Welcome to Yonge & Eglinton...

One of the most bustling intersections in midtown Toronto, Yonge and Eglinton offers great access to public transit, a thriving business core, and shopping galore, you can see why this neighbourhood remains one of the destinations to visit within the city and a great place to live.

The Good News

The place is called “Young and Eligible” for a reason. Young singles, couples, and families call the area home. Because of the handy access to the Yonge-University-Spadina TTC subway line, the downtown core is easy to get to, affording many residents the opportunity to get to work quickly and effectively. There’s plenty to see and do, with many shops, pubs, and restaurants to please.

The Bad News

Some of the small business charm has eroded, with a number of “big box” retailers moving into the area, along with tall residential towers that detract from the home-oriented development of the past. This will probably continue into the future as more transit infrastructure is created to support the community.

Homes, Architecture, and Real Estate

The reputation of the Yonge-Eglinton area as a hub for young families and urban professionals is warranted, given some of the housing figures.

Yes, 23 percent of residents live in homes, while 60 percent live in apartment buildings that are five stories or taller. This is a mixed-use neighbourhood with some detached homes that are younger than their older downtown counterparts.

Taller condominium units dot the neighbourhood, with more on the way. You’re able to find a good mix of one-, two-, or three-bedroom units here, with reasonable condominium rates. There are some lovely three-to-four–storey apartments to be had that have a retro and Art Deco feel to them between Yonge Street and Mount Pleasant Road.

Schools, Colleges, and Universities

There are several schools that service the neighbourhood, making it a perfect area to raise a family.
