A massive development that will transform a key stretch of Yonge Street in Thornhill has generated a flurry of buyer interest, as subway expansion and other transit improvements better connect the 905 to the downtown core.

Stretching along Yonge’s east side between Steeles and Clark avenues — both proposed stops for a northbound extension of the Yonge subway line — the 10-acre site also benefits from expansions to the VIVA bus system.

The World on Yonge project, slated for completion in 2013, will consist of four residential high-rise towers, an office complex with hotel facilities, a retail centre, and a park and landscaped courtyard. At 20 storeys, the office building will be the tallest in York Region, the developer says.

Some buyers camped out overnight in their cars to ensure a prime spot when the sales office opened this week.
