This neighbourhood has a lot of potential, the University of Toronto (named the 24th best university in the world) is nearby which has attracted and will continue to attract the world’s top talent. However, unlike Toronto’s core where high rises are rapidly replacing vacant lots, the Annex is experiencing more incremental growth in an effort to preserve the social and architectural character of this established neighbourhood. Although the Annex architectural projects are not the tallest they will have a significant impact on their surroundings. Currently, near the Mansouri’s Perry Condos, excavation is nearing completion. This will be an 11-storey mid-rise building which will add 45 luxury boutique condos on a quiet side street in the north Annex. This area is filled with museums, parketts, and cuisine from all over the world.
