Also, I believe there is a rumour around that a tower around 260 meters may be built on the 80-88 bishopsgate site. I think the idea is that since Bishopsgate Tower is suppossed to have turns at the top of its surrounding scrapers, there may be a new tower built to the height of the last turn on the Bishopsgate Tower.

I heard the 'Difas turns' rumour too. Would be cool to have another tall building there. No doubt it would take about a decade before we saw a start to construction though...

Yeah, if it were to be built on 80-88 bishopsgate, it could start construction in 2012 at the earliest.
