More big changes coming to the Annex: over the weekend, for-sale signs were slapped up on the Bloor Street building that houses the beloved By The Way Café, as well as longtime clothing boutique Risqué and the Kandy Shoppe (which closed up shop recently). The seller's agent informs Curbed that the property includes five buildings on Bloor Street (400 through 408) as well as 308 and 310 Brunswick Avenue. There are five retail storefronts, and ten residential apartments on the upper floors. By the way—the asking price? Just shy of $16,000,000.
