The most radical change in the new design is the decision to go with two buildings instead of the one.
The design provides a six- to nine-metre gap between the buildings, providing a view of the St. Lawrence from South Street.
Dantzer said the two buildings mean that CaraCo is taking a financial hit because the project would provide 89 suites -- 23 in one building, 66 in the other -- instead of the 100 units in the original plan.
The reduction in units means the per-unit price would have to be higher, Dantzer said.
The most common complaint about the original design was the uninterrupted facade, which some residents equated with the Berlin Wall.
Dantzer said the two buildings with the gap in between should salve those concerns -- the building facade is no longer uninterrupted and there is a view of the river.
As well, Dantzer said, the two-building design allows CaraCo to increase the setback of the east building, another concern of residents.
The two buildings are still six storeys, but Dantzer said the steeply sloped and gabled roof of the original project has been changed to a more gradual slope, lowering the overall height of the buildings by about a metre.
