The Annex by Minto, New Condos in Kensington
The Kensington Business Revitalization Zone has seen a lot of updates lately. From new streetside businesses in the base of recently completed condos Lido and Kensington by Bucci, to renovated retail spaces along the main road, there’s a lot to look forward to as a potential buyer interested in living in the area!
Now there’s another brand new condo coming to the area called The Annex. Developed by Minto Communities, it is one of two new condominiums being proposed for the inner city by the company, with the other in Bridgeland.

In terms of walkability, Kensington has a lot to offer and residents at The Annex will be able to access all of this and more within a matter of minutes.
There’s also the Sunnyside LRT Station and SAIT / ACAD a few minutes north while to the south are the Bow River and its pathways!
The Annex is currently pre-selling several different floor plans ranging from “village mains” all the way up to 2 bedroom + den units and everything in between.
The village mains are one bedroom units ranging from 498 to 640 square feet. These are located on the main floor and walk out to the street with a streetside patio and there’s 12 different units to choose from.
One bedroom units range from 482 to 548 square feet, while one bedroom + den units range from 593 to 651 square feet.
Two bedrooms are between 658 and 968 square feet, while the largest unit named “the plaza” has a 1,100 square foot two bedroom + den floorplan.
The Annex’s two bedroom floorplans all have been well designed, with each bedroom located on the opposite of the condo from one another. Sharing a wall with a roommate isn’t always the most desirable thing to do!
As mentioned above, The Annex condos range from 482 to 1100 square feet and in price from the high $200s to high $600s.
