Canossa Homes For Sale - Edmonton, AB
Canossa is one of the Castledowns communities that fall under the amended part of the structuring plan. While the initial approval for development was granted in the 1980s, much of the construction is still ongoing. This gives residents the unique ability to play a greater part in the acquisition of facilities for education and recreation, and the efforts of local community leagues have a great influence on this aspect of the structuring.
Canossa is situated to the northwest of the Castledowns district and is bordered by 112th street in the east and 167th Avenue to the south. The road plan for this sub-division follows the concept of discouraging vehicle traffic through the neighborhood and encouraging greater pedestrian and cycling travel. The region relies greatly on loop roads, cul-de-sacs, and a modified grid pattern, with the inclusion of non-vehicle pathways throughout the community.
Bus stops are located within the development along 115th Street and on the border roads so that commuters have the option of public transportation. Drivers have good access to Anthony Henday Drive, by way of connecting roads to 97th Street, which makes for an easy ride into the city centre.
