Planning approval for Jenners building restoration in Edinburgh.

Edinburgh City Council has unanimously approved planning permission and Listed Building Consent for the restoration of Jenners’ celebrated building on Princes Street. The project builds on the department store’s heritage and envisages a new combination of high-end retail and hospitality for Edinburgh. It seeks to re-establish the architectural quality of the original 1895 William Hamilton Beattie building and involves the sensitive restoration of important surviving features and the reinstatement of lost original elements.
