the writing is on the wall
a uniquely niche neighbourhood
The Toronto, Grey and Bruce Railway and the Great Western Railway laid tracks.
Liberty Village became home to the Toronto Central Prison and the Andrew Mercer Reformatory for Women.
John Inglis and Sons opened a factory to manufacture marine steam engines and waterworks pumping engines.
John Inglis and Co. was purchased by Major J.E. Hahn, who used the site to manufacture war materials.
Post war, the company manufactured consumer products: oil burner pumps, heaters, stoves and home laundry products (now Whirlpool Canada).
The transformation of this former industrial site into the neighbourhood we all love today.

Where everything old is hot and new again, historic factories have been repurposed for contemporary uses, from places to live, gyms, local shops, trendy retail, cool restaurants, hip bars, and galleries. Part art playground, part technical hub – all a sense of freedom that boasts a unique vibrancy and urban street cred earning its fame as one of Toronto’s most happening scenes for art, eateries, hot spots and places to call home.
