The Manhattan Condos Designed by Quadrangle Architects, the Aspen Ridge Homes development—featuring an altered unit mix. At ground level, heritage retention plans remain in place, with the tower's floorplate accommodated via alterations to the existing properties.

Maintaining its presence at the Church and Charles intersection, the notable Manhattan apartment building will be retained in full and restored. Immediately to the north on Church Street, the heritage property at 634 and 636 will also be mostly retained, although both buildings' rear additions will be demolished. This structure (below, centre) will also be transported approximately 2.9 metres to the east.

Closer to Church Street, the structure will line up with east frontage of the Manhattan, accommodating the new tower's footprint while creating a more cohesive streetwall. At the northeast end of the site, the property at 638 Church will be demolished. Although this structure incorporates elements of the surrounding architectural typology, the building (above, right) is not considered a contributing heritage property.

To avoid encroaching upon the two-storey heritage properties, the tower's first three levels (3-5) feature a very compact 577 m² floorplate (above). From the 6th level onward, the tower floorplate is expanded to 731 m², a figure largely in line with the City's 750 m² standard. The lower levels will house amenity spaces and replacement rental units, while residential balconies begin from the 8th storey. Spanning most of the building's height, the conspicuous balcony pattern will likely prove a recognizable design element.
