Next to the University of Toronto’s St. George Campus, the Annex is one of Toronto’s most diverse and vibrant neighbourhoods. The Annex extends from Dupont Street in the north to Bloor Street in the south, west to Bathurst Street and east to Avenue Road.
The affluent, tree-lined neighbourhoods are mainly residential, and while inhabited by many business and academic professionals, many pockets house large student populations from the University of Toronto.
