150 East Liberty Street Condos
In a hot condo market, Liberty Place in Liberty Village lets off a cool vibe draws visitors far and wide. The façade itself is a marvel of glass and steel transparency at the top level while below is an artful mixture of concrete, masonry, and metal details that hark back to the region’s industrial days. The 30-storey structure has 433 units (including two-storey lofts) from IBI Group Architects for CanAlfa and is a perfect complement for surrounding towers. When Walter Jensen, the developer, first started projects in this part of town, he had a vision of a complete work and play lifestyle. He selected a prime location south of King Street between Strachan and Dufferin so the residential community would be close to lush green spaces, cool bars, restaurants and coffee shops on the Ossington strip, fitness centers, banks, and more.
He knew that this is what the modern trendsetter wants to see, do, and experience; and it is found in Queen West. There are plenty of outdoor activities along the Lakeshore, Harbourfront Centre, the ACC, and the pathways of the Martin Goodman Trail. The best of the city is just a short walk, cycle, or cab ride away. The great location also offers easy access to major transportation corridors, including the 24-hour Queen streetcar line and the Gardiner Expressway. Now a true community, Liberty Village today boasts a 24-hour Metro stop.
The distinctive architecture of Liberty Place, the design of its interior spaces and a state-of-the-art amenity package with great fitness and recreational areas together make it easy to see why condo buyers lined up for their chance to live in Liberty when it opened in 2014. There is much to admire. It boasts of a spacious lounge, meeting and party rooms, guest suites, and a fully-equipped gym. Word got out about the stellar views. They loved the high ceilings, full-time concierge, complete security system, frosted glass doors, and the ultimate in designer-inspired kitchens – all located in a one-of-a-kind cool neighbourhood. Trendy types adore the building art gallery.
CanAlfa is the company widely recognized for pioneering this downtown neighbourhood.
The success of the previous local projects, and those built by other developers in Liberty Village, meant growing values, even in a very competitive market. For the team at CanAlfa, the response to the launch of Liberty Place was the realization of a dream.
