Scheduled to open in mid-2021, the 30-storey tower designed by Reinders + Rieder Ltd will deliver 448 apartments and luxury amenities to Toronto’s Liberty Village neighbourhood. Combined with Novus Rentals across the street, which is also scheduled to open this summer, the two purpose-built rental communities will offer over 1,000 new units for downtown city dwellers.
Construction on the building started in spring 2018, when crews cleared the site at 39 East Liberty Street in preparation for excavation and shoring. A crane was installed in early 2019, and by fall, the project had reached grade level. The tower quickly progressed through most of 2020 and was topped off at the beginning of 2021.
More recently, the project celebrated a major milestone in March when the tower crane was disassembled and removed from the site. Today, the tower stands at full height on the southwest corner of East Liberty Street and Strachan Avenue. Most of the exterior work, including the white cladding, dark-framed windows and balcony glass, has been installed. However, the hoist is still functioning on the building’s west façade as workers put the finishing touches on the roof and interiors.
When completed, Liberty House will offer modern interiors by Figure3 and condo-inspired amenities. Residents will have access to an outdoor rooftop pool with a cabana area, fitness centre with a yoga room, lounge/party rooms, and a lobby with concierge. New ground-floor retail is also planned.
