Welcome to Suite 1314 at 150 East Liberty Street!
Liberty Village is located on one of Toronto’s oldest settlements. Originally an industrial area, it flourished in the 1920s thanks to proximity to the railway tracks as well as a plentiful labour force from nearby Parkdale. In the late 1970s and early 1980s manufacturing operations within Liberty Village began to decline and the decreased industrial activity along with lower property values caused many buildings to fall into neglect.
As the factories moved out, condo developers moved in. And as the ongoing gentrification of downtown Toronto pushed farther outwards from the core, Liberty Village has become one of Toronto’s best neighbourhoods for young professionals, artists and creative types.
The neighbourhood combines high-rise condominiums, mid-rise buildings, and townhomes with retail spaces for cafes, restaurants, shops, and art galleries, while still maintaining its historic roots; the preserved smoke stacks projecting from the old buildings now serving as the neighbourhood landmarks. The gritty and urban feel to the area remains. The old warehouses were converted into cool offices attracting many know tech and film production companies, and the former factories were turned into lofts settled by a growing residential community.
No need for a car here - just a desire to stroll - destination in mind or not - because the possibilities are plentiful. One of the finest assets of this area is its proximity to the Core and top-notch amenities. Downtown Toronto is just a 15-minute ride away on the King Streetcar, and a 10-minute walk will land you on the Waterfront Trail to the south or in the trendy Queen West neighbourhood to the north east. A similar stroll will land you in the much-loved Trinity Bellwoods Park, which offers a community recreation centre (including swimming pool!), an off-leash dog walking zone, a weekly organic market, tennis courts, meandering hillocks, and loads of pop-up community events like the Queen West Art Crawl. This park fulfills all your greenest desires in the middle of an urban environment!
Liberty Village has a bit of the ‘suburb-in-the-city’ flavour, boasting a host of conveniences like a 24-hour Metro grocer, an LCBO, a Beer Store, a 24-hour Goodlife Fitness, and a multitude of shops, restaurants, and bars nearby. This means residents of Liberty Village barely have to leave their front door to enjoy all the perks of city living. Get your morning coffee from Balzac’s, spend the afternoon tackling the walls at Joe Rockheads, or spend an evening enjoying drinks and bites at the new Local Public Eatery. It’s all just steps from this Home!

Located off the living space, the sleeping sanctuary provides a welcome respite after long work days or for tired feet after trying to keep pace with city life! Even someone who loves the 'bright lights, big city' experience needs to curl up and cocoon in their own oasis now and then, so just close the frosted sliding doors - allowing only the softest glow of daylight to filter through - and take some "me time"! What's more, this loft has a ensuite laundry and a pristine 4-piece spa-like bath - perfect for rejuvenation!
