Toy Factory Lofts at 43 Hanna Avenue
Convenient, premium, and ultra-contemporary: Toy Factory Lofts is one of the most sought-after loft projects in the city.
The Price Point
1 Bedroom + Den:
Constructed from a converted heritage property in 2008, Toy Factory Lofts is known for its low maintenance fees, well-managed condo board, and uniqueness among the rest of Liberty Village’s cookie-cutter condos.
The building has 213 units over 8 storeys and it’s loaded with amenities, including a lounge, courtyard, rooftop terrace with a hot tub, building-wide wireless network, and private meeting room. Yet its maintenance fees are ultra-low since the building’s condo board voted to keep fees at 31 cents per square foot and they’ve stayed there since 2012.
Toy Factory lofts have hardwood floors, exposed brick and ductwork, wood ceilings, and industrial track lighting. Designer appliances and cabinetry, granite countertops, and premium features add to Toy Factory’s appeal. Warehouse windows and Juliet balconies round out Toy Factory as one of Toronto’s best loft buildings.
The units are also surprisingly large – the smallest semi-bachelor is 655 square feet and the largest is over 3,000. Only the upper units have outdoor space, but the shared amenities make up for it.
More campus than neighbourhood, the enclosed Liberty Village contains everything you need: groceries, yoga studios, hip bars, buzzing brunch spots, cute cafes, and lots of open workspaces. Grab brunch at School or enjoy a fresh craft beer at the always-busy Local Public Eatery.
Lamport Stadium is the destination for sports-players, but otherwise, there’s very little green space in the neighbourhood. This may be difficult for pet owners, but Liberty’s BIA is looking to improve this state of cement.
Most residents are young professionals without kids or with very young kids. Lots of residents work in the area or directly downtown, making the streetcar a little crowded, but the neighbourhood is hopping.
