For the last two centuries, Belgravia has been the diplomatic heartland of the capital - but the centre of gravity is now shifting to Nine Elms with the arrival of the US, Dutch and Chinese embassies.
The development includes the Linear Park, an ambitious landscape project, inspired by New York’s HighLine, that will stretch from Battersea to Vauxhall. It passes right through Embassy Gardens and forms a key aspect of the identity for scheme.

Smith Dawson was responsible for the original place-making strategy, the naming of the scheme and support throughout the planning application process.
