About Liberty Village
As with real estate throughout the city of Toronto, in recent years due to spectacular growth, there has been much interest in the liberty village area and in the homes and condos for sale in Liberty Village.
Located north of King Street West and south of the Gardiner Expressway, Liberty Village is one of Toronto’s earliest settlements. Its namesake, Liberty Street, cuts directly through the neighbourhood, and was established next to Fort York, an area founded just south of the community that was rooted by the British military in 1793. Once separated from the rest of The City of Toronto by the Great Western Railway, this area, once laid out to immediately become a residential area, became a booming industrial site. In 1873, the Toronto Central Prison opened and remained in use for just over forty years. Provincial Secretary William John Hanna changed all that in 1915, demolishing a large portion of the area, including the prison, save a paint shop and church, and, in line with the name of this now neighbourhood, Liberty Street was the first street released convicts would walk free.
This unique area is now converted into being one of the trendiest neighbourhoods for young professionals and artists. Now offering new condominiums, lofts, office spaces and parks, this area is one of Toronto’s most up and coming neighbourhoods. It also boasts and expansive market for your convenience. This area continues to grow with its residents, featuring a mix of cafes and restaurants, all with views of the city and the infamous CN Tower on the skyline without having to be in the rush of downtown Toronto life; this is the ideal place for the young working professional or a new family.
