EMBASSY GARDENS BY BALLYMORE

FOREWORD Nine Elms is to undergo a spectacular and radical transformation from inner city twilight zone to shining example of world class urban redevelopment, creating a new landmark riverside district for Central London. I’m proud that our development at Embassy Gardens is to be the centrepiece of the new Nine Elms. In the course of the last twenty years, Ballymore has been involved in some of the most iconic and successful urban regeneration projects in London. In many ways, this is the most exciting and prestigious project we’ve undertaken to date. It’s an opportunity to create a unique living and working environment with a lasting impact in Central London and gives us an immense source of pride, as well as a great sense of responsibility. To find an outstanding development opportunity at the very heart of London in the twenty first century, a short walk from Westminster Abbey, is close to miraculous. This is undoubtedly the most exciting new chapter in the story of riverside London and quite possibly the last time the Capital will see the creation of such a completely new district, where none existed before.

CHAPTER ONE

The extraordinary regeneration of the South Bank

11


LIVE BY EXAMPLE

The South Bank: London’s Third City For a hundred years, the South Bank was the Capital’s central industrial district, dominated by river trade and more recently by Bankside and Battersea power stations. Although County Hall and the Royal Festival Hall were rare interventions into this industrial landscape, the closures of the power stations at Bankside in 1981 and Battersea in 1983 were the catalytic events which changed the landscape.

Sir Terry Farrell

Embassy Gardens, Masterplan Architect

EMBASSY GARDENS BY BALLYMORE

The district of Nine Elms, stretching from Vauxhall to Battersea, is the final chapter of an extraordinary regeneration story for the South Bank, London’s ‘Third City’. Bordered to the north by the river and to the south by a nineteenth century rail viaduct, and extending some eight miles from Tower Bridge to Battersea Park, this most central of locations has come alive in the last thirty years with a series of magical new hubs of urban development, social activity and world class culture.

Once completed, Nine Elms will challenge the status quo enjoyed by other Central London districts such as Kensington, Chelsea and Bayswater. In its planning and architecture, the project benefits from the visionary thinking of one of the foremost practitioners in the industry, Sir Terry Farrell, who was given the task of master-planning the regeneration of Nine Elms. In fact the word ‘regeneration’ doesn’t adequately describe the comprehensive transformation. What makes the Nine Elms opportunity so compelling and exciting is that it’s a blank canvas, a rare find in the centre of a world-leading city.

The centrepiece of the new Nine Elms district is formed by Embassy Gardens. This is where the thinking behind the masterplan finds its most eloquent expression; a place of dramatic new commercial and residential buildings set in open, fluid spaces, that lifts the spirits and creates an immediate sense of belonging. Embassy Gardens lives up to its name with thoughtfully designed and landscaped public squares, parks and gardens radiating off the Linear Park – the soft backbone running through the whole of Nine Elms. This is a place designed to be lived, worked and wandered in. 33

Drake & Morgan Drake & Morgan is a privately owned bar and restaurant group with a reputation for innovative and original interior design, with five contemporary food and drink venues across London famous for their skinny cocktails, global wines and menus of accessible, beautifully presented food, served in a friendly and professional style.

Inception Group Run by young entrepreneurs Charlie Gilkes and Duncan Stirling, Inception Group owns and operates a small group of highly individual, if not quirky venues including Barts, a speakeasy bar, Maggie’s, a 1980s nightclub, and Bunga Bunga, a bar, pizzeria and karaoke venue. They’re promising a whole new concept unique to Embassy Gardens.

Waitrose There couldn’t be a more suitable supermarket group to take up residence in Embassy Gardens than Waitrose. The reputation they enjoy for the quality and freshness of their food, and for the depth and range of their household goods, is the envy of every other retailer in the UK.

THE CAPITAL BUILDING

Distinguished Neighbour

“Nine Elms will be a prestigious destination for international investment anchored by ... the new US Embassy”. MAYOR OF LONDON’s OAPF

44


EMBASSY GARDENS BY BALLYMORE

The Design

Nine Elms could not ask for a greater seal of approval or expression of confidence than the United States Government’s decision to move here.

The decision to move the American Embassy to Nine Elms was made in 2008. US Ambassador Robert Tuttle said “This has been a long and careful process. In the end, we realized that the goal of a modern, secure and environmentally sustainable Embassy could best be met by constructing a new facility.”

The presence of the US Embassy is certain to attract other diplomatic missions to re-locate here, as well as fostering a new commercial district for corporations seeking an address that emphatically expresses their substance and status.

Architectural competition winner Kieran Timberlake’s iconic design for the new Embassy building and its surroundings gives imaginative form to the core values of the American diplomatic mission – transparency, openness, and equality – and does so in a way that is both secure and welcoming.

In that respect alone, Embassy Gardens SW8 already has all the right credentials to become as sought-after an address as Knightsbridge, Belgravia or Mayfair. 45

Architecture & Inspiration

LIVE BY EXAMPLE

48


EMBASSY GARDENS BY BALLYMORE

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 and Capital. The design is strongly influenced by the 1930s commercial buildings in Manhattan’s Union Square and Meatpacking Districts. The architecture of Embassy Gardens has a highly distinctive look, unlike anywhere else in London.

Although masonry, primarily brick, is the principal 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.

Union Square, New York City

49


50


The design of Embassy Gardens is the result of an exemplary collaboration between four world class architectural practices: Terry Farrell & Partners, Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios (winners of the Stirling Prize, 2008), Allford Hall Monaghan Morris and Arup.

