In the 1950s, Rexdale-Kipling was still farmland when developer Rex Heslop started the land assembly which resulted in the building of this community. Heslop envisaged that the conclusion of Highway 401 and the establishment of jobs at the nearby Toronto International Airport would bring a strong demand for residences in Rexdale. Heslop's forecast proved to be true as the Rexdale subdivision was sold out in a comparatively short period of time between the mid 1950s and the early 1960s.
Etobicoke granted certain considerations to Heslop on the terms that he also construct the farmland around what is now Rexdale Boulevard. Etobicoke desired this land to be altered from rural to industrial use to help relieve the rising residential tax rate in the Township. Heslop was realized that more manufacturers meant more jobs and hence more buyers for his Rexdale properties. Upon its conclusion, the Rexdale manufacturing area would turn into one of the city's largest industrial areas.
