North Hollywood sprang up in the 1880s as a farming village called Toluca and later Lankershim. As Hollywood took off in the ‘20s, business owners proposed renaming the town North Hollywood. Today, it’s home to the NoHo Arts District and the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. North Hollywood is a diverse area with an array of significant-sized ethnic populations. Since 2000, it has been undergoing many changes, thanks in large part to the formation of the North Hollywood Development District and NoHo Commons projects. These, along with two Metro stations that have made it a regional hub for the San Fernando Valley, are changing the community from a suburban setting into a metropolitan center. Medium- and high-density developments are being built around the Metro Station focused on creating a walkable urban village.
