Yonge-Dundas Square commonly knows as YD Square is on the corner of Yonge Street and Dundas Street. It was created to revitalize the intersection. With its grand opening in 2002 the YD Square has become one of the busiest intersections in Canada. The square hosts public events, performances, and displays art. No one expect this location to become a prime tourist attraction but it has. There are some major landmarks that surround the square which include: the largest media tower in Canada, the Eaton Centre, Ryerson University, and Ed Mirvish Theatre. The square has been dubbed as “Toronto Times Square” because of continuously illuminated neon, electric signs, large lcd displays, and led screens.
Condominium developers are also looking to take advantage of the popularity of the area. The Easton’s Group of Hotels is planning to build a new condo named ‘Dundas Square Garden’. This will consist of two towers. The main residential tower will be 47-storeys tall. The second tower will be have 16-storeys, it will have suites for residences in the upper levels and retail stores on the bottom levels. There will be a total of 767 units available for purchase in February of 2014. To learn more about the development visit this website: www.dundas-square-gardens-condos.ca.
