Since Concert Properties' 2013 purchase of the former Canadian Tire location at 5365 Dundas Street West adjacent to Kipling subway and GO station in Etobicoke, many have been wondering what is in store for this property. The large footprint of this 'Six Points' site combined with its proximity to high-rise apartment and condominium towers and Etobicoke's planned City Centre around the gives this property some major redevelopment potential. Thanks to the first rendering of Concert's The Kip District, we are getting our first glimpse of what is planned for the site.

The Kip District, designed by Page + Steele / IBI Group Architects, will take the form of a multi-building complex with both residential and retail uses located around a town square within the site. The development is to be built in multiple phases, the first of which will be a 28-storey condominium tower pictured in the included rendering. For a look at what this development will be replacing, we turn to a Google Street View image of the site captured in September of 2012.

In the time since the image above was captured, the site of The Kip District has been fenced off with hoarding bearing the logo of the new development.
