Downtown Edmonton Homes For Sale - Edmonton, AB
Although centrally located within the greater Downtown Edmonton area, the actual Downtown district is space of about four square blocks that includes both business and residential structures. While the atmosphere of this community is more strongly urban than many of the other neighborhoods in the region, city parks and common grounds use natural vegetation and open space to enhance the relaxed feel for a small town vibe.
Townhouses for sale in Downtown have well-sized lots with a wooded border to give residents a sense of seclusion. As this section has been a hub of activity since it was incorporated in the early 1900s, the residential dwellings have seen numerous changes with industry and population. This has also led to the availability of some smaller multi-family dwellings that also lends to the more neighborhood atmosphere of some of the blocks.
Pedestrian access through and around the Downtown section is very safe and easy to navigate. Along with many bus stops along the roads, Downtown is also served by five LRT stations within the immediate boundaries. These include Grandin to the southwest, Corona, Enterprise, and Central along Jasper Avenue, and Churchill to the north.
Parents find that Downtown development can be a family-friendly environment and that educational facilities are located both within and around the community. Edmonton Public Schools have a strong presence in the sector and Boyle Street Education Centre or Oliver School are other choices.
The Downtown shopping district is rife with boutiques, services, and local eateries like the Sherlock Holmes Pub. Cultural attractions such as the Art Gallery of Alberta make for more leisure destinations, and a region is an exciting place that is also safe for living.
