Sitting above the new Crossrail station at Canary Wharf, the Crossrail Place Roof Garden designed by Foster + Partners, opened to the public in 2015.

The planting selected for the gardens is intended to reference the area's maritime heritage. Many of the chosen species are indigenous to countries visited during the 19th century by trading ships that used the three docks built in the area by the West India Dock Company trading group.
