Successful urban centres around the world feature a healthy mix of owned and long-term rental properties.
Rental accommodations are essential in attracting new, talented labour streams that contribute to a city’s dynamic and upward trajectory. In Toronto, quality rental properties are in dramatically short supply.
Annex Flats represents a bold new chapter in Toronto rental housing. The six-unit development is constructed in an underutilized laneway, addressing the city’s rental housing shortage through an infill opportunity that features an innovative reimaging of space. The community also unlocks Toronto’s “missing middle”, which is the shortage of available housing options between single-detached homes and high-rise apartments/condominiums.
