Toronto Downtown on the verge of a Major Shift to the North of Yonge and Bloor, to Yonge and Eglinton. A rash of recent development proposals and construction will change the Yonge and Eglinton / Area forever. The foremost development is actually the New Eglinton-Crosstown LRT which will run parallel to the older Bloor-Danforth Line to the south, and the previous demarcation line for the Downtown Core. The line will actually run underground from Don Mills in the East all the way to Mount Albert in the West just by the Etobicoke Border. Providing cross city transportation to the mid-section of the city. The major terminals of the line will be at Yonge and Eglinton as well as Eglinton and Allen Road, where it will intersect with the existing subway networks.
