The Perks Planned for Google’s Giant New London Offices

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...london-offices

Quote:
Longer than the European Union's highest building is tall, staff working in Google's planned new U.K. headquarters will have no excuse not to keep fit.

The proposals, submitted by Google U.K. and its developers to Camden Council this week, include a 200 meter long "Trim Trail" on the roof, a three-lane swimming pool, massage rooms, a host of exercise studios and a games area for basketball, five-a-side soccer or badminton.

They are calling Google's project "Landscraper" because it is longer then the Shrad is tall.
