Liberty Village real estate is as interesting as it’s name, which comes from the prison reform and shutting down of the neighbourhoods Toronto’s Central Prison in 1915. The street that the prisoners, when released, would walk on, was dubbed Liberty Street. Ever since that glorious day, this trendy industrial complex has been on the radar as one of the hottest neighbourhood’s in Toronto. The neighbourhood has since gone through somewhat of a real estate revitalization, and still more recently, gentrification of the area, extending from downtown Toronto.
The entertainment district is located around King Street West, West Queen West, Ossington, Dundas Street West and Wellington Street West. The financial district is only a couple of minutes walk away from Liberty Village, and the entertainment district is only a 10 minute walk. Liberty Village is also within walking distance to Niagara, Trinity Bellwoods and Parkdale. The location of this prestigious neighbourhood has long been considered a valuable resource. Many of the old factories have been remodelled and made into valuable Liberty Village real estate including lofts and condominiums, while others have been transformed into restaurants, gyms, furniture stores and galleries. This neighbourhood has become a haven for young professionals and artists who have moved west in favour of less established areas that are still close to the core of Toronto.
Liberty Village real estate is an amalgamation of the 1900s’ turn of the century industrial architecture, design, technology, media and marketing companies. At it’s core is Liberty Market which has an eclectic mix of businesses including, a wide variety of retail stores, technology and marketing firms, and design and media firms. The future outlook for Liberty Village seems to be optimistic, as 20 new restaurants have opened in the last 3 years and real estate prices continue to rise. The neighbourhood is seemingly primed and ready for another major revitalization. By far, this is a superb neighbourhood for the young couple getting established in life as well as the older couple looking for a place to retire. Liberty Village real estate is a solid investment and Liberty Village is an excellent place to live.
