I'm shocked and surprised that so many on here fell for Land Securities BS.
Yeah weren't they those chancers that proposed that open to the public roof terrace at One New Change and you know how that turned out don't ya.
The roof gardens have a dedicated lift separate from the offices and it is a planning condition for there to be public access. It will not be 100% access all of the time and that I imagine why CW have had LS redesign is to make it more agreeable to those wishing to hire the venue in the evenings.
Still its a cop out from the original plans but once you get CWG onboard thats what they do.
