Islington-City Centre West (also known as Six Points or Etobicoke City Centre) is a neighbourhood in Toronto, Ontario,Canada. It is one of Toronto’s CBDs located in the former City of Etobicoke. Islington is bounded on the north by Rathburn Road, on the east by Kipling Avenue, Mimico Creek, and Islington Avenue, on the south by the Gardiner Expressway, and on the west by Etobicoke Creek and Highway 427.

Islington has a number of housing styles ranging from older, single family dwellings to apartment and condominium towers. Many of the older homes in the neighbourhood have been torn down and replaced with larger, more luxurious homes, particularly in the areas north of Dundas and east of Kipling. This is a trend that can be found all over older residential neighbourhoods in Toronto. The large lot sizes, mature trees and proximity to downtown Toronto is appealing to many would be residents. Dundas Street, between Islington and the Six Points interchange is currently undergoing change, with modern condominium developments under construction. Islington is quickly becoming one of West Toronto’s more affluent residential areas.
