Welcome to Downtown

Downtown Edmonton is in the midst of a renaissance. With the Ice District taking centre stage, new residential towers, restaurants, and other businesses are springing up almost daily.

Over 60 per cent of the area’s population is young adults aged 20-40, which gives downtown an energy unparalleled by other Edmonton neighbourhoods. High density housing rules -- 80 per cent of residential units are apartments in buildings of five or more stories. Over 70 per cent are rented.

Bordered by 109 Street to the west, 97 Street to the east, 105 Avenue to the north and the river valley to the south, downtown has a high density of shops, restaurants and services, post-secondary institutions, fitness and recreation, sporting venues, commerce, and the recreation opportunities of the river valley all within walking distance. There is one high school in the area, City Centre Campus.

The rest of the city is accessible by the Capital and Metro LRT lines or the many major bus lines that traverse the area. It’s easy to manage without a personal vehicle when you’re a downtown dweller. More about Downtown Edmonton...

Downtown’s History

Edmonton was born as Fort Edmonton in 1795 on the north bank of the North Saskatchewan River, at the site of the modern Alberta legislature. By the turn of the 20th century, Edmonton’s commercial hub was at Jasper Avenue and 97 Street.

Downtown redevelopment has been continual since the 1970s, with focus on residential intensification increasing since the late 1990s.

Downtown Today

Avenue magazine has named Downtown one of Edmonton’s top 10 neighbourhoods every year since 2014 -- a clear indication of the neighbourhood’s growing desirability. With culture, shopping, fine dining, recreation, and several annual festivals right in the heart of the city, downtown is becoming a destination rather than a place to escape at the end of the work day.
