100 Bishopsgate seems to be a good fit for it's plot, not too high, not too weird, it will add bulk and interest to the skyline from most directions! Anyone have any idea of when it's likely to be externally complete?

I seem to recall a similar scheme with towers looming over the Oval. What happened to that? Am I just imagining it?

Not imagining it, there's a draft masterplan (pdf link) for the Oval and Kennington Opportunity Area. That was November so it's early days on that one still

The three red cranes in the middle are for 33 Central.

Green cranes on the right are for Bloomberg Place.

I think the red cranes on the left behind St Pauls are at 1 New St Sq / 12 New Fetter Lane but I'm not 100% sure.

Funnily enough for the photo title 'Build Up', none of them are tall. Great photo though!
