Liberty Village represents the complete transformation of a former industrial district into one of the city’s hottest residential neighborhoods.
Surrounded on three sides by rail corridors, Liberty Village has seen its warehouses and factories converted into residential, office and retail spaces. Complementing these historic structures is a large number of luxury high-rise buildings. The neighborhood’s streets have been extensively redesigned to increase pedestrian friendliness. In addition, an extensive amount of parkland is located just to the south, as is the Canadian National Exhibition. The myriad trails along the Lake Ontario waterfront provide an excellent option for walking and biking. Lastly, several major grocery stores are now located within Liberty Village, allowing residents to complete their shopping without having to leave the neighborhood.

The Lakeshore GO line runs along the southern boundary of Liberty Village, and its Exhibition Station offers direct access to the neighborhood. The #509 Harbourfront and #511 Bathurst streetcar routes also serve the area via Exhibition Loop. The #504 King streetcar is a short walk to the north. Additionally, the #63 Ossington bus provides frequent service along Ossington and Strachan Avenues. Upon its completion, the new Ontario Line will also feature a station in the neighborhood.
