A rezoning application has been submitted to the City of Toronto by Marlin Spring Developments for 2306 St Clair Avenue West, proposing an 11-storey mixed-use residential building with commercial space at ground level. Originally submitted in June 2017, revisions have been made to the commercial spaces and overall design. The 34 metre-tall building designed by Graziani + Corazza Architects features a red brick exterior with black framed warehouse-style fenestration.

Located in the north part of The Junction and a long block west of 'The Stockyards', the property, formerly the site of a meat packing plant, has a curving west lot line which follows a former railway spur. To the west of it is a car dealership, while low-rise residential is adjacent to the north and east. On the south side of St. Clair are restaurants, shops, and light industrial uses. The building will bring 576m² of ground floor commercial space to the north side of St Clair.

The massing steps back from adjacent homes up to a mechanical penthouse and green roof. Slightly reduced in size from the initial design, the proposal now includes 257 units, (10 less than initially), with 118 one-bedrooms, 113 two-bedrooms and 26 three-or-more-bedrooms. Previously proposed with have 184 parking spaces, the two level below ground garage is now proposed to provide 221 spaces, 195 for residents and 26 visitor spaces. 231 bicycle storage spaces are proposed. Amenity spaces are proposed, with 514m² of indoor space, while 614m² of outdoor space would be located along the curving south-west side of the lot. NAK Design Strategies is the landscape architect, introducing new trees and planters along the property lines.
