Some of the city’s wealthiest residents once lived along Bloor Street, which is now the commercial centre of The Annex, Toronto neighbourhood, and the former grandeur can still be seen when looking up at the magnificent Romanesque mansions. More than 15,602 people live in this relatively small but highly popular area of Toronto. The energy of the neighbourhood lies in its heterogeneity; its residents form a fine mix of young families, successful business people, prominent artists and hip students from the University of Toronto.

Don’t be surprised to bump into Canada’s movie sweetheart, , in one of the trendy Cafés — she is one of the many prominent residents who fell in love with the neighbourhood. Other famous names include writer , former , members of the rock band , and novelist .

Location

The traditional boundaries of the original Annex, Toronto form almost a perfect rectangle with their limits extending north to Dupont Street, south to Bloor Street, west to Christie Street and east to Avenue Road.

However, Torontonians themselves often refer to a broader neighbourhood when they speak of The Annex — anywhere from Harbord Street and Dupont Street and between Avenue Road and Christie Street.

The splendour of the architecture found in The Annex is the main reason why the neighbourhood is so high on Torontonians’ wish list of places to live. Breath-taking and monumental in size, some of these gorgeous mansions built in the , , and styles during the early 19th century have been divided into individual apartments. The characteristic look of these houses is created by the use of red bricks, plum and pink sandstone of the local Credit River, and terra cotta clays tiles on the exterior facades, beautifully decorated with architectural details such as pyramidal roofs, turrets, archways, and wooden porches beckoning guests in for a morning cup of coffee.

The second wave of The Annex real estate, built between 1910 and 1930, were some of the finest examples of , , and architectural styles — many later replaced by a number of high-rise buildings. The new constructions bearing the signature of the architect have been thoughtfully surrounded by green spaces to better blend in with the residential feel of The Annex real estate.
