Developer blames wind for four-month delay at 22 Bishopsgate

22 Bishopsgate

PLP’s giant is now set to open next autumn

The developer behind the tallest tower going up in the City of London has admitted the job is up to four months behind schedule.

Stuart Lipton said a completion date of next July for PLP’s 22 Bishopsgate had been pushed back to November, laying most of the blame on wind shutting down cranes.

The 278m tower, which has an estimated construction pricetag of £600m is being built by Multiplex and developed by Lipton and Peter Rogers under the Lipton Rogers brand the pair set up five years ago.
