Ballymore’s ‘Embassy Gardens’ scheme would provide up to 1,982 new homes alongside shops, cafes, bars, restaurants, business space, a 100 bed hotel, a health centre, children’s playgrounds and sports pitches. It would also provide more than 6 acres of new outdoor public space including a section of the Nine Elms linear park which will run the full length of the district. The development site is located to the south of Nine Elms lane and wraps around the site of the new US Embassy. As part of the scheme’s Section 106 package Ballymore has agreed to pay between £52.5mn and £55.7mn towards improving local transport and social infrastructure. The exact figure will depend on the timing of the payments and final form of the development.
