It’s the perfect weather for it today, but anyone wanting to relax and enjoy the views from this stunning office roof garden will have to wait until spring 2016.
Lucky office workers will be able to see stunning views of Buckingham Palace, St James’ Park and across central London from six, yes six, roof gardens being built at the Verde SW1 development in Victoria.
The outdoor space will make up 20,000 of the 282,000 square foot of office space spread over 11 storeys, with terraces on each level from the sixth to the eleventh floor.
Could the development attract business HQs away from the City? With those views on offer, frankly, who wouldn’t be tempted?
Developers Tishman Speyer, which is calling it a park in the sky, says the building is designed to attract the “next big company HQ”.
Managing director Dan Nicholson says “With a statement new glass façade and six dramatic roof gardens, we are creating a 21st century workplace, designed with the wellbeing of workers and productive business in mind.”
City workers will have fingers crossed that their company is eyeing a change of location.
Here's what those six roof gardens will look like. Bring on summer 2016.
