17-55 would be what I'd do if I were "upgrading" mine

17-55 is most definitely an upgrade, and a fine one at that.

Voted for the 3rd option. What's the driver though? You already have excellent lenses, though perhaps better suited for full frame. I think the 17-55 would complement very nicely on the 7D, but you may find your 17-40 and 24-105 somewhat redundant...

start with "what for?" to gain you what over what you have?

Might I ask why? I'd be interested to hear your comparison, I'm debating between the 17-55 and 15-85 right now myself. Obviously the lower cost of the 15-85 is nice but the 2.8 of the 17-55 is nice.

I don't really consider the 17-55mm an upgrade. I bought the 15-85mm because it is just as sharp as the 17-55mm, and for me, the added focal range is much more useful than the faster aperture.

I use flash for low light shooting indoors, and where I can't use flash, I use high ISO.

EDIT: If I want to get creative with depth of field, my 70-200mm 2.8 is much better than a 17-55mm 2.8. My 35mm 2.0 and 55mm 1.5 work pretty well for that too, but they rarely get used.

I'm not sure I'd consider any of those a real "upgrade" over the 15-85mm, unless you want the constant f/2.8 aperture. For the prices you list, the 15-85mm is less than all of them, and in some cases 50% of the price of the "upgrade".

The 15-85mm is consistently tack sharp on my 50D, and focuses as fast or faster than any other lens I've owned.

The great folks here taught me about the 17 - 55 when I was looking to upgrade from the 15 - 85. After a great deal of wringing of hands and gnashing of teeth I finally purchased one. I could not be happier.
