Contents

The neighbourhood

Formerly a much larger neighbourhood, the neighbourhood of Willowdale now occupies the area to the north. Lansing is now bordered by Yonge Street to the east, Highway 401 to the south, Bathurst Street to the west and Burnett Avenue to the north.

The neighbourhood can even be broken down further with Lansing occupying the northeastern quadrant and Armour Heights the southwest section.

Households

Homes in the neighbourhoods are largely owned and occupied by single families. The many mature pine trees in the neighbourhood and Don River, which effectively separate Armour Heights and Lansing provide a calm to a neighbourhood which is such close proximity to Toronto's Highway 401.

People

There is a substantial Canadian population in the neighbourhood. A large percentage of the population is still in their working years, which ensure the trend of high income earners will likely persist.
