Designed by Arcadis, the tower is envisioned as a mixed-use building rising to a height of 228 metres and would contain 663 residential units. Renderings for the project showcase a slender tower featuring a series of stacked volumes as part of the building’s architectural expression. The development would contain one level of underground parking, 597 bicycle parking spaces, and 133 visitor parking spaces.

The site is currently occupied by a 4-storey office building and is located just south of Wellesley Station along the TTC Line 1 subway, within a designated Major Transit Station Area (MTSA).
