The Annex is Toronto's most heterogeneous community. Its residents include successful business people, prominent artists, University of Toronto students and faculty, and people from all walks of life. This is a vibrant neighbourhood that draws its energy from the University of Toronto, as well as from the bars, restaurants and nightclubs that crowd together along Bloor Street.
The Annex houses consist of fine Victorian, Queen Anne and Richardsonian Romanesque architectural styles. Ranging from pyramidal roofs and turrets to recessed grand archways and wooden spindled porches, the architectural detail is among the finest in the city.
The Mirvish Village shopping district on Markham Street, south of Bloor Street, is a quaint collection of bookstores, art galleries, antique stores, and one-of-a-kind specialty stores. The Annex really comes alive at night when people from all over the city converge upon its restaurants, bars and nightclubs.
The Annex is well served by public transit. There are subway stations both at Spadina and at Bathurst on the Bloor-Danforth line, and at Dupont Street, on the Yonge-University-Spadina line. Motorists are within minutes of Toronto's business and entertainment districts and are approximately twenty five minutes from the commuter highways.
