New U.S. Embassy in Nine Elms, London
Slated for completion in late 2016, the new U.S. Embassy in the Nine Elms area of Wandsworth is a current project that will produce a modern, welcoming, safe, and energy efficient embassy for the 21st century.
The design of the new facility was opened up to competition and Philadelphia-based architects, Kieran Timberlake, earned the winning design in 2013.
The New London Embassy (NLE) is under the care of the Overseas Buildings Operations with a dedicated team based in London. The project is entirely funded by the proceeds of sales of other U.S. Government properties in London, not through appropriated funds.
“We are proud to be putting down roots in Nine Elms. And we’re proud to provide an anchor for more businesses and jobs, bringing thousands of new neighbors to fuel economic revitalization here.” (Ambassador Barzun, U.S. Ambassador to the U.K. at the groundbreaking ceremony).
