The New Lawrence Heights: Project Overview
The original Lawrence Heights community was completed in 1962. It consisted of large, nondescript blocks of community housing, cookie-cutter detached homes, and a confusing web of dead-end streets. Construction crews began demolishing it in 2018, preparing for an innovative new 100-acre (40.5-hectare) master-planned development to rise in its place.
The New Lawrence Heights is a townhome community that will serve as the centerpiece of the area’s revitalization. Built on a 25-acre (10.1-hectare) plot of land on Ranee Avenue near Flemingdon Road, these new North Toronto homes will include:
- 224 three-storey freehold townhouses
- Layouts ranging from three to five bedrooms
- Two-car parking with every unit
These row-style freehold townhouses are to be located just east of the Yorkdale Condominiums, a new high-density development that sold out very quickly. Due to the revitalization project’s high profile (as well as the promising future of Lawrence Heights as a whole), developers and industry experts anticipate The New Lawrence Heights to generate similar results.
Comparisons have been made to the sweeping overhaul of Regent Park-one of the most successful revitalization projects in Toronto in the past few decades. While the project will take years to reach full completion, it will result in a walkable, mixed-income, mixed-use, and highly connected community.
These new North Toronto homes will benefit from Lawrence Heights’ strategic location just west of the Allen Road expressway. The New Lawrence Heights will be situated just off the 401 and within easy walking distance of the Yorkdale TTC subway station. It is also very well-served by multiple local TTC bus lines. Developers and entrepreneurs will enhance its already strong convenience profile, which is highlighted by Yorkdale Shopping Centre and a strong collection of local businesses and restaurants.
Once complete, the sweeping redevelopment project is expected to achieve numerous economic and social objectives:
- A total of approximately 5,000 new homes will completely revitalize the area
- All 1,200-plus existing community housing units will be replaced
- The creation of thousands of new jobs
- The City of Toronto will build state-of-the-art community facilities
- A mixed-use, mixed-income demographic profile will create one of the city’s most diverse, inclusive, and interconnected communities
Best of all, these new North Toronto homes are affordably priced, as the developers are intent on preserving Lawrence Heights’ accessibility to people of varying income levels.
