No question putting your public space requirement up on an inaccessible office building terrace is shitty behaviour — as if we expect any other sort from real estate developers — but almost half of these aren’t “hidden” at all, they’re easily accessible from the street.

I am 99.99% sure they’re all Portals in Ingress.
