A new US Embassy for London

This site has been created on behalf of the U.S. Department of State and its team to provide information on the proposed relocation of the U.S. Embassy in London from Grosvenor Square, Mayfair to Nine Elms, Battersea.

Latest update:

Following extensive consultation with local residents and stakeholders, outline planning permission was granted by Wandsworth Council for the site of the new U.S. Embassy in Nine Elms in September 2009.

In parallel to the planning process, a design competition, led by a jury made up of leaders in the fields of architecture, diplomacy, sustainable building, urban design and regeneration, has been underway in the U.S. to appoint an architect to lead on the design of the new Embassy. The final four shortlisted practices recently made their concluding presentations to the jury, and we pleased to announce that KieranTimberlake has now been appointed to design the new Embassy building.

To allow the people of London to find out more about the design competition and the winning team a public exhibition will be held at the NLA (London’s centre for the built environment) at The Building Centre, 26 Store Street, London WC1E 7BT, between Friday 26 February and Saturday 20 March 2010.
