A development proposal dating back to May 2017 has been resubmitted to the City of Toronto, presenting sweeping changes to the original plan for 908 St. Clair West, a redevelopment of an LCBO and an adjacent discount store in the St. Clair West Village area. One of the several properties recently sold off by developer Main and Main, the project has been thoroughly redesigned for new developer Canderel Residential.

Previously proposed as a rental development, Canderel is now pursuing condominium tenure for the building and has retained TACT Architecture to redesign the project. Among the many changes to the design, the prominent brick finishes and rounded corners have been removed, while a 4.5-metre height increase brings the proposal to a new height of 44 metres.

Exterior finishes of light grey precast masonry and wood pattern veneer are proposed for podium levels. The upper levels would feature a mix of light and dark grey composite metal panels, while balconies would be finished in glazing with a gradient frit pattern.

The previously-proposed 151 rental units are now proposed as 169 condominium units in a mix of 73 one-bedrooms with an average area of 53 m², 77 two-bedrooms with an average area of 77 m², and 19 three-bedrooms with an average area of 100 m². Residents would have access to a combined 683 m² (7,353 ft²) of amenities, divided between 340 m² (3,664 ft²) of indoor space, and 343 m² (3,689 ft²) of outdoor space.
