huzzah, it'll be about 20 metres away from Heron. Bishopsgate is about to turn into a canyon. Goth's image seems to show it about 200m, its top is just below Heron's rooftop. Interesting. Run of good news in the past few weeks. We should expect a few renders if the planning app is due for the summer then. Phew.

We heard a few months back that GPE were considering tall, medium or low. I guessing that this is kite-flying, to see how the press reacts to another tower. If it gets slated they'll just go for medium.

That's a rendering which appeared on this forum back in 2002-2003, I remember it well.

1 - Drapers Gardens
2 - Heron Tower
3 - Angel Court
4 - 80-88 Bishopsgate
5 - Tower 42
6 - Stock Exchange Tower
7 - Vision/fantasy proposal
8 - 30 St Mary Axe
9 - The Minerva Building
10 - St Helens
11 - DIFA Tower (previous site)
12 - 122 Leadenhall (before we knew the design)
13 - Lloyds of London
14 - 51 Lime Street


Interesting how things have changed since then. DIFA is now a stunning world class design, situated further north and over 50m taller than we expected; 122 Leadenhall likewise is a far better design, Heron is now taller (but still delayed), Minerva is doubtful to go ahead, 80-88 Bishopsgate is substantially shorter, 51 Lime Street is now making its mark on the skyline and is almost topped out, Drapers Gardens will be gone soon, and the Exchange Tower will get a shiny new reclad.

And of course, we now have the Broadgate Tower, 20 Fenchurch Street, Northgate Tower and various midrises expected nearby.

The building on the left is what's being redeveloped. This area will be like Manhattan in terms of density -
