Lime Ridge (branded as "CF Lime Ridge") is a two-level indoor shopping mall in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, on Upper Wentworth Street. Opened on September 13, 1981, it is the largest mall complex in the city, an 815,000-square-foot (75,700 m2) super regional shopping centre with over 213 stores including department store anchors Hudson's Bay and Sears, and five large non-majors: Home Outfitters, The Bay Home Store, Old Navy, H&M, and SportChek.

The mall, which also includes an office building, is managed by Cadillac Fairview and features four floors of office space. [1] Bell Media radio stations in Hamilton are tenants of the building.

In 1981 the Ontario Government offered to build an elevated rapid transit line from Jackson Square in downtown Hamilton, to the mall.[2] Hamilton-Wentworth Council turned the proposal down.

East Side Mario’s (opened in 1984) closed in 1997 to make way for 2 more stores. It was then moved to Upper James Street.
