U of T Area Condos For Sale

One of Toronto’s most historic and prestigious areas would be that of University of Toronto and the surrounding area. This area is effectively in the middle of Yorkville and Downtown Toronto, commonly known as being between Bloor Street and College, Bay Street to the east, and Spadina to the west,  The immediate neighborhood here is commonly known as the Annex, or Toronto Annex. Settlement first started in the Annex in the late 1700s with very notable early settlers determining the York region boundaries from here. It wasn’t until 1887 that The Annex formally became part of Toronto and the upscale neighbourhood became home for many of the first recognizable families residing in Toronto. Over the years the Annex has been home to many Canadian writers, poets, politicians, historic families and so on. 

It goes without saying that the University of Toronto is one of the major attractions to the area known as Queen’s Park. Queen’s Park is a long established park in the city’s core and is made up largely of university grounds, but is also home to the Ontario Legislative Building – this is on land being leased to the government from the university. Queen’s Park does not have residential dwellings per se, however development of the surrounding area supplies the high end condo buildings that we are used to seeing. Residential homes in this area are typically over 100 years old, made up of Victorian and Edwardian style houses on tree lined streets. Many investors relish in the fact that the University of Toronto is annually ranked in the top 25 (most recently ranked 23rd by the Shanghai Ranking) and 1st in Canada. This presents an opportunity when it comes to U of T condos for sale, where purchaser’s secure a long term hold in real estate while supplementing the appreciation with rental income from Canadian and international students.
