Parkway Forest Drive
Parkway Forest Drive (aka Forest) is a North York neighbourhood bounded on the west by Don Mills Road, on the north by Sheppard Avenue, on the east by the Don Valley Parkway, and on the south by Highway 401. It is a dense development of high-rise rental apartment buildings, low-rise rental apartment buildings and townhouse complexes. The area has began to see an increase in criminal activitys in recent years, including the drug sweep of 25 Parkway Forest Drive apartment building by 33 division police. In early 2005, the "North York Community Council" committee of the Toronto City Council rejected a proposal to replace many of the low-rise apartment buildings and townhouses by seven high-rise towers ranging in height from 39 to 49 storeys. However, a new "affordable-housing development" has been constructed adjacent to Parkway Forest Plaza, at 121 Parkway Forest Dr. The apartment building occupies what used to be the heavily-wooded Forest Manor Park.
