Toronto Downtown on the verge of a Major Shift to the North of Yonge and Bloor, to Yonge and Eglinton. A rash of recent development proposals and construction will change the Yonge and Eglinton / Area forever. The foremost development is actually the New Eglinton-Crosstown LRT which will run parallel to the older Bloor-Danforth Line to the south, and the previous demarcation line for the Downtown Core. The line will actually run underground from Don Mills in the East all the way to Mount Albert in the West just by the Etobicoke Border. Providing cross city transportation to the mid-section of the city. The major terminals of the line will be at Yonge and Eglinton as well as Eglinton and Allen Road, where it will intersect with the existing subway networks. Eglinton Crosstown Map and the Bloor Line far to the South In addition to the new East-West Subway Line, there is massive redevelopment at the Intersection on all sides.
Yonge and Eglinton will be the transfer station for both the LRT and the subway so that's going to make it a very busy transfer hub right in the heart of the city actually kind of extending the downtown core north to Yonge and Eglinton and dismal be young and Eglinton center is right in the heart of all of that and it's got lots of new store as well as lots of anchor stores in the lot of renovations to expand the space and allow for bigger retail tenant in the location.
All these new redevelopments will be connected underground, not only to each other and the subway, but also to the new Eglinton Crosstown LRT, which seems set to take over the mantel in the northern core and the limit of the downtown core by the year 2025 when all this development is set to be completed. Along with the thousands of residents the area will become a major focal, urban and terminal point of the city in the next 10 years as the current developments unfold.
