Also known as ‘Yonge and Eligible’, this uptown neighbourhood is crawling with yuppies. It has the ‘rush’ of downtown, yet the ‘calm’ of uptown. With countless number of restaurants, outdoor patios and boutique shops, it’s the hottest place to be on Saturday afternoon. The area is home to a number of businesses, notably Canadian Tire, whose corporate head office is located in the Canada Square office complex.

Real Estate: For the  most part, the neighbourhood offers mainly 2 storey semis and classic 2 storey detached – with a classic look and feel. 

There are very few condo buildings on the west side – the very popular development of condos and apartments for rent can be found on the east side of Yonge Street. Quiet boutique condos can be found along Edith and Oriole Parkway, and they tend to be bigger in size. The former Hunt Eglinton Hunt Club clubhouse is located at 1111 Avenue. Today, the Hunt Club is a luxurious condo conversion, featuring 21 rarely offered units.

Parks: Eglinton Park, located a few blocks west of Eglinton Subway Station, has two baseball diamonds, soccer fields, a splash pool, and a kids playground. Outdoor tennis courts are turned into skating rinks in the winter.
