The section of the new Government Offices at present in course of construction will form part of a building some 540 ft. long by 250 ft. wide on a site bounded by Whitehall, Horseguards Avenue, the Victoria Embankment and Richmond Terrace. On the Whitehall front the building line lies well back from the road and passes behind the existing United Services Museum, United Services Institution and Gwydyr House. On the Embankment side a strip 160 ft. wide between building and road will be occupied by gardens.
