About South Annex
South Annex is an area of the Annex located close to the University of Toronto. It is a historic Toronto neighbourhood. Visitors can see a seamless mix of old-and-young, and traditional-and-modern, in the demographic and housing in the area. Most of the homes in the South Annex neighbourhood are turn-of-the-century and rented by students, faculty, and alumni. Some of the homes are owned by (very lucky, likely very happy) residents. These houses have traditional Victorian or Edwardian frameworks that have been complemented by modern-day renovations, finishings, and design.
Luckily, the area’s revitalization has in no way tarnished its bohemian roots and diversity. Situated smack-dab between Bloor & College, and Bathurst & Spadina, this pocket of Toronto has access to some of the best restaurants, bars, lounges, boutiques, and coffee shops, that this city has to offer. A short walk, or bike ride, in either direction and you find yourself at the very root of what makes Toronto so great – multiculturalism, entertainment, culinary innovation, music, and art.
A melting pot of activities, South Annex’s bordering areas are lined with places like Mistura, Future Bistro, Annex Pawn, Snakes & Lattes, Bloor Hot Docs Cinema, and the ever-popular, somewhat legendary, predominantly student-oriented: Madison Avenue Pub. Nearby schools, an abundance of trees and generous lots, also make South Annex an ideal location to raise a family. What more can you ask for – really!?
