Cor that embassy is going to be big, you could run a small country from it.
Their current embassy in Grosvenor square is looking very tired and the security barriers there look pretty naff and temporary.
Its kind of like a modern day castle with a moat to stop car bombers.
Good stuff.

Thanks Quicksilver, sorry to put a dampener on your reply. It's very hard to correct people that willfully wallow in ignorance.

Looking to the brochures of these buildings in their websites is unhealthy

Architecturally, each side is different, so you may like one of them

As a project overall, it'll certainly stand out in that part of Fitzrovia.
