Liberty Village

LIBERTY VILLAGE AT A GLANCE

Liberty Village: Vibrant, urban, young and dynamic. A perfect neighbourhood for those who are looking for cutting edge architecture and affordable pricing.

One of the oldest settlements in Toronto. Established in 1790’s by the British it quickly became a base for Canadian military in a battle against our southern neighbour. Liberty Village is a constantly-evolving object lesson in reinvention. The railway tracks that can be seen today at the south border of the neighbourhood were built in 1850s to boost the development of a residential-focused community. However, tracks brought heavy industry instead, leading to the construction of huge factories and warehouses. When shipping shifted from rail to semi-trucks, these spacious buildings were sold off and repurposed as super cool lofts featuring industrial and minimalistic styles. With a walk score of 92 and transit score of 98, Liberty Village has become a paradise for young professionals working in the media and tech industries.

Describe A Perfect Day in Liberty Village

To kickstart our morning, we like to stop by Balzac’s Coffee Roasters, located on the ground floor of the Toy Factory Lofts, for a cup of potent espresso and a casual sit down with the morning emails or a friendly chat. Named after Honore de Balzac, the 19th century French novelist and big coffee lover, Balzac’s atmosphere envelops you with Parisian vibe, the only thing that is missing to feel like in Paris a view of the Eiffel Tower. Then, we toss a coin deciding where to go: watch a soccer game at Lamport Stadium or, if we feel super active and excited we might stroll to climb and boulder at Joe Rockheads, one of Toronto’s best rock climbing facilities. For lunch, we’re all about the legendary B’LUNCH dishes at Mildred’s Temple Kitchen, a favorite of not only the “local villagers”, but also foodies across Toronto. Following our yummy lunch, we might discover the new trends of industrial style design at West Elm and EQ3. Trust us, as soon as you enter these home decor temples, you will want to burn all of your existing furniture. You will find everything needed for upgrading your interior design here: modern armchairs, unique lighting options, minimalistic beds or even hand-stitched duvet covers. After our inspirational shopping, we usually call our friends who live who live nearby and getting ready for dinner. An amazing dinner option here is Caffino, an Italian classic restaurant with fresh pizza, pasta, antipasti and a rustic warehouse atmosphere. Evening usually continues with friendly debate about whether we are going to Toronto’s Entertainment District, Air Canada Centre or Rogers Centre — all just a few minutes away.
