Neighborhood's Unchecked Facelift Highlights Poor Planning
"Despite its successes, Liberty Village illustrates everything that's wrong with planning in Toronto."
"The former industrial district, which then became a favoured area for artist studios, is now being gentrified at a fast and furious rate. Although some of the individual projects are excellent, the city has failed to ensure that they add up to a genuine neighbourhood."
"Wandering the streets of Liberty Village, one is saddened to encounter one huge parking lot after another; they suck the life out of the precinct and give that hardscrabble look you might expect in an industrial park."
