North Toronto is a township located in the north of the Old Toronto district. The area has seen a rise in the construction of residential condominium buildings which has meant that the neighbourhood is rapidly changing from a mixed-density design to one of greater density. The southern end of the neighbourhood is currently very densely populated, with the section between Mount Pleasant road south of Davisville and Yonge Street being heavily made up of high-rise apartment and condo buildings.
North Toronto is served by an east-west strip on Eglinton Avenue, and also by north-south commercial strips along Yonge Street, Mount Pleasant Road and Bayview Avenue offering a wide variety of shopping and dining aimed mainly at the local market. The Yonge Eglinton Centre sits on the corner of Yonge and Eglinton and includes a shopping mall, multiplex cinema as well as residential and office towers. There is also the Canada Square, a smaller shopping concourse. Both of these are connected to the Eglinton subway station.
