Located in the former home of The Canada Bread Factory at 2 Fraser Avenue in Liberty Village, the disused and modernized space has undergone a huge transformation in just over a year.

The building was originally part of the Grand Trunk Railway grounds and housed Henry Disston & Sons, a supplier of saws. In 1960, it turned into a bread factory for the next 50 years.

They were designed to look specifically like a Joe Fresh retailer, with clothes hanging from the racks.

Other amenities include an all-new kitchen, spacious conference rooms, breakout rooms, mothers’ spaces, and gender-neutral bathrooms.

Kitchen.

It is extremely important for a fashion retailer to have dedicated shelving, closets, and other storage space for tons of clothing samples.

The whole project took 15 months, from buying the building to moving the entire team just two months ago in September.

Much like similar spaces in the converted Liberty Village offices, the Joe Fresh space retains the “factory” or “manufacturing” look of its history while enhancing it with modern touches.
