Mount Pleasant West
Mount Pleasant West lives up to its name. Running from Yonge Street to Mount Pleasant Road south of Eglinton to its namesake Mount Pleasant Cemetery, this toney neighbourhood has a great variety of independent specialty shops, fine food purveyors and art and antique galleries. Many of the neighbourhood residents, consisting of a mixture of large families, older couples, and singles, live within the low and high-rise apartments or condominiums that scatter the area.
Its growth, location, amenities and walkability have made it one of the city’s most popular areas and a seller’s marketplace when it comes to real estate. Trendy boutiques market to higher income clientele but the locals know where to go for a reasonable bite. It is also serviced by two TTC subway stations: Davisville and Eglinton, as well as regular bus service.
