About the Neighbourhood
The South Annex also known as Harbord Village is a vibrant and colourful downtown Toronto neighbourhood. Much of the vitality of this neighbourhood emanates from being located right next door to the University of Toronto campus. Naturally, many University students, faculty, and alumni rent or own houses in this neighbourhood. The University population mixes well with the young urban professionals who have been buying and fixing up South Annex houses, giving these old houses new life, and in the process revitalizing this historic downtown Toronto neighbourhood. Harbord Street is the main east-west street running through this neighbourhood. It has a village feel with popular restaurants, trendy coffee shops and bakeries, and an eclectic mix of specialty stores.
