In 1793, Lieutenant-Governor John Graves Simcoe, accompanied by his wife, Elizabeth, settled on the irregular fringe of Lake Ontario. He envisioned a portage route that would connect his lands to Georgian Bay, making it possible for merchants and fur traders to reach their markets.
Yonge Street soon became a commercial nerve centre, with stores and other businesses lining the streets of the downtown area. It was also a place of innovation and entrepreneurship, drawing business and cultural leaders that would shape Toronto's identity and make it a vital city.
It is no surprise then that the region was soon dubbed an "Urban Growth Centre" by the province of Ontario, attracting more than just businesses. Today, Yonge and Eglinton has become a bustling and upscale shopping, working and living destination that is comparable to many areas of downtown.
The neighbourhood is considered one of the better transit areas in the city. In fact, tenants today utilize public transportation more frequently than ever before.
Among the many historic structures in the area are a row of 11 storefronts between 2019 and 2039 Yonge St that have cultural heritage value for their design. They represent the craftsmanship of Toronto's late 19th century commercial buildings.
