Concord Park Place
Concord Park Place is a 45-acre (18 ha), master-planned multi-tower condominium complex currently under construction in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, between Sheppard Avenue, Leslie Street, Highway 401, and Bessarion Road.
Several Toronto based architectural firms are involved in the project:
- IBI Group/Quadrangle Architects Limited/Page and Steele - Discovery and Discovery 2 (Buildings A, B, D, E)
- Du Toit Allsopp Hillier/Kuwabara Payne McKenna Blumberg Architects - Discovery 3 Towers 10-12, 14-15, 3-9
- Young & Wright Architects Incorporated
- IBI Group - Discovery 4 - towers
The site was previously occupied by a large Canadian Tire distribution facility and retail store. Both buildings were built in 1960s on former farmland and surrounded by single family homes built in the 1950s and 1960s. Canadian Tire began plans in 1999 to move the Distribution Centre (now located at 2111 Steeles Avenue East in Brampton, Ontario) and finally sold the site to Concord Adex. Demolition began in 2007 to clear the DC and retail store. Concord Park Place is the second of two planned themed communities along the 401/Sheppard cooridor.
The developers are Concord Adex, who are also developing CityPlace, a condo neighbourhood along Toronto's lake shore.
Upon completion, Concord Park Place will be home to 5,000 condominium units in 20 buildings, high-rise, and mid-rise. Four buildings have been announced thus far; Discovery (Buildings A, B) and Discovery II (Buildings D, E) and located to the north of the Ikea store.
The remaining 16 buildings will be located on the former footprint of the old Canadian Tire warehouse and store to the west of Provost Drive.
Canadian Tire relocated the retail store further east on the property at Provost and Sheppard Avenue East.

Ikea has a shuttle service from the store to Leslie station.
Within the development are a number of new or expanded local roads to ease congestion for future residents in the area:
- Esther Shiner Boulevard - new road connects Old Leslie Street and Provost Drive to Leslie Street; portion from Provost to railway underpass was formerly the main driveway to the Ikea store
- Provost Drive - extended under railway line to meet with Esther Shiner Boulevard and extends to the rear of the Ikea store
When the development is completed, Esther Shiner Boulevard will be extended further west and other roads maybe added.
