to the east, Sun Street, Appold Street and the eastern part of Worship Street to the north, the southern part of Wilson Street to the west and Eldon Street and Liverpool Street to the south. Included in the estate are Broadgate
Circle and Exchange Square. Boundary changes which came into effect in 1994 now place the entire estate within the City of London

British Land

[7] Controversy[edit] In early 2011 there was controversy over the redevelopment of the site of a Peter Foggo building, when it was suggested by the City of London's Chief Planning Officer Peter Rees and Ken Shuttleworth that Peter Foggo would have been pleased that the building would be demolished.[8] References[edit]
