The application entails 61 strata residential units, with the unit mix comprised of 41 studio units, six one-bedroom units, and 14 two-bedroom units.

There will also be approximately 13,000 sq. ft. of office, retail, and restaurant space mainly within the ground level. A dedicated, unique restaurant space with 4,200 sq. ft. of space spans both the ground level and a portion of an underground level.

“The building honours Mount Pleasant’s legacy of forestry by celebrating wood construction employing a combination of light wood framing and Cross-Laminated Timber structure, exposed CLT wood ceilings in the dwelling units, wood accented lobbies and common spaces, and a hybrid wood cladding, both at and above grade,” reads the design rationale by Formosis Architecture.

Two underground levels will also contain 115 vehicle parking stalls.

With a total floor area of 58,194 sq. ft., the floor space ratio density of the project is three times the size of its lot.
