Maybe that wouldn't happen if this tower hadn't been shortened.Well,every building has its dark face
I agree that's the most disappointing side. However, it faces the East End - and no offence to people living in the East End, but that's the part of London which far less tourists and people will visit.

In other words... the "important" skyline views (such as from Waterloo Bridge and St Paul's) will be the best-looking ones.

Hold on, I'm confused. The height reduction is to 288, right, not any further? Now looks barely taller than the Leadenhall building.

Great news for London. But I still don't think London will have / has the best skyline in Europe. La défence in Paris looks much better.

Nope, no more reductions.

And have you seen the renders? It's still significantly taller than Leadenhall...a lot in fact in London terms.

Dude delahaye - read it more carefully - they are selling stakes in the development to share the risk. The project continues as planned.

no, selling the site is something different to selling a stake in the project, DIFA is withdrawing from the project.

Seriously, they aren't selling the site. They are selling stakes in the project, so basically they will still be building it, just with a partner. The reason to do that is extra funding.

He, guys, does it happen you read the posts above of London Lad, Gothic, etc. ??

DIFA has presented the Bishopsgate Tower at EXPO REAL in Germany last week - the biggest real estates conference in Germany. They are seeking co-investors. Construction costs is estimated around 800-900 million euros.

EXPO REAL was commented in the German press. Frank Billand re-iterated DIFA wants to share the risk and construction costs. He also said that if a co-investor was found - there are in talks - he would prefer a prelet before starting construction. But that he does not rule out starting speculatively.
