Google's New London HQ to Have a Basketball Court and Roof Trail


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 (656 feet) 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. Less energetic workers can watch the sports from a diagonal staircase that will double as a seating area and cut through the building’s 11 stories before emerging onto a roof garden.

The 1 million-square-foot building will form a campus alongside the technology company’s existing offices in the King’s Cross district.
