Wrong forum... This is not Trip Advisor, sorry. Lol

I can't prove it, it's just my opinion. I agree with Loyalist - even if they don't read the forum, the fact we encourage one another to write letters to the MoL's office (and the striking similarities between comments here and the mayor's letter of objection) means that it's certainly possible the forum has indirectly had an impact. I think many people here underestimate the potential we have, who knows who's reading it?...

Where's the official evidence that this building has reverted to the earlier height/top? Union Man said it (with a wink) on April 26. How did he know? You all seem to think that it's final but I haven't seen anything to confirm this. Has Lipton/PLP/Brookfield/the London Mayor or whoever issued a press release?

Brookfield have a contract to build the original design and that is what they are doing. Until they are told otherwise this remains the case, particularly as there is no other scheme at the moment as the flat top one has been withdrawn.

As far as construction is concerned it will take well into next year by the time they are at the point where the top quarter is constructed so they still have time to come up with Plan C.

Not sure what they are doing with the cranes on this job. The Liebherr crane section on the left now have Favco sections from the top brace. And from this post posted by Potto on 100 Bishopgate, they seem to have sourced another Favco crane. You can tell by the drivers cab which seems to have come from a much older model Favco. Or they've done a bit of mix and match. Anyway nice to see some Aussie cranes in London.

I think they are just taking their time removing the liebherr. Liebherr sections look similar with that triangular bracing. I had noticed that about the cab on the crane at the back. Actually think its a new style cab. Strange though the fleet number written on the side of the cab is the same as the one that was taken down. Maybe same crane with upgraded cab. Strange then they didn't do that with the ones on the cores

This is a different question from the last one you made.

Did they not state though when they withdrew the flat top that it was their intention to submit another proposal?

Hi abc
four Favco cranes were purchased for this project many years ago, two 32T core climbers and two 50T external cranes electric powered. I think these must be the four original cranes.

As far as I'm aware, that was an assumption by many/most on this thread, without any evidence to suggest that might be true.
