Why We Love It
Living in The Annex provides residents with a vibrant urban lifestyle. It combines a diverse demographic, easy access to transit, beautiful houses and some of the city’s most popular attractions. From Mirvish Village to Koreatown, The Annex has a lot to offer. The side streets are lined with mature trees that shade the Victorian and Tudor-style homes.
This community is a short walk or commute to multiple school campuses, including the University of Toronto and OCAD. It’s filled with students and professors and home to Queen’s Park’s, seat of the provincial government.
Living in The Annex offers you plenty to do. You can visit the newest exhibits at the Royal Ontario Museum, catch a documentary at the Hot Docs Cinema, or head to the Miles Nadal Jewish Community Centre or U of T Community Centre to work out. When it comes to nightlife, Bloor Street has you covered with plenty of great bars and restaurants. You’re also just steps to Yorkville’s dining and shopping options.
The Annex is walkable and well-served by both the Bloor-Danforth and Yonge-University subway lines.
The area’s universities, museums, and local businesses attract an eclectic group of residents who enjoy living in The Annex. Urban professionals, downsizers, artists, students, and young couples all make this neighbourhood home.
