Embassy Gardens T

he new American Embassy building, affectionately known in London as the ‘sugar cube,’ is fast becoming a reality as progress continues to be made on one of the capital’s newest landmarks. Situated in the heart of the Nine Elms regeneration zone, the 12 storey, $1 billion glass cube will be home to 1,000 staff and covers 45,000 square metres. With the building due to complete next year, hundreds of embassy workers will be looking to relocate to one of London’s largest new districts which will provide 18,000 new homes. JOHNS&CO, preferred agent of developers around the capital, is looking after the lease of more than 50 two bedroom apartments in Embassy Gardens, the centre piece and jewel in the crown of the Nine Elms rejuvenation programme. The apartments are all finished to an exceptionally high specification, but what sets them apart from


The American

neighbouring developments is the standard of the additional facilities available on-site. The range and quality is unrivalled with amenities including a state-of-the-art residents only health club and leisure complex, a cinema, an indoor/outdoor pool as well as a 24 hour hotelstyle concierge and valet service. In addition to the superb facilities, there is also a range of amenities that distinguish it from similar developments in the area. The 10,000 sq ft Waitrose store with internal sushi bar is a huge draw for residents in the area, as well as highlighting the quality of the development, in addition to an organic delicatessen and a range of independent bars, cafes and restaurants nearby. Apartments here are the perfect choice for workers relocating to the new embassy building. Rental prices remain pleasantly affordable and are in line with neighbouring products both in the immediate area and in the wider south west London

riverside developments, despite the fact that the facilities and amenities are of a different calibre. Furthermore, JOHNS&CO ensures the move in process is as seamless as possible and many of the apartments come fully furnished, further removing the stress and hassle from finding a new home. Renting at the development could also provide the perfect opportunity for some to ‘try before they buy.’ Long term leases are encouraged, thereby allowing residents the opportunity to get to know the area before deciding whether they would like to buy a more permanent base. JOHNS&CO looks after both sales and lettings at the development. Properties are available to buy and to rent through JOHNS&CO Nine Elms with prices starting at £950,000 or £600 per week for a two bedroom apartment.
