Niomey Massey thinks that the stretch of Eglinton between Yonge and Mt. Pleasant could use a bit of livening up.

By contrast, she notes, Eglinton Ave. E., with its small, old-school retailers and smattering of bars and eateries, “doesn’t really provide the link it can.”

Occupying the entire block of Eglinton between Dunfield Ave. and Lillian St., the development will include 644 condos and 53,600 square feet of retail space, anchored by a 40,000-square-foot grocery store. (Currently, the area has a 24-hour Metro in the basement of the Yonge Eglinton Centre.)
