At ground level, the Church and Shuter frontages are dominated by a double-height 503 m² retail space, with residential lobby access at the southeast corner of the podium on Shuter Street. While the street-level retail plan is generally maintained from the initial proposal—which called for a 523 m² space—the lower levels have otherwise been reconfigured.

In response to City concerns, the unit mix has also been altered, with the proportion of two-bedroom suites notably increased (from 6% to 27%), while a 10% allotment of three-bedroom units is carried over from the previous plan.

Aside from the somewhat uncommon massing strategy, further noteworthy elements set the proposal apart from Toronto's typical development template. Beginning at the top, an unusual combination of residential and mechanical components crowns the tower (below). Forgoing the added height of a standalone mechanical level, the 29th storey features both mechanical elements and penthouse floor space. While the elevator overrun generally means that mechanical installations sit atop residential uses, the split-level penthouses (accessible by elevator from the 28th floor) allow for staircase access to the 29th level.

At the lower levels, meanwhile, the north elevation's first seven tower storeys—which are essentially built to the lot line—are clad in window-wall glazing. Like the mechanical/residential layout above, this configuration is an uncommon one, as windows directly overlooking a low-rise site can complicate the viability of neighbouring development. (For this reason, such facades are often left blank). At 60 Shuter, three heritage-listed properties border the the site on Church Street, and the air space above would presumably need to be protected to facilitate the tower's north-facing windows.
