cinema shows the latest movies and sporting events and can be rented for private viewings if required.
- The Belmont Pool. The development’s second pool is ideal for swimming laps, or alternatively, residents can work out in the Belmont Gym.
- The Beckett Lounge. This relaxed communal lounge acts as a social area or working zone, with a bar serving beverages throughout the day.
The apartments at Embassy Gardens mirror the ethos of South Bank; progressive, yet with a sense of traditionalism. Created by EcoWorld and Ballymore, two of the world’s most innovative developers, they feature custom-designed modular kitchens, semi-freestanding bath tubs, wooden flooring, energy efficient lighting and generous outdoor space, with views of the US Embassy, the Sky Pool or one of the landscaped garden squares below.
With such meticulous attention to detail, not to mention style, it’s clear to see that Embassy Gardens marks the perfect finishing touch to South Bank’s regeneration.
