US embassy gets planning consent for London office
Outline planning consent has been given by Wandsworth Council for a new 550,000 sq ft property, to be located on the south bank of the River Thames. Consent has reportedly been agreed based on a contribution towards transport in the area.
The new ┬ú500m US embassy has yet to secure an architect – this will be decided following a competition between four US-based architectural practices.
According to Property Week, planning applications chairman Leslie McDonnell said:
“We are delighted that this scheme is moving forward. It promises to kick start the wider regeneration of this part of north Battersea and encourage further development on other sites in the area.”
She added: “There is a lot of detail still to be resolved. Most of this will become clear once the winning design has been chosen.”
