King West Village has one of the best selection of condominium buildings in the city. These are low and mid-rise buildings. These are designed as soft lofts with units that feature lots of light and open spaces, high ceilings, and balconies. Some of these buildings also contain two-storey loft condominium townhouses.
King Street West is considered Toronto’s Fashion District and is known for trendy restaurants, design shops, and boutique condo developments. Previously industrial, this neighborhood has undergone considerable urban development since the early 2000s.
King Street East is predominantly known as the high-end, luxury furniture district of downtown Toronto, with dozens of stores on King Street and in the surrounding area.
The Liberty Village name was introduced as a positive ‘brand’ by the property owners and developers in conjunction with the City of Toronto. The neighbourhood aims to distinguish itself from Parkdale, which now begins west of Dufferin Street.
Its location is considered one of its finest assets, a 10-minute walk to the Lakeshore, a 15-minute streetcar ride to the financial core, and a 20-minute walk from the entertainment/fashion/gallery districts of King St. West.
