Well, considering the Shard will be 1,016 feet

The main reason for a cap on height is City Airport.

I think that's quite nice design. It not only fits to London skyline but also looks very modern. Office towers don't necessarily have to look futuristic. As long as there's space to work and they're high everything is ok.

Are those towers very far from the Central London?

Is there only water in the hole of the taller tower? Will they both start construction at the same time?

Was there a re-design because they aren't 236m and 189m. the main canary warf tower is 235m, and this is not as tall, quite a bit short

There was a redesign (well, mainly just a height increase), and this greatly increased the height of the taller tower, to 236m, which will make it the tallest building in the UK (if it is built before the Shard or the Pinnacle, which may be unlikely)

Crikey these are vast I expect them to look far more prominent than the Bishopsgate Tower, but the BLT will draw in more eyes.
