The excellent Skyscrapernews.com has gotten wind of a new tower for the City, to be announced shortly by German fund management company DIFA. If built, it would be the tallest structure in the City by a long way. You can almost hear the sound of drool hitting desktop over on the skyscraper message boards.

As you can see, details are still sketchy and no date has been given for either the start of construction or completion. A press release is expected some time next week.
