I remember a long walk home from work to my apt in High Park- lots of people were out and about along Bloor. It was very dark looking out from my balcony- pretty strange.The last time that was possible was in 2003, but it was during the blackout.
The planned 14-storey condo will be set back from the front of the theatre and feature 145 units consisting of one, two and three-bedroom suites.
Zagdanski said the vertical addition will be “complementary” to the theatre but won’t “mimic it.”
“The intent is for [the additions] to be timeless,” he said. “You’ll see elements of limestone working their way up the terrace of the building as it steps away from Yonge Street.”
The ground-floor interior of the theatre will be converted into retail space, but the tenants have not been determined yet, according to Zagdanski.
Sales for the condos are launching this summer. Zagdanski hopes for construction to begin early next year and to finish 24 to 30 months later.
