Toronto Real Estate Neighborhood Profile Midtown

Midtown Toronto is an area of Toronto, Canada roughly defined as the area north of Bloor Street (south of which is Downtown Toronto) and south of Lawrence Avenue, (north of which is Uptown Toronto.) The east and west borders are somewhat defined as Bayview Avenue to Marlee Avenue/Oakwood Avenue/Ossington Avenue. The centre of this area is Yonge and Eglinton. It covers the former towns of North Toronto and Forest Hill.
Yonge and St. Clair
Rosedale, Forest Hill, Deer Park and Summerhill are generally defined as the most upscale cluster of neighbourhoods in the City (rivaled only by the central portion of Lawrence Ave.) and boast some of the most exclusive residences in the city. The intersection of Yonge and St. Clair (located in Deer Park) is the commercial centre for these midtown neighbourhoods. It is home to the historic and pastoral Mount Pleasant Cemetery and the hidden St. Michael’s Cemetery.
Davisville
Davisville Village encompasses the area east of Yonge Street to the west side of Bayview Avenue, and south from Eglinton to Merton Street, overlooking the vast park-like setting of Mount Pleasant Cemetery. It is one of the most sought-after neighbourhoods in Toronto, and is home to many residential high-rise apartments and boutique shops. Its many large Victorian and Tudor homes are among the most expensive residences in the city.
With the exception of Merton Street, Davisville’s lack of new high-rise condominium developments preserves a look and feel similar to that found in Toronto’s other upscale low-rise neighborhoods such as Lawrence Park, The Beaches and The Kingsway.
Yonge and Eglinton
The centre of midtown and one of Toronto’s four major city centres, “Yonge and Eg” is the junction of North Toronto (east and west of Yonge, north of Eglinton), the northern edges of Davisville (southeast) and Chaplin Estates (southwest). The immediate area includes several high-rise office buildings, the busy Eglinton Station, and a large mall-office complex. It is home to numerous restaurants, two multiplex cinemas, and a diverse retail strip. Since about 2000, this region has been undergoing a surge in commercial and residential development and a massive influx of young urban professional singles and families.
