The new American Embassy

The United States is building a new Embassy in London!  Beginning in 2008 when they announced the purchase of a site, previously Jack Barclay the Rolls Royce dealership had occupied the land and premises. The Nine Elms area of Wandsworth, this is a process that will produce a modern, welcoming, safe and energy efficient embassy for the 21st century.

The design was opened up to competition to ensure the new facility reflects the best of modern design, incorporates the latest in energy-efficient building techniques, and celebrates the values of freedom and democracy.

The New London Embassy (NLE), is under the care of the Overseas Buildings Operations (OBO) who now has a dedicated team based in London. The project has been funded entirely by the proceeds of the sale of other U.S. Government properties in London, not through appropriated funds.
