If you’ve lived in Liberty Village for a while you’ve probably seen it change quite a bit over the past decade, with lots of new residential buildings as well as the reinvention of many commercial buildings.
Most recently, you may have noticed one the newest additions to our commercial landscape at the corner of Atlantic and Liberty St. This new addition is a project by Hullmark and could be considered the “sister” building to another of Hullmark’s projects, 60 Atlantic, most commonly known for being the home to Big Rock Brewing and their stunning patio.
Hullmark is also the development company that reinvented the iconic Toronto Carpet Factory, once home to The Toronto Manufacturing Company, Limited. It is now home to many different businesses here in Liberty Village. The building still boasts much of its original design like the tall windows, soaring ceilings, and original craftsmanship and materials from the 1800s.
While the Toronto Carpet Factory pays homage to the past, 80 Atlantic pays homage to the future. 80 Atlantic, situated on the east side of 60 Atlantic boasts a large courtyard between the two buildings, which is also home to the Big Rock Brewery.
80 Atlantic is Toronto’s first new timber-frame commercial building to be built in a generation. Not only are timber-frame buildings aesthetically pleasing, with exposed wooden beams inside the building, they are also more energy efficient and ecofriendly compared to buildings solely built with concrete and steel. 80 Atlantic incorporates exposed mass timber columns and beams with exposed cross-laminated timber ceilings. Truly a piece of art in of itself.
The new 5 storey building, once complete will house 79,758 square feet of office space, and 7,719 square feet of new retail space. A new hub and to let creativity, art, and innovation flow within our growing community. The building will also be the future home to Universal Music.
Liberty Village is pleased to welcome more arts to our neighbourhood, Universal Music is a natural fit and welcomed addition to our existing arts scene, including events and projects like the Toronto Art Crawl, our collaboration with Sketch, we’re also home to Liberty Arts Toronto, and the Liberty Market Lofts Gallery at 5 Hanna.
