The design of Two St. Thomas elegantly blends the development within its neighbourhood, a dense mix of Victorian-era houses, University of Toronto gothic collegiate style buildings, and upscale, high-rise residential complexes. Located next to a well-known HPA project, the heritage-listed McKinsey and Company Headquarters, the building is comprised of two towers of 11 and 26-storeys. It is defined by its horizontal and vertical lines, clad in high-quality, enduring materials such as limestone and precast concrete. Harmonizing with its surroundings through careful consideration of scale and proportion, Two St. Thomas also differentiates itself with its modern design.

The building rises in two distinct volumes that create an urban streetwall at the south end of St. Thomas Street. To the north of the site, an 11-storey podium incorporates the historic University Apartments and 8 St. Thomas. At the St. Thomas and Charles Street West intersection, a 26-storey tower houses the majority of the rental units.
