Church & Wellesley - Yorkville - Annex

These continuous neighbourhoods form an arc above the downtown core. Church & Wellesley has been the centre of Toronto's gay community for decades and has seen an incredible amount of residential growth in the last ten years. During the 1960s Yorkville was the centre of Canada's counterculture but today is the city's high end shopping and entertainment district as well as a busy midtown office neighbourhood by day. Just to the west, the Annex has long been Toronto's literary neighbourhood as it's home to some of Canada's most imminent writers and media personalities including the late Jane Jacobs. It's proximity to the University of Toronto ensures it will forever be full of students. The Annex also has some of the city's finest examples of Edwardian and Victorian Architecture.
