At the turn of the 20th century, Liberty Village was an area heavily populated by industrial buildings, including the Irwin Toy Factory. When the factory was converted into 215 condominium lofts by Toronto firm Quadrangle Architects, they preserved the building’s distinctive historic features while updating it with modern amenities. The authentic hard lofts boast some ofToronto’s oldest exposed brick walls, steel ceiling beams and Douglas Fir posts which provide each loft with an unrivalled sense of character.
Varying in size from 689 to 2,120 sq. ft., Toy Factory Lofts are luxury spaces with ceilings as high as 16 feet. In addition to the lofts, the building also houses a fully equipped fitness centre, an outdoor terrace with a hot tub, a sauna, a meeting room and a lounge. The interiors, designed by II by IV Design Associates, are prime examples of sophisticated minimalism.
Liberty Villageis one ofToronto’s hottest neighbourhoods and Toy Factory Lofts are the only bona fide loft conversions within its parameters. In the last 5 years, the community has seen exceptional development including gyms, restaurants, coffee shops and a 24-hour grocery store.
Ivy grows up the walls of neighbouring design studios and boutique stores line the cobblestone alleyway of Liberty Market. Easily accessible to downtownToronto,LibertyVillageis a unique pocket of the city that feels new, but just like the Toy Factory Lofts onHana Avenue, is elegantly steeped in the past.
