On Dundas Street West in Etobicoke, between Royal York Road and the Humber River, a new condominium community is gearing up to bring hundreds of new homes to the north end of Toronto’s Kingsway neighbourhood. Kingsway by the River by Urban Capital Property Group and Northam Realty Advisors will bring a 21-storey tower, an eight-storey mid-rise, and two blocks of townhomes to the neighbourhood, all designed by Wallman Architects.

The project's site on the north side of Dundas—formerly home to a pair of two-storey office buildings and a home improvement store—was cleared in the latter half of 2017. Construction of the community has been underway since early 2018, when drilling rigs arrived to begin work on the site's shoring system, and the subsequently completed excavation is now being followed by forming, currently in varying stages of progress across the site.

The community's first phase buildings—the high-rise and townhome components—are the furthest along. The tower now stretches 12 storeys high, over halfway towards a final height of 78 metres at the site's northeast edge overlooking the Humber Valley. Cladding installation has also begun to enclose the building, with window wall cladding now reaching up to the fourth floor, and vertical precast piers accenting the ground floor.

West of the rising tower, the townhome blocks are now structurally complete, and being finished in dark-tinted windows framed in black aluminum mullions. Insulation material is being installed in advance of the towns’ final dark brick finishes, while other finishing touches like exterior concrete entry stairs are beginning to appear.

At the south edge of the site along Dundas Street, the early stages of construction are progressing for the community's second phase, the eight-storey building marketed as K2 Condo Lofts. The building's underground parking levels are currently being formed, with the P2 level now taking shape.

Once complete, the sold-out development's tower, mid-rise, and townhomes will respectively house 201, 137, and 75 units.
