The stretch of Dundas Street West from Subway Crescent to Shorncliffe Road is in the midst of a major transformation as two multi-phase condominium communities are now under construction. The eastern portion of the site consists of The Kip District, a five tower development by Concert, while the western portion is home to Pinnacle Etobicoke by Pinnacle International.

Pinnacle Etobicoke will comprise up to nine high-rise towers with shared podiums, new retail and surrounding parkland. The first phase of the project features the 25-storey Cypress at Pinnacle Etobicoke, designed by Turner Fleischer Architects. Construction activity began in 2018, when an existing three-storey office complex and a two-storey retail strip mall were demolished on the site. Drilling rigs arrived in July 2018, and shoring and excavation commenced shortly thereafter. A year later, the construction pit was fully excavated and a tower crane was installed.

The next major milestone was achieved in January 2020, when the underground levels were poured and the structure began to rise above grade. The building continued to progress throughout the year including the installation of exterior cladding and windows on lower levels as crews continued to pour higher floors above.

The crane was removed in spring 2021 when the tower officially topped off. Today, the exterior of the building is fully enclosed and much of the work is happening indoors as crews work towards a September 2021 completion date.

When completed, Cypress will house 288 units designed by Tanner Hill and Associates. Available suites are priced from $629,900 and range from 737 to 1,027 square feet.

Residents will have access to private amenities like a fully-equipped exercise room, yoga studio, party room with a kitchenette, a children’s play area, and an outdoor terrace with a barbecue area. The project will also have large retail and commercial spaces in the podium including several street-level retail units.
