Cinema Tower

A high-rise condo at Toronto

The Cinema Tower Condos were most likely called for its closeness to Toronto’s famous TIFF Bell Lightbox – the two structures back into one another. Fortunately for cultural junkies, 21 Widmer is located in the King West neighborhood and is surrounded by a plethora of entertainment facilities, including the 14-screen Scotiabank Theatre and the Princess of Wales Theatre.

When developing the Cinema Tower Condos, The Daniels Corporation and Kirkor Architects clearly realized the necessity to prioritize density, resulting in a structure with 440 apartments. The high-rise, glass and steel-clad structure with circular balconies, rising to 43 stories, was finished in 2013.



The six-story podium at 21 Widmer includes retail enterprises on the ground floor and the private “Club Cinematheque” on the top floor. Residents in the latter have access to a gym with a multi-use sports court, a sauna, a movie theater, a rooftop patio with grills, a games room, a conference room, and a party room. A concierge and security guard are on-site to ensure the building runs well, while visitor parking and guest rooms make life simpler for residents’ guests.


Regardless of one’s preferred mode of transportation, getting about the city is a snap with an address like 21 Widmer. Residents can walk to a streetcar station on King Street at John in less than 2 minutes, from which they may go east or west at any time of day. Travelers taking public transportation north or south can either walk to Spadina to the west or University to the east, with the former providing links to streetcars and the latter to underground trains.

Drivers, on the other hand, are in an equally advantageous position while residing in the Cinema Tower Condos. Both Adelaide and Richmond are neighboring one-way streets that allow motorists to avoid more crowded main routes. Spadina can quickly connect to the Gardiner Expressway, while University can take you all the way north to the 401.


By foot, you can get to the Rogers Centre and the Scotiabank Arena in less than 10 and 20 minutes, respectively. Sports enthusiasts may cheer on their favorite teams at both of these stadiums, while music lovers can enjoy some of the city’s largest concerts. While residents may not visit the CN Tower or Ripley’s Aquarium on a regular basis, the close proximity to these downtown Toronto attractions is useful when out-of-town visitors come to visit.


To top it all off, ecologically concerned purchasers will feel good about owning a property at the Cinema Tower. The structure not only collects rainwater, but it also has separate waste chutes to encourage recycling. The parking structure, with its ridesharing service and bike space, also supports green commuting.

The large number of pieces also allows for a wide range of size and arrangement options. Suites range in size from 400 to 1,500 square feet, with floor layouts ranging from studios to three bedroom houses. As a consequence, the building is full with living spaces appropriate for single professionals, childless couples, and new families.
