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 upward trajectory. In Toronto, quality rental properties are in dramatically short supply. Within the Annex neighbourhood, University of Toronto welcomes nearly 100,000 students annually, amplifying rental market demand. With Annex Flats, our vision is to address this need with personality-rich accommodations ideally suited to the area’s student and arts/culture populations. We specifically selected an infill opportunity on Dupont to capitalize on the rapidly evolving Dupont Corridor, one of the fastest-growing urban strips in downtown Toronto.
Featuring an exterior of red and black brick, plus rich medium-brown wood and black stainless-steel accents, Annex Flats comfortably fits within the Annex community fabric while making a distinctive architectural statement. The clean lines and generous floor-to-ceiling windows are decidedly modern, while the overall aesthetic remains warm and inviting.
Annex Flats features a healthy mix of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom suite designs including select 2-storey lofts.
Toronto’s Annex neighbourhood has a rich cultural heritage, with the world-famous University of Toronto’s main campus within its borders. Indicative of the university’s student population, the neighbourhood has an eclectic mix of shops, restaurants and entertainment venues. The area also features Toronto’s world-famous Culture Corridor, including the ROM, Bata Shoe Museum, Gardiner Museum and Hot Docs Cinema. While the Annex has some of the highest property values in Toronto, the nearby neighbourhoods of Yorkville and Casa Loma/Forest Hill are even more stratospheric – shining a golden halo on our Annex address.
