Liberty Village real estate is some of the most desired real estate in Toronto by young professionals and young families.
Liberty Village was once part of the Garrison Common in the 1700s and early 1800s. The Garrison Common was a military fort for the Town of York (before it became Toronto). During the Battle of York in 1813, the historic Fort York was used at the base for the Canadian militia.
During the 1850s, various industries were attracted to the area by the arrival of the railway, resulting in the construction of factories and warehouses. Many of these buildings have since been converted into stylish lofts, live/work spaces as well as studios. Liberty Village supposedly got its name from the Central Prison and the Mercer Reformatory for Women which were located in Liberty Village in the late 1800s and early 1900s. In particular, “Liberty Street” got its name due to it being the first ground prisoners would set foot on upon being released.
Today, Liberty Village real estate consists of a variety of high-rise condos, townhouses and historical buildings that have been converted into lofts and trendy office space. Liberty Village has its very own grocery store, restaurants, gym, LCBO and a wide variety of shops. The area is known for its young and trendy residents. During the summer months, you will find the streets busy with luxury vehicles, dog walkers, cyclists and baby strollers. The community is also home to several festivals and markets throughout the spring, summer and fall months. With a large number of newly built condominiums, this is a great community for first time buyers and for individuals who enjoy the low maintenance and flexibility of living in a condominium.

The neighbourhood also includes a large number of townhouses that are ideal for young families who are in need of slightly more space or for those who prefer the layout of house versus a condo. Liberty Village is a great community for young professionals, young families, couples, singles and students.
