Over a year and a half after Madison Group submitted a zoning by-law amendment application for a 45-storey mixed-use condominium tower on the east side of Downtown Toronto at 120 Church, the project has been re-submitted following a settlement between the developer and City reached at LPAT in January. Designed by Teeple Architects with Turner Fleischer Architects as Architect of Record, the plan has undergone several refinements, though the initially-proposed 45-storey, 149.5-metre height remains unchanged.

The biggest changes come to the massing, which has been re-designed to respond to the site's irregular shape and varied surroundings. The podium levels have been stepped down to 3, 4 and 5 storeys with a series of terraces that address land uses including the heritage building at the corner of Church and Richmond Streets, which the building wraps around, as well as a new 198  public park to be dedicated to the City. 

The previous plan for 442 condominium units has been increased, with the latest rezoning calling for 479 condominium units proposed in a mix of 30 bachelor units, 163 one-bedroom units, 235 two-bedroom units, and 51 three-bedroom units. Residents would have access to 1,326  (14,273 ft²) of indoor amenity space and 602  (6,486ft²) of outdoor amenity space.

Other changes include the reduction of the building's total gross floor area (GFA) by approximately 6,000 , with the resulting GFA now broken down between 36,016  of residential space, and 2,182  of retail space within the podium.
