Yonge-Eglinton Real Estate
Recently, because of its centralized location, there has been massive development, including a number of big-box retailers and high density residential towers. While development has concentrated around the Eglinton subway station, there are still plenty of residential homes in the immediate area. To the north the housing stock includes bungalows, as well as semi-detached and fully detached houses, built mostly between 1910 and 1940. The southernmost neighbourhood, known as Chaplin Estates, is a bit more up-scale with larger lots and grander detached houses.
The area is home to a variety of small retail stores, restaurants, cafés and bakeries, several big box stores and a large indoor mall with a movie theatre complex and dozens of shops and restaurants that get especially active at lunchtime when the office towers empty and high school kids get out.
