Carter Horsley's Review of The Capitol

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"This very distinguished, 8-story, mid-block apartment building is one of the most attractive glazed terracotta structures in the city.

The building is almost symmetrical. The central section of the building has a very wide window flanked by two smaller windows and the east end of the street frontage has a medium-wide window and the west end a small window. The windows at the west and east ends are framed in continuous pilasters with decorative borders. All the windows are deeply inset giving the façade a very strong sense of depth and drama. Furthermore, all the windows are multipaned with quite large panes comprising the lower four-fifths and many small panes across the top one-fifth that reinforce the building's horizontal accents, which include four bandcourses and a large cornice. The end windows have short wrought-iron balcony railings on the third through the seventh floors. Those on the top floor have angled balconies that continue the decorative relief of the large bandcourse at that level." Read Carter's Full Review
