When the Lawrence Heights Revitalization is completed it will consist of fifty three thousand new residential units, including condominiums, townhomes and single family homes. One of the features we're most excited is the community's commitment of going green, lots of greenspace, cycling, walking paths, schools and a community centre.
The Yorkdale Condominiums is the First Phase of Lawrence Heights Revitalization. Lawrence Heights was built in 1962 as a low-income community, based on a now-discredited model of urban design that put the focus on wide-open spaces, curving streets and cul-de-sacs, and put retail a long walk or short drive from the homes.
The announcement of The Yorkdale marks the first step in the 20-year revitalization of Lawrence Heights, which will see the demolition of the current stock of buildings on the site. All 1,208 units planned for demolition will be replaced, including 233 which will be replaced during the first phase of redevelopment alone.
The redevelopment is expected to span the course of 2 decades, with the over 100-acre site of Lawrence Heights eventually being home to 4,092 overall market units as well. Demolition for the first phase is expected to commence in Spring of 2016, after which it should be another 7-10 years until phase 1 is complete. Many high-rise pre-construction towers are coming up as well along the Allen Rd starting from Sheppard all the way down to Eglinton Ave W.