The Linear Park

61


LIVE BY EXAMPLE

A key element of the overall masterplan is the Linear Park, running from Vauxhall Station (Zone 1) to the Battersea Power Station site, providing a beautiful green pedestrian avenue from Embassy Gardens to a major public transport hub.

63


LIVE BY EXAMPLE

The Linear Park borrows much from New York’s High Line, providing gathering places for play and leisure, whether active or passive, away from the traffic-laden streets. The inspiration for the Linear Park comes from New York’s magical High Line, a mile long park built on an elevated section of the former New York Central Railroad, running down the lower west side of Manhattan; it has now been reclaimed and planted as an aerial greenway which has in turn had a phenomenally positive regenerative impact upon the entire district. This is a park with a purpose, lifting pedestrian traffic from the streets below, providing an unexpectedly peaceful place right on top of a bustling city, an extraordinary and imaginative use of public space that has been much admired worldwide.

64


EMBASSY GARDENS BY BALLYMORE

As the Linear Park passes through Embassy Gardens, it becomes the central focus, with further gardens, walks and public spaces radiating from it. Communal courtyards within the building blocks provide additional private amenity space for the use of residents and their guests, with more private gardens along the courtyard edges.

While the buildings and open spaces of Embassy Gardens have an exciting, lively rhythm about them, the apartment interiors have a more restrained feel of certainty and timelessness. The aesthetic is inspired by classic 1950s American design which manifests itself through the creative use of space, materials and detailing. 87

Generous spaces and floor to ceiling windows together with materials such as marble and walnut parquet flooring quietly impart quality and class, reinforcing the sense of solidity and enduring good taste. Magnificent views of the Thames, London landmarks and beyond feature across the development.

Pan Peninsula at Canary Wharf

EMBASSY GARDENS BY BALLYMORE

To turn our vision for Embassy Gardens into a reality, it’s vitally important to keep the wider transformation of Nine Elms in mind at the same time as concentrating on the smallest details. We never forget that we’re building for people; built environments mean nothing if they don’t in some way improve, enrich or enhance people’s lives, either as residents or as visitors. If we can also create buildings that make a positive, sustainable and lasting impact on the landscape, so much the better. 139


LIVE BY EXAMPLE

OLD SPITALFIELDS MARKET LONDON Since our restoration and redevelopment of the grade 2 listed buildings at Old Spitalfields Market, it has become a lively meeting place, with thriving market stalls, shops, bars, restaurants and cafés, and it is now ranked as one of London’s top ten visitor attractions.

PROJECTS by Ballymore

PAN PENINSULA CANARY WHARF, LONDON

ONTARIO TOWER CANARY WHARF, LONDON

21 WAPPING LANE WAPPING, LONDON

Standing head and shoulders above any other residential development in London, Pan Peninsula is a fine example of how inspired thinking can rise to the occasion. Drawing inspiration from North America and South East Asia, Pan Peninsula is a spectacular building that has become an outstanding London landmark.

Rising 30 storeys above the river, with spectacular 360 degree views over London, Ontario Tower is already regarded as a landmark of the London Skyline. The residential tower is designed by the same architects who created the Sears Tower in Chicago, the masterplan for Hong Kong harbour and Canary Wharf itself.

Our development at 21 Wapping Lane is an entirely modern intervention in one of London’s oldest village settlements, designed to offer primarily residential accommodation, but also retail, leisure and recreation facilities. It brings a new interpretation to riverside life with an injection of bright urban vitality.

ST. JOHN’S WESTMINSTER, LONDON

SNOWHILL BIRMINGHAM

EUROVEA SLOVAKIA

Arranged around the ancient gardens of St John’s in Westminster, this is an award-winning development of superior apartments close to the Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey. Originally of Neo-Georgian brick and stone construction, St John’s is a blend of contemporary style with traditional build quality.

From the outset, our plans for Snowhill were ambitious. We were planning both the largest commercial leasing and the tallest residential tower in Britain, outside of London. Phase 1 was fully occupied in just four years, enhancing Birmingham’s position as Britain’s second city.

Sitting on the banks of the Danube in the Slovakian capital, Eurovea is a 400,000 sq.m mixed-use river front development of residential, retail, hotel and office accommodation, adjacent to the historic city centre. With a new public square and a landscaped riverside park, Bratislava has gained a modern, urban sophistication.

HIGH POINT VILLAGE HAYES, LONDON

NEW PROVIDENCE WHARF LONDON

BEAUX ARTS BUILDING LONDON

High Point Village offers everything you’d expect from a new, urban quarter within easy reach of Heathrow, Paddington, the City and Canary Wharf. It has been designed to offer an oasis of calm in an otherwise driven world, giving its residents a sense of community often lacking in more anonymous city developments.

New Providence Wharf, including the Ontario Tower and the Providence Tower, stretches back some 400m from the river, with a depth and a substance few other riverside developments have achieved. It has received worldwide acclaim as a fine example of residential, hotel, retail and leisure development.

An award-winning development of 180 loft apartments and penthouses. Originally built in 1909, the Beaux Arts Building has been transformed to offer a range of unique luxury loft apartments and duplex penthouses with a grand exquisitely detailed foyer to the monumental façade.

The manner in which people inhabit the land and the marks upon it which result are the raw materials of landscape architecture. Camlins interpret this behaviour and use it to achieve fluency in the language of landscape. Having deciphered the code or sequence of signals bequeathed by nature and the land’s former inhabitants, contemporary marks may then be made with conviction. Camlins were appointed by CABE in 2003 to act as nominated advisors to local authorities in whose stewardship our landscape and public realm reside.
