Once a gritty industrial area, Liberty Village has become a sought after address by Toronto young urban professionals. While historic factory buildings still dot the area, many have been converted for contemporary uses, from cool lofts to even cooler restaurants and bars. Centred on the Liberty Market Building, this neighbourhood is where Toronto’s young urban professionals choose to live, work and play.
Just across the tracks from BMO Field, Liberty Village is the best place for post-game celebrations following a Toronto FC victory. After every game, neighbourhood sports bars are packed to the brim with fans sporting their red scarves.
Although the old buildings are a testament to Liberty Village’s industrial past, the west end of the neighbourhood is now a hotbed for a whole variety of fresh companies, from digital firms to advertising agencies to tech startups. An emerging art scene and modern eateries make this area desirable for residents and visitors alike.
