Liberty Village’s name comes from its central street, Liberty St. named in honour of a historic prison reform. The street where the prisoners, when released, would directly walk on to became known as — “Liberty Street”. 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 become a trendy neighbourhood for young professionals and artists pushing farther west, 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 Toy Factory, was converted into industrial residential lofts and mixed commercial use spaces. It has been dubbed by many the “hottest” neighbourhood in Toronto and has solidified itself as one of the most desirable real estate markets in Toronto.
