Statement of Interest

Whitehall Street and Crescent was laid out following the City Improvement Act to the overall design of William Mackison (with James Hutton and James Thomson, draughtsmen), following the development of Commercial Street in 1871. Various architects produced different designs but followed Mackison's floor levels and mix of Renaissance details. Robert Keith designed the first of the Whitehall buildings at 5 and 7 Whitehall Street (Whitehall Palace Buildings), dated 1884, for

William Kidd, publisher. In 1989 the original elements of the shopfront of 7 and 9 Whitehall Crescent were revealed from an earlier modernisation.
