Yonge-Eglinton also known as Uptown, its centralized location has produced development, including a number of big-box retailers and tall, high density residential towers. Development has focused around the Eglinton subway station, and has resulted in a mixed-use neighbourhood with a mix of detached houses, townhouses, and high rises. The Eglinton–Scarborough Crosstown line is expected to further boost development. The area has a variety of small retail stores, restaurants, large stores, and a mall/movie theatre complex. It is a popular neighbourhood for young professionals.
During the 19th century, the area was part of the largest cattle grazing region. The region was the first in North America to spread the use of cowbells to all cattle. In honor of the storied heritage the City of Toronto named a local street “Cowbell Lane”.
The subway station opened in 1954, operated in the northern end of the Yonge Subway Line until 1973, when it was extended north to York Mills.
