Curbed has a report on some new details of the proposed adaptive reuse project set for the Victoria Theater on 125th Street. Besides increasing the number of rental units and hotel rooms in the two tower complex, it appears that much of the theater's original lobby will be preserved for the hotel entrance. Restoration of the facade will proceed as expected but the original interior lobby, fountain, and grand staircase will go under renovation also.
