Former U.S. Embassy, Grosvenor Square.

Redevelopment pictured October 2020.


The United States Embassy was synonymous with Grosvenor Square until recently. The building closed in 2018 and moved to a new site in Nine Elms.

I have visited the site every few months to see how work is progressing. At the moment just the front shell and side walls of the building are left as is common to many developments in the city, where the building is all but knocked down and a facade (literally) of the original remains.
