Embassy Gardens is a new Thames-side development in Battersea – next to the famous power station – which is made up of about 2,000 homes.
Developers Ballymore and Eco World unveiled plans today for the breathtaking suspended swimming pool which will join the two blocks.
The 25-metre long Sky Pool will be completely transparent and entirely free of any support in the middle as it towers a terrifying 10-storeys – 115ft – above ground.
Embassy Gardens, Nine Elms, London, UK
There are few development opportunities left in London that can offer the sheer scope of the Nine Elms site in Battersea. With the US government building their new embassy on 5 acres, we are developing the retained 15 acres and plan a bold 21st century mixed use development, drawing inspiration from the attractive residential and commercial estates which evolved over time in cities like New York and Boston – not inappropriate, we feel, as the new US embassy quarter will be a close neighbour. This will be a highly collaborative effort, calling for delicate and imaginative management of several different architect partnerships to create an entirely new district that Londoners can be proud of.
