A late 2019 application to the City of Toronto seeks rezoning to redevelop a 2.91-acre site at the northwest corner of Kipling and The Queensway in Etobicoke. Proposed by KingSett Capital, the proposed Giannone Petricone Associates-designed condominium complex at 1306 The Queensway would consist of two towers and a mid-rise building framing a central courtyard, along with a new public space. The site is currently home to two car dealerships.

At 31 storeys and 90 metres in height, the complex's tallest tower would front onto The Queensway, while a shorter 24-storey, 77-metre tower would rise to the north. At the east end of the site, the 12-storey, 43.6-metre-tall mid-rise building would front onto Kipling Avenue. The corner of Kipling and The Queensway would be occupied by a privately-owned public space, or POPS, linking the intersection with the central courtyard.

The complex is planned with a total gross floor area of 69,340 m², largely consisting of residential space in the form of 845 units across the three towers, proposed in a mix of 95 studios, 491 one-bedrooms, 167 two-bedrooms, and 92 three-bedrooms. 30% of the proposed units would include multiple bedrooms, with the City pressing new developments to include family-sized units.

The remaining 879 m² is proposed as ground-floor retail space, housed within the bases of the Kipling-fronting mid-rise and the 31-storey tower on The Queensway.

An almost 1:1 unit to parking space ratio is proposed, with a three-level underground parking garage containing 835 spaces. 709 of these would be dedicated to long-term residential spaces, along with 126 short-term visitor spaces.
