The Englemount–Lawrence neighbourhood in central Toronto is defined by Bathurst Street on the east, Hillhurst Boulevard on the south, Allen Road on the west and Highway 401 on the north. Englemount and Lawrence homes were part of the City of North York until the 1998 amalgamation of five cities and one borough into the new City of Toronto.

Englemount is just south of Lawrence Avenue and is an area of mostly modest homes. The area is a predominantly Jewish community with most housing developments constructed in the 1950s. In recent years, the face of Engelmount-Lawrence has been changing gradually with some of the old structures replaced with luxurious and stately renovations.

The housing inventory consists of detached and semi-detached homes of mostly modernist, stone and brick construction. Some low to mid-rise apartments still exist along with aging social housing that are targeted for redevelopment.

Students who reside in the area may attend the public schools of Glen Park, Flemington Public and Baycrest along with John Polanyi Collegiate Institute. The area is also served by a number of private schools including nine Jewish day schools and a Catholic school for girls.

The area’s proximity to the retail district on Bathurst Street and Lawrence Plaza on the west gives residents easy access to many shops. Restaurants and stores frequented by locals include the Dairy Treats European Café and Bakery and Daiter’s Fresh Market, a family-managed grocery.

Green space and public parks include Baycrest Park on the northwest, Viewmount Park on the southwest sector and Rajah Park located on the northeast.

The Engelmount-Lawrence community is slated for major facelift as the Lawrence-Allen revitalization project proceeds with the upgrading of social housing in the Lawrence Heights neighbourhood. New retail stores and improved public spaces including bicycle trails and walking paths are expected.

This area will continue to draw interest because of its location within the Toronto metropolitan area as well as excellent access to public transportation and Ontario’s highway network.
