The application was approved on 28 May 2008. In July 2011 the proposed height was increased by seven metres to 172 metres.
It's been said that it's meant to reach the height of the 'shoulders' of Tower 42. I think there was an earlier design that was taller, subsequently reduced, and then pushed back up a little to 172m.

Glad they're building something there, as the gap/hole that is there currently (along with the pinnacle site) makes Bishopsgate pretty ugly. It's a shame it's not a bit taller (over 200m would give it more soar and presence) and it's a shame that the lower building's roof is not a bit greener with some sort of roof terrace/trees and maybe a restaurant or bar a la Coq d'Argent at 1 Poultry rather than ugly a/c vents and structures.

Looks like they're doing top-down construction to save time, just like the Shard

Really? Are there more details of the original version?
