The United States Government has contracted U.S.-based Caddell Construction to renovate and rehabilitate the historic U.S. Embassy “Chancery” building, designed by Walter Gropius, and inaugurated on July 4, 1961. This large scale project is expected to take approximately five years. During construction, the park area along Gelonos Street will be closed to the public. The U.S. Embassy has pledged to return the area to our neighbors in excellent condition. We appreciate your understanding as we rehabilitate an important neighborhood landmark.
