Apartments in Albert Embankment SE1

Albert Embankment, like neighbouring Nine Elms, is currently experiencing a whirlwind of residential redevelopment. As part of central London’s latest area of regeneration, Albert Embankment sits along the South Bank of the Thames, stretching from Lambeth Bridge down to Vauxhall Bridge. The area is home to many developments including Parliament View, 9 Albert Embankment (Salamanca Square) and Peninsula Heights (with many more currently under construction). Albert Embankment is quickly becoming one of central London’s most sought-after residential destinations. Parliament View typifies all it means to live on the Albert Embankment; with its stunning curved glass façade and all-encompassing views of the Thames and Houses of Parliament, Parliament View is a fantastic development for both investors and residents alike. 

Perfectly situated to accommodate residents of all tastes and requirements, Albert Embankment is located close to both Vauxhall, renowned for its energetic nightlife, and Westminster, an area steeped in history.   Albert Embankment offers an array of extra-curricular opportunities, including bars, nightclubs, gyms and restaurants. With so much in the immediate area, it’s a further blessing that the area is just a short train ride from London’s famous West End and the fabled cobbled streets of Covent Garden.

Having sold and let property on the Albert Embankment for the last ten years, MyLondonHome have a real affinity with the area, which means we are excited as anyone about the arrival of brand new developments such as The Corniche, Parliament House and the Merano Residences.

History

Home to Lambeth Palace, the residence of the Archbishop of Canterbury since the 13th century, Albert Embankment is steeped in a rich history. The Metropolitan Board of Works) led by Sir Joseph Bazalgette created the Albert Embankment in 1866. Now neighbouring the International Maritime Organisation and close by to the Secret Intelligence Service building, the Albert Embankment used to  be home to the former headquarters  of the London Fire Brigade. It now sits just across the Thames from London’s only river fire station. Originally intended to prevent low level areas of Lambeth from flooding, Albert Embankment has gone on to form one of central London’s residential hotspots. 

9 Albert Embankment (Salamanca Square) has a particularly interesting past. A combination of both office conversions and Berkeley Homes new build apartments, 9 Albert Embankment was at one time home to the iconic 1960’s record label, Decca Records: now infamous for turning down the chance to sign The Beatles. Decca bosses are famously quoted as saying ‘four-piece groups with guitars are particularly finished’; they’ve since gone on to sell over a billion records.  The development sits opposite to the former Doulton Pottery Factory (now converted to offices) possibly one of the finest examples of ornate, terracotta works in central London.
