Now’s the Time to Buy a New Apartment at Embassy Gardens, London’s Hottest Residential Development

Posted in Sponsored Content

Who cares about Brexit? Despite widespread uncertainty regarding the UK’s future departure from the European Union, London’s luxury property market has remained resilient, with prices continuing to rise and new high-end developments opening all over the British capital. London’s most ambitious and exciting property development of the moment is none other than Embassy Gardens, an expansive 15-acre riverside project on the South Bank of the River Thames that’s anchored by the new U.S. Embassy. 

Located in the fast-transforming Nine Elms district, home to the iconic Battersea Power Station, Embassy Gardens is a landmark development which, when completed, will include nearly 2,000 new homes, stunningly landscaped gardens, offices and flexible work spaces, leisure facilities, and 130,000 square feet of bar, restaurant and retail space, including a new Waitrose supermarket. In addition to being the final chapter in the remarkable story of the South Bank’s revitalisation, Nine Elms will also become better connected to the rest of the city with the extension of the London Underground’s Nothern line to include stations at Nine Elms and Battersea.

Opening in three phases, Embassy Gardens has just completed its second phase (also known as the Legacy Buildings), which means that developer EcoWorld Ballymore is set to release a new collection of 2-bedroom apartments in Legacy 1 and Legacy 3, two buildings that overlook the US Embassy and the meticulously landscaped gardens in Embassy Square. Fortunately for Hong Kong buyers, the launch of these new apartments will take place during a two-day exhibition (16 and 17 November 2019) held at Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong. 

Both standing 22 storeys tall, Legacy 1 and Legacy have an architectural feature you won’t find anywhere else: the Sky Pool, a world-first in swimming pool design that connects the two buildings on the 10th storey. The interiors are just as impressive, having been designed by Benningen Lloyd and Luis Bustamente to offer residents the best in contemporary luxury living. 

Inspired by Soho lofts, the new 2-bedroom apartments coming to market feature an open-plan design that maximises space and makes the most of the natural that light that comes in through the floor-to-ceiling windows. Light-coloured oak, marble worktops, black granite, luxurious leather, richly woven fabrics, polished steel and handcrafted Spanish porcelain tiles and amongst the beautiful materials used throughout each apartment. 

Being a 21st-century luxury development, Embassy Gardens offers residents a dazzling assortment of amenities: the Eg:le Club, a private residents’ club for work, relaxation and entertaining; a rooftop bar with breathtaking views; a private gym with a yoga studio, boxing ring, and top-tier equipment; a business centre with two dedicated meeting rooms; a full-service health spa; a private cinema and more. Robin Gill, Good Food Guide Chef of the Year, is behind not one but two restaurants here: Darby’s, a ground-floor eatery focussed on immersive Irish cuisine; and a forthcoming 10-floor restaurant exclusively open to residents.

All this is in addition to Embassy Gardens’ ample dining, shopping and entertainment options, proving that this development is fast becoming a dynamic hub of London and a community in its own right. With its combination of great design, incredible amenities, beautiful green spaces and so much more, this wonderfully rejuvenated district is shaping up to be one of the most desirable places to live in London, one that’s worthy of your consideration whether you’re seeking a pied-a-terre or a permanent relocation.

If you’re interested to learn more about Embassy Gardens, be sure to attend the upcoming exhibition on 16 & 17 November 2019 from 11am-7pm at Edinburgh Room, 2/F, Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong, 5 Connaught Road Central, Hong Kong.
