Lansing

The Neighbourhood

The neighbourhood Lansing has great appeal. It is located in a quiet, tranquil corner of North York, yet its close proximity to major thoroughfares such as Yonge Street and Highway 401 make it conveniently accessible, either by car or by transit.

Lansing is full of beautiful, old mature trees and is surrounded by lots of green space, yet it is close to all of the top-notch shopping and entertainment that is desirable with city living.

What also makes it such an attractively peaceful place to live is the lack of through-traffic on many streets that has been the result of condo development near Yonge Street; the streets that once intersected with Beecroft Road have been converted into dead-ends. As well, the Don River creates a natural boundary along the west side, turning the whole area into a type of cul-de-sac.

Are you charmed by the houses and family-friendly life of this neighbourhood? Let Liisa help you find your new home.
