Our annual Growth To Watch For series is back for another year, bigger, taller, and more comprehensive than ever before. Over the course of the year, we're bringing you to every significant development happening across the 416 and beyond into the Greater Toronto Area. We're covering everything from brand new proposals, to those inching their way through the planning process, to those already under construction or about to be completed.

A total of 25 reports will be available to subscribers throughout the year, with 13 released earlier. (Details about how to get them can be found at the bottom of this article.) For a taste of what's offered in the 14th report, here's a sneak peek at the area highlighted.

This edition of our Growth to Watch For series picks up where our previous one—the East York and Don Mills report—left off at Bayview and Hillsdale in the Leaside neighbourhood. From here, we move west through the side streets of Midtown Toronto, then back east on Eglinton before zigzagging through the streets to the north, then west through the Allenby and Forest Hill neighbourhoods, and finally south on Yonge all the way to Summerhill.

A range of project types can be found on this route, with everything from tall towers to sensitively-scaled developments, as well as the central stretch of an important new transit line. The tallest and densest projects in the area covered in this report reside in the vicinity of the Yonge-Eglinton intersection, including active construction projects like 2221 Yonge, and future developments like 1 Eglinton East.

Various smaller-scaled developments are either planned or underway on the stretch of Yonge between Eglinton and Davisville. Some of the mid-rise condominium buildings coming to this stretch include the planned 1984 Yonge, the early-construction Uovo Boutique Residences, and topped-out, largely enclosed J. Davis House

All of the new density near Eglinton will soon be served by the upcoming Line 5, Crosstown LRT, carved above and below 19 kilometres of Eglinton Avenue East and West. The line's busiest stretch will run underground through the area covered in this report, including the LRT's interchange station with the Yonge subway. The line is currently on track to open in 2021, by which time thousands of new residents will have populated the under-construction residential developments covered in this report.
