Liberty Village has become one of the most sought after Toronto neighborhoods; not only from potential home buyers but also from developers! This neighborhood has a splash of the old mixed with a bit of the new, watch the video below and you will see why so many people are in a hurry to move in.
If Liberty Village is not your cup of tea and you would like to buy a Toronto Condo or Loft in a different part of town feel free to roam around until you find your flavor!
King West and Liberty Village have become two very trendy neighbourhoods in Downtown Toronto, where both neighbourhoods have seen home values sky rocket over from the early 2000's decade and is not slowing down. Local Condo developers have made huge strides in helping form the two neighbourhoods which have helped stimulate the local economy.

King Street is a major east-west commercial thoroughfare in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It was named after King George III, the reigning British monarch at the time the street was being built in early Toronto (then called the Town of York).
The street runs from The Queensway, splitting off to the south-east at Queen Street West and Roncesvalles Avenue in the west, to the Don River where it ends at Queen St. in the east. Unofficially King Street crossed the Don at an abandoned steel and concrete bridge. On the west side the roadway is now Eastern Avenue and Cypress Street. East of the Don, a short stretch begins as Sunlight Park Road and then as Eastern Avenue to Kingston Road. Yonge Street, the north-south divider of many Toronto east-west streets, divides King Street into King Street East and King Street West.
King Street is also served along its entire length by the Toronto Transit Commission's 504 King streetcar route, the busiest line in the fleet with an average of 50,000 passengers per day. It connects with the Yonge-University-Spadina subway line at St. Andrew Station at University Avenue, and at King Station at Yonge Street. It connects with the Bloor-Danforth subway line at Dundas West and Broadview stations. The street is also served by the 508 Lake Shore car.
In recent years there has been a proliferation of chic restaurants, clubs and galleries in the area (such as West, Brant House, Susur, Senses Bar and Restaurant, Thuet Cuisine, Lux, Old Yorke Pub and Grill, the Navarro Gallery etc.) as King Street West becomes more oriented to Toronto's nightlife crowd, and is near major attractions such as the Rogers Centre (formerly Skydome), Air Canada Centre, The Distillery District, Hockey Hall of Fame, Roy Thomson Hall, Hummingbird Centre, St. Lawrence Market and the historic King Edward Hotel.
Canada's Walk of Fame runs along King Street from John Street to Simcoe Street and south on Simcoe. It is a tribute in granite to Canadians who have gained fame in the fields of music, literature, journalism, dance, sports, acting, entertainment and broadcasting.
King Street East is predominantly known as the high-end, luxury furniture district of downtown Toronto, with dozens of stores on King Street and in the surrounding area
Liberty Village is a neighbourhood in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is bounded at the north by King Street West, the west by Dufferin Street, the south by the Gardiner Expressway, the east by Strachan Avenue, and the northeast by the CP railway tracks. The Liberty Village name was introduced as a positive 'brand' by the property owners and developers in the area in conjunction with the City of Toronto. The neighbourhood aims to distinguish itself from Parkdale, which now begins west of Dufferin Street. Its location is considered one of its finest assets being a 15 minute walk to the Lakeshore, 20 minute streetcar ride to the financial core and a 20 minute walk from the entertainment/fashion/gallery districts of King St. West.
Partly because of this, Liberty Village has experienced phenomenal growth from 2004 to the present in terms of new condos/lofts, office space, a new park, and a multitude of new shops and restaurants. It has been dubbed by many the "hottest" neighbourhood in Toronto.

The ongoing gentrification of downtown Toronto has been pushing farther outwards from downtown (see Queen Street West, Niagara, Distillery District), encouraging rapid development. It has become a trendy neighbourhood for young professionals and artists pushing farther west for less established areas, while still remaining a short walk or streetcar ride from the core. Many old factories have been repurposed as lofts while others have become restaurants, gyms, furniture stores and galleries, as this area was primarily a former heavy industrial area.
The industrial building that used to house a paper company and up until 2003, the Irwin Toy Factory, was converted into industrial residential lofts and mixed commercial use spaces. The Toronto Carpet Factory Building on Mowat Avenue and its surrounding campus of industrial structures is an example of 1900s' turn of the century industrial architecture and currently houses a mixture of design, technology, media and marketing companies. Old storage and factory spaces at Liberty Street and Hanna Avenue were converted into commercial spaces in the 1980s and 1990s, and they comprise Liberty Market. The Market houses design firms and collectives, media, technology and marketing firms, and an eclectic mix of retail stores. Structures from the old Inglis Factory and the former Massey Ferguson Head Office surround the heart of Liberty Village, further testifying to the industrial history of the neighbourhood.
Artscape, a non-profit urban development organization that revitalizes buildings, neighbourhoods, and cities through the arts has a strong presence in Liberty Village, providing mixed live/work spaces for local artists. Its influence can be seen throughout the neighbourhood and maintains the valued tradition of a neighbourhood that was once dominated by artists searching for affordable living and studio spaces.
Liberty Village is known for its successful Art and Design studios, but media and technology companies also have a strong presence in the community. Many Canadian and US design and technology firms have located to Liberty Village, creating many jobs for the increasing number of citizens that have moved into the growing neighbourhood.
Offices are mostly concentrated in the west end of Liberty Village. New residential developments are currently focused on East Liberty Street, which begins east of Hanna Avenue. Over 20 new restaurants have opened in the past 3 years, providing the residents and workers in the community with many eclectic places to dine and enjoy their developing neighbourhood.
Liberty Village's name comes from its central street, Liberty St. named in honour of a historic prison reform, the initiative of then Provincial Secretary William John Hanna who forced the closure of Toronto's Central Prison located north of the CNE and west of Strachan Avenue in 1915. Before it closed, the Andrew Mercer Reformatory for Women used to be on the site where Lamport Stadium currently stands. The street where the prisoners, when released, would directly walk on to became known as -- "Liberty Street".

This Toronto neighborhood deserves some props as it has grown in being a fan favorite among young professionals across the GTA plus the suburban guy who wants to live in the city but loves having a newer type condo or loft that you can easily find in the outskirts of the city. If this fits your description than Liberty Village is the place for you.
As a Re/Max Toronto Realtor, it's great to see the old being transformed and ignited by the new; watching certain neighborhoods’ flourish after many years of almost becoming waste land.
The Toy Factory is a unique conversion condo revamped by Lanterna Homes in downtown Toronto, and it’s a great toy that any grown up would gladly take as a gift for Christmas.
Why The Toy Factory is one my favorite conversion lofts in Toronto and a hot spot for most young professionals. Toy Factory Lofts is a pioneering conversion from the original historic Irwin Toy factory to an urban mixed-use live-work complex containing 215 originally designed live-work lofts with over 20,000 square feet of commercial space.
I thought to myself what kind of information of real value could I share with the locals? And than it came to me, the same information that consumers call everyday asking about. The big question at the moment is inventory levels and how it's affecting our marketplace. What better bit of knowledge could you give someone living in a specific neighborhood like Liberty Village or even Little Italy as inventory is down by a huge amount. So I walked up to a door and said "hi I'm Vincent from Re/Max West and I wanted to share a little bit of info with you regarding the current number of listings in your neighborhood."
