    Oh, I wonder if that's the latest building that I noticed the other night. Looked out the window and a new lit up building seemed to have suddenly appeared from nowhere :hmm:

    Oh so that's what it is going to be. I drive past there everyday. Me thinks that Nine Elms lane is going to become a lot busier in years to come.

    Well it will be, 'cos that's where they're building the new American Embassy isn't it?

    I would like it if it wasn't for the 1970s style concrete pillars propping it up.

    If you walk down the Albert Embankment towards it there are usually a few visible. They have also put some sort of cladding on the bottom bit which makes it look oddly translucent, at least in the early morning.

    I noticed it this morning for the first time (I work across the river in Pimlico) and wondered what it was!

    It is proper ugly. So blends in quite nicely with the area.

    Prices start at £700,000 and go up to £60,000,000 apparently.

    does it have parking spaces? It goes on & on about how sustainable it is but the last thing Vauxhall needs is more traffic. website

    It goes on about car clubs but if it has 200 parking spaces underneath they'll get used.

    Theres a massive - and stupidly expensive - car park under the entire complex.

    Not sure what's happening with Market Towers the beige and brown building opposite which at 21 floors is now dwarfed. From what I hear it's now empty and looks very dated next to St George's tower.

    maldwyn What?

    I suppose being close to the new American embassy will up the prices, but who would pay £60 million to live in Vauxhall? :D

    Not sure living close to two of the biggest terrorist targets in Britain (MI6 and the American embassy) is something potential buyers would look in a positive way tbh :p

    I think anyone living there is sufficiently divorced from reality that they don't care.
