Wow! I love this garden in Canary Wharf!  Crossrail Place was designed by Foster & Partners and the Roof Garden opened in 2015. Since then the garden has developed into a peaceful, lush space filled with beautiful ferns, grasses and various flowering shrubs and perennials. The garden was designed by Gillespies
