Just past Strachan Ave, where East Liberty St becomes Ordnance St, lies an exciting new extension of Liberty Village. Whether you coin the neighbourhood Garrison Crossing, Garrison Common, Garrison Point or maintain that Ordnance St is STILL Liberty Village territory, everyone can agree that more restaurants, housing, shops and fitness centres brings more opportunities to the entire neighbourhood.
Speaking of sparkling new fitness centres – you might have heard from all the buzz, or maybe you saw the glowing letters on the 25 Ordnance St building. Either way, we’re here to tell you the exciting news! A massive, two-storey, 89,000 sqft (yes, you read that right) fitness club called Altea Active is set to open their doors November 2021.
