TOY FACTORY LOFTS – 43 Hanna Avenue
Date Registered (2008-11-28)
Where once thousands of toys were produced, young urbanites now clamour for the chance to live in one of the 218 unique hard lofts at the Toy Factory Lofts on Hanna Avenue. Built in the 1900’s as the Irwin Toy Factory, this eight storey building was Canada’s oldest toy factory. Now, it houses one and two bedroom lofts, many of which also have dens. Ranging from 655 to 3,082 square feet, there’s plenty of space for your own style at the Toy Factory Lofts.
The condos at the Toy Factory remind residents of the building’s illustrious industrial past. The thick brick walls are perfectly complemented by warm wooden floors and Douglas fir posts. Above, the soaring ceilings are girded with steel beams. Large warehouse windows let in loads of natural sunlight and provide remarkable views of the Liberty Village streets below.
The Toy Factory Lofts Amenities
43 Hanna Avenue offers a charming natural setting for mind-cleansing wanders, both inside and out! Inside, there’s a landscaped atrium lit by overhead skylights, and outside, there’s a well-manicured courtyard. There’s also a rooftop terrace with a hot tub, perfect for relaxing in the fresh air and sunlight. You can also enjoy the onsite fitness centre, which includes change rooms and a sauna.
You can also meet up with neighbours in the community rooms, including a party room, a meeting room, and a business centre, all of which are perfectly equipped for a variety of gatherings. Parking is available for residents and guests alike, and guest suites are available for visitors who might be staying awhile. Additionally, pets are welcome at the Toy Factory Lofts.
Liberty Village Neighbourhood
Liberty Village still shows many traces of its roots as an industrial area. Just like the Toy Factory Lofts, warehouses in the area are being transformed into living spaces and studios for the artistic folks who enjoy the bohemian vibe of the area. The Liberty Village neighbourhood, in fact, is one of the most cohesive neighbourhoods in the GTA, with many members of the community participating in the Liberty Village Residents’ Association, connecting folks from all corners of the neighbourhood to drive community goals and initiatives.
With this inspired sense of neighbourly commitment, it’s no surprise that a walk out the door of the Toy Factory Lofts, down Hanna Avenue and onto one of the main streets will lead to a full day of excitement. It might be best to pick up a coffee from Balzac’s Liberty Village, which shares a footprint with the Toy Factory Lofts. Across Hanna Avenue become a regular at 3 Brewers Liberty or cross East Liberty Street and pull up a stool at Local Liberty Village Pub. Both are known for inspired drinks and delightful pub fare, so you might want to take turns between the two.
Anything you might need is just a short distance from Hanna Avenue. Having a celebration? Grab a dessert from For the Love of Cake Custom Creations and party supplies from Bulk Barn. Need to pick up some quick household items? Try Your Dollar Store with More or Liberty Pharmacy. Craving fresh produce? Check out Mymarket Liberty Village Farmers Market. Need some quality entertainment? This one’s going to be hard, because there are so many options. Check out a show at Coca-Cola Coliseum. Catch the game at Allan A Lamport Stadium. Take in some new trivia at MZTV Museum of Television. In fact, the lake is just a few blocks south- perhaps a day trip is in order!
Following Hanna Avenue to East Liberty Street will lead you to the green space formed by Liberty Village Park, Bill Johnston Park, and Gateway Park. Granted, this direction passes past Williams Landing, Brazen Head Irish Pub, and Ciao Europa Wine Bar, so the temptation to deviate from exercise might be strong, but the paths are perfect for a long walk or run.
With an artsy flair and a history of productivity, the Liberty Village neighbourhood is now full of devoted community members who keep the industrious, creative impetus alive. While the Toy Factory Lofts condos pay homage to this tradition, the Liberty Village neighbourhood welcomes the present with a vibrant, imaginative lifestyle for all.
