Championing and Nurturing a Creative and Vibrant Community
Once a jumble of factories that drove the industrial era, Liberty Village is now a centre of entrepreneurship and creativity. Known for its “work / play / live” environment and interesting architectural character, Liberty Village is one of Toronto's newest destination spots.
As a unique employment BIA, the Liberty Village BIA represents more than 500 businesses, and 7,000 employees, in information technology, arts, design, entertainment and media. This walkable, campus-style community is located just west of downtown Toronto at King and Dufferin streets. It is accessible by TTC, GO Transit, and Toronto's waterfront bicycle and pedestrian routes.
The LVBIA champions and nurtures this vibrant community through creative projects and activities. The annual Give Me Liberty Afterwork Party takes place in June, giving the people who work, live and play in Liberty Village an opportunity to meet their neighbours. BENCHmark transforms old park benches into permanent works of public art. Many famous restaurateurs along with new retail are now calling Liberty Village home. My Market Liberty Village brings fresh Ontario farm produce here on Sunday mornings, June through November.
Liberty Village has changed from desolate to desirable, and the changes keep happening.
