Madison Group and Westdale Properties have been teasing out new details for The Capitol Residences, their upcoming condominium development at Yonge and Castlefield in Midtown Toronto. A rollout of renderings for the 14-storey, Turner Fleischer Architects and Hariri Pontarini Architects-designed building began earlier this year with images showing the restored exterior walls of the 1918-built Capitol Theatre, its marquee, and canopy over the Yonge Street sidewalk.
“Over the last century, the Capitol Theatre has been a staple in Toronto’s entertainment scene and we are honoured to bring new life to this highly historic venue through the launch of its namesake residences,” reads a statement from Josh Zagdanski, Vice President of High Rise at Madison Group. “This boutique project will capture the nostalgic vibrancy of years past while adding a modern take on the original style. Just as The Capitol Theatre once brought joy and entertainment to the city, The Capitol Residences will bring new liveliness to the neighbourhood.”
We got a first peek at The Capitol Residences’ Studio Munge-appointed interiors through a rendering of the porte-cochère that suggested a luxe experience. Next, we got a glimpse at the lavish golf simulator room and then an enticing amenity terrace. Now, another batch of images has been released, showing off two more amenity spaces. The first of the new batch is for the building’s social club, which fancifully depicts a lounge, mid-confetti burst with an apparent Oscar-winner celebrating. A double-sided fireplace serves as a centrepiece for the room, while doors connect to an outdoor space beyond. Unseen indoors, a dining area with servery connects to the lounge below.
