The flat topped design that I posted is the final design. It's simple but very elegant. You can see Tower 42's reflection in its facade.

The flat topped design was withdrawn a few days ago by the developers. The stepped design is the one currently being built (although the developers may resubmit a new design).

Pretty sure it's not. The older posters have noted in the London forum that the older taller design is to be built. Of course it's all still very confusing.

The flat-topped design is no longer being built. They are progressing with the 278-metre stepped design, unless a new design is submitted.

They appear to be very close to each other, other than that, they all look like buildings of great sophistication and quality.

The flat topped design that I posted is what will rise.

The shorter scheme was adopted due to aviation concerns.

This building never ceases to cause confusion. You might find that the situation has changed since that article.

Haha yep!! The article was the beginning of March, and the withdrawal letter was the middle of April.

The tower was shortened due to aviation concerns.

The shorter, flat topped version is what's rising.

And that article was from December. They don't have planning permission for the flat topped one and have since removed the application.

That is incorrect.

This is the version being built now.

CharlesSwann, I even posted the letter showing evidence that the flat-topped design had been withdrawn (see post #2365)... Did you ignore it when you stated, once again, that the shorter flat-topped version is the one that's rising?

I will explain. The step-topped 278m version is the only one with planning permission, and therefore, that is what they are currently building. The flat-topped 255m version was submitted and "approved" by the City, however the Mayor displayed his disapproval of the design. Full planning permission was not granted (or if it was, it was overturned by the Mayor's office) and the developers have since withdrawn this alternative proposal.
Currently, the only thing that has permission to rise on that site is the step-topped 278m skyscraper shown by LDN N7 in post #2374.

I hope that clears it up.

None of the later designs even come close to that.

The 255m height sounds amazing.

"...The 22 Bishopsgate building, under construction by Multiplex for AXA Investment Managers Real Assets, will be 255 metres (840 feet) tall."
