Lawrence West Subway Station

Lawrence West Subway Station

The Lawrence West station is located on the Yonge – University – Spadina line of the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC).  It was opened in February 1978 and serves about 20,000 people a day.

In 2008, Lawrence West was also reported as a “problem station” (see Lansdowne) but that has since changed.  Lawrence West station has bus lines that provide regular service to the Toronto Pearson International Airport (58 Malton) bus.
Lawrence Square Shopping Centre

Nearby the Lawrence Square Shopping Centre was packed today when we went to do some last minute shopping (and of course my photographs!)  It is one of Toronto’s largest malls.  Some big box store names are Canadian Tire, Zellers and Fortino’s.  This mall was once a Simpson’s warehouse back in the early 1980’s.  I do remember shopping there, but that had been since replaced by the current mall.

Eventually this mall will be replaced by more public housing and an extension of Marlee Avenue.  The retail outlets will then take the place of two nearby public schools that will be demolished.
