CAPITOL SINGAPORE

A brand-new Capitol

A historical landmark from the 1930s, Capitol Singapore’s distinctive façade houses a range of retail, lifestyle and F&B outlets.

Located at the junction of North Bridge Road and Stamford Road, the distinctive Capitol Building has long been one of City Hall’s landmarks.

After four years of renovation work, the historic structure from the 1930s has been restored to its former glory and is now part of Capitol Singapore, an integrated development.

Historic centre of attention

Originally designed by architectural firm Keys & Dowdeswell and commissioned by the Namazie family, the neoclassical Capitol Building was completed in 1933, four years after the Capitol Theatre. The adjoining theatre dominated the Singapore movie scene for decades after it opened as the premier cinema in the country.

With its striking façade and portico facing the road junction, the building became the backdrop to one of Singapore’s most recognisable street corners. Its giant billboards—emblazoned with posters of the latest movies screening at Capitol Theatre—attracted the attention of pedestrians and motorists alike. 

Today, the Capitol Theatre has become a venue for dance and theatrical productions, film screenings and red-carpet movie premieres, with its original architectural details kept intact. It boasts an Art Deco entrance, a curved cantilevered canopy, a vaulted roof embellished with the 12 zodiac signs, as well as sculptures of winged horses and their riders flanking the stage.

Shopping and entertainment hub

This cluster of heritage buildings—Capitol Building, Capitol Centre, Capitol Theatre and Stamford House—have been given a new lease on life, and are now collectively known as Capitol Singapore.

This integrated development houses a lifestyle, shopping and entertainment development that includes the ultra-luxurious Capitol Kempinski Hotel, Eden Residences—Capitol’s luxury apartments—as well as Capitol Piazza and Arcade @ The Capitol Kempinski.

Capitol Piazza—a buzzing retail stretch at Level 1—houses luxury boutiques like Cortina Watches, CYC and Wu Pao Chun, the famed Taiwanese bakery. 

Arcade @ The Capitol Kempinski is a stretch of F&B establishments, boasting cuisine from all across the globe. Visitors will be able to indulge in German cuisine and beer at Frieda, enjoy specialty coffee and pastries at Berthold Delikatessen and indulge in comfort food at Capitol Milk Bar.

An underground walkway within Arcade @ The Capitol Kempinski also facilitates easy access to the mall from City Hall Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) station.
