Coming soon to Kensington, at the nexus of Hillhurst and Sunnyside, Minto Group's The Annex (formerly Minto Sunnyside) will soon deliver 9 storeys of high-end residential living north of The Bow. Designed by Nyhoff Architecture, the 104-unit The Annex will seek LEED Certification, featuring a sustainable rooftop garden and terrace.

Having replaced a small row of old homes, the move to high-density living will help bring more people into the neighbourhood, adding to the pedestrian character of Kensington. The development is close to the footpaths of The Bow River, steps away from the Kensington Rd commercial corridor, and just a block south of the Sunnyside CTrain station.

The gem of development will undoubtedly be the large rooftop patio. Equipped with a garden, BBQs, and ample seating and lounging areas, the outdoor amenity will be especially popular during the summer.

Inside, residents will be treated to high-end appliances and  luxury finishes, the ample windows and generous balconies to provide tons of natural light. Provided as well with a spectacular, unbroken view of the downtown skyline, The Annex will be a popular destination for urban professionals looking to stay connected to the city. 

SkyriseCalgary will be sure to return to this project as progress continues. For more information, check out the associated Database file and Forum thread, and as always, feel free to join the conversation in the comments section below.
