One Bedford is a high-end residential development bordering the Annex, one of Toronto’s upscale 19th century neighbourhoods. The transition from the heritage neighbourhood to the north, to the busier, retail/institutional Bloor Street precinct to the south is mitigated by an eight-storey limestone-clad base articulated as a stone frame with large windows. On Bloor Street, the base forms a continuous urban street-wall activated with retail uses. The main entrance on Bedford Avenue features a garden forecourt. The lower north tower is a lighter, glass building that mediates between the base and the taller Bloor Street point-tower. The exterior expression resonates with the primarily masonry character of the Annex neighbourhood. A projecting bay window floats above Bloor Street capturing dramatic east and west views. Units in the towers are distinguished with views toward the north and south.
The Annex is Toronto’s most heterogenous community. Its residents include successful business people, prominent artists, University of Toronto students and faculty, and people from all walks of life. This is a vibrant neighbourhood that draws its energy from the University of Toronto, as well as from the bars, restaurants and nightclubs that crowd together along Bloor Street. Many of the rooming houses and multi-unit homes in the Annex have recently been converted back to single family houses reflecting the return to prominence of this historic Toronto neighbourhood.
