9 Albert Embankment, an Overview
Forming part of the impressive Salamanca Square complex developed by Berkeley homes in 2000, 9 Albert Embankment sits directly facing the river Thames offering fantastic cityscape views from many of its apartments.
Decca records originally commissioned the building as their head office in the company’s heyday. Berkeley Homes undertook the redevelopment in 2000 adding a number of additional floors and creating a vibrant mix of one, two and three bedroom flats with a high specification finish.
A History of 9 Albert Embankment
9 Albert Embankment was originally built in the 1960’s and was home to the iconic Decca Records label. Rather unfortunately Decca Records are often cited as being the label that turned down the Beatles. However Decca did sign up a great number of many successful artists including the UK’s answer to Elvis Presley, Tommy Steele.
Tommy Steele somewhat made up for Decca’s missed opportunity by creating a well-respected sculpture entitled ‘Eleanor Rigby’ after the famous Beatles song, which is still in situ on Stanley Street in Liverpool. Steele perhaps even more surprisingly is the creator of a famous sculpture in Twickenham Rugby Stadium of two rugby players. (Incidentally, Twickenham is easily accessed from Albert Embankment as trains run direct from Vauxhall Station.)
Perhaps less iconically, Decca sold the building to the reluctantly privatised British Steel company which was then bought out by Tata and the building sold for redevelopment. However there are no weak links in this development as it has firmly established itself as part of the ongoing regeneration of the Albert Embankment and the surrounding area.
