THE LOWDOWN

History

The City of Toronto was growing and “annexed” a big piece of land north of Bloor St. That’s why they call it The Annex.

Housing and Accommodations

If you have to ask how much, you probably can’t afford to live here. But everyone tries anyway. Some people never learn…

A number of mansions were knocked down against local opposition, and apartment towers went up in their place. Architect Uno Prii using simple concrete in unexpected fashion, fashioned the exteriors of the newer apartment buildings into strange and unusual facades. This seemed to make people forget about protesting.

ABOUT THE ANNEX

Electricity. Day or night, it’s the word that best describes the feel of what remains one of Toronto’s premier neighbourhoods. Anchored by proximity to public transit and the presence of Toronto’s most prestigious university, the Annex is one of Toronto’s most demographically diverse places to live. A walk along Bloor Street provides a solid look at a student-driven economy where restaurants, cafes, pubs, clubs, shops and fruit markets are open often from morning until late night. Well-known hot spots like Lee’s Palace and Mirvish Village (soon to be redeveloped) give colour to the neighbourhood. A walk through the residential streets on the other hand speaks more to the successful urban professional who may be fine dining at Splendido. Drawing energy from the heavy student demographic, The Annex is home to university faculty, successful entrepreneurs and prominent artists, and is vibrant most any hour of the day.

The Annex is an evolving neighbourhood, currently exploring a push backwards in time to its roots in larger single-family dwellings. Multi-unit homes and student-focused rooming houses are increasingly being scooped up and returned to family homes. Officially bordered by Dupont to the North, Avenue Road to the East, Bathurst to the West, and Bloor Street to the South, the Annex vibe and architecture extends both southwards into Harbord Village aka “South Annex” and westward into Seaton Village and toward Little Italy – good next-best options if the true Annex price tags are too much.

THE GOOD

      • A thriving cultural scene, there are a variety of community events that bring people together from all around the community
      • With a wide variety of restaurants you will never go hungry.
      • Four subway stations and lots of transit options.

THE UGLY

      • Froshies – Every September, all neighbourhoods in close proximity to U of T get flooded with froshies. It’s not cute.
      • Catching a bus – The Annex is a neighbourhood lucky enough to have several subways within it, but if you’re in need of a bus, you’re not gonna have a good time. The 26 runs once every half hour, and the Bloor bus is a crowded mess.
      • Dodging bikes – There’s a disproportionate amount if cyclists in the Annex, and sometimes is can feel like their all riding around outside of your place. Always look both ways!
