With an Official Plan Amendment (OPA) and rezoning application first submitted to Toronto's Planning Department in 2014, plans for the redevelopment of a commercial site at 4210 Dundas St West have advanced with a new Site Plan Application (SPA) for a second phase at the site, being marketed as Kingsway by the River by Urban Capital Property Group and Northam Realty Advisors. Designed by Wallman Architects, the new community will add 413 residential unit in residential buildings of 21 and 8 storeys tall, plus two sets of stacked townhomes. 

The project received zoning approval from City Council in December 2016, with the SPA submission for the first phase on the north side of the site, following some two weeks later. Recently, an SPA was submitted for phase two which fronts onto Dundas Street, to be 8-storeys/101-feet tall, and which will have 137 residential units plus retail at ground level.

Originally planned as senior residences, and with plans for a childcare facility to be situated on the third and fourth levels of the building, the building is now planned to offer standard residential suites. The ground level retail is proposed to encompass over 17,800 ft² of retail space fronting both Dundas and a new street to west of the building. Two levels of underground parking will be accessed from the north side, providing 164 vehicular spaces, while 128 bicycle parking spots will be available on the P1 level and ground floor.

The second level will see an outdoor amenity space on the north side of the building, totalling just shy of 3,300 ft². Directly beside the outdoor space, about 2,835 ft² of indoor amenity space will feature a gym, party room, and a bar/kitchenette with seating. The unit breakdown includes 91 one-bedroom units, 43 two-bedroom units, and 3 three-bedroom units.
