15 Developments To Get Excited For Around The Eglinton Crosstown

Developments Around The Eglinton Crosstown

The Eglinton Crosstown is on its way, which means the addition of an assortment of new subway stations to provide access to the city’s variety of lines. Once you are on the subway you can get anywhere, and the upcoming LRT is expanding that scope.

Of course, these stations are highly-coveted entryways to transit routes that mean they attract students and working professionals alike who want seamless travel into the city -- all while remaining removed from hustle and bustle.

With this new subway line has come an influx of developments slated to be built before, after, and during the time of its construction. People are flocking to the surrounding areas of these stations, resulting in the inevitable urbanization of these different communities within the Eglinton neighbourhood.

We rounded up some of the developments surrounding the LRT stations that buyers and investors alike will want to keep their eyes peeled for:
