The main portion of the Lawrence Heights community, lies in the northwest end of central Toronto, however it’s in the North York district. It is bound by Dufferin Street to the west, Highway 401 to the north, Allen Road to the east and Lawrence Avenue to the south.
This neighbourhood is an advantageous community in which to live because of its libraries, schools and ample green space. There is a great deal of options for shopping, particularly at Lawrence Square, Yorkdale Shopping Centre, and along Orfus Road. This vibrant community is made up of a diverse group of people with a strong sense of community. The average income for the area is $32,256 with a population of 3,769 residents.

The neighbourhood is undergoing a major transformation and redevelopment within its community. It plans to implement new open spaces, public parkettes, a school, a community centre, and a large vital park. The streetscape will be improved with up to 5,000 square metres of new commercial space, which has been zoned for retailers and offices with the intention of infusing pedestrian vibrancy to an area that has remained economically and socially isolated from the rest of the GTA. A number of new mid to high-rise condominium buildings and townhouses will be injected into the neighbourhood as well.
The revitalization program is expected to create at least 5,600 jobs. The city plans to replace all 1,208 community housing units, while also adding 4,902 new market condo apartments and townhomes. This will create a mixed income neighbourhood that will invite an influx of density, thereby transforming the urban fabric of this community into a desirable location to live.

The neighbourhood lays adjacent to the Baycrest Health Sciences centre. This facility specializes in geriatric healthcare and research, it also works in partnership with the University of Toronto as a clinical training program - meaning this neighbourhood is a good choice for many students.
