Bordered by Bathurst, Dupont, Avenue Rd and Bloor St, The Annex is a high demand, key community of Tree lined streets and stately homes in Downtown Toronto.
The Annex was subdivided in the 1870's and 1880'sand it immediately became one of Toronto's Elite Neighbourhoods. Its original residents included Timothy Eaton and George Gooderam of Gooderam & Worts Distillery. There is a powerful Annex Residents Association which saved The Annex from the proposed Spadina Expressway which would have divided The Annex in half.
The Annex is Toronto's most heterogeneous community. Its residents include successful Business People, prominent Artists, University of Toronto Faculty, staff & students, and people from all walks of life.
With a WALKSCORE of 94, a TRANSIT SCORE of 97 and a BIKE SCORE of 60, The Annex is the 8th most Walkable in Toronto with 29,225 Residents. There are over 640 Restaurants, Bars and Coffee Shops and 29 of them are within a 5 minute walk of this home at 164 Albany Ave.
