Liberty Village Station is located along the northern boundary of Liberty Village. In addition to the reseidents of Liberty, it would also service the residents of King West, located just north of the GO Weston tracks. The station provides a connection for both the 504 King streetcar and the 508 Lakeshore streetcar as well as the 63+ Ossington bus. Liberty Village Station would provide riders with quick access to the CNE, including BMO field where Toronto FC plays, as well as the Centre for Addition and Mental Health.

Liberty Village was established in 2001 and is now known as one of Toronto’s newest destination spots. It is home to more than 5 000 employees and the community feel of the area is attracting more residents to the area at a very fast pace103. The population density is expected to grow by 96% from 2006 to 2014. There are 5 condos currently under construction, along with another 6 proposed condos, within 500 m of the station.

There is limited area remaining for redevelopment around Liberty Village. There are new construction plans already proposed for the free areas in and around the area.

Liberty Village is a work and residential community that will see ridership increase as the area continues to be redeveloped. The station will alleviate a lot of the volume seen on the 504 King streetcar, particularly during Toronto’s rush hour, as well as provide access to local attractions such as Liberty Village, the CNE, and BMO Field.
