Westmount's History

In 1878, Malcolm Groat selected his homestead on the land that is now the Westmount neighbourhood. Groat was a Hudson Bay Company employee and an early Edmonton settler who remained one of Edmonton’s leading citizens through the turn of the century. Groat’s square mile of land was wisely selected along the North Saskatchewan River immediately west of the area that became the Hudson Bay Reserve. The Groat homestead was annexed to the City of Edmonton in two stages, first in 1904 and then in 1910.

Groat gradually sold his land to developers as the demand for residential lots heated up. Due to its proximity to downtown Edmonton Westmount developed early, in spite of the general oversupply of residential lots in Edmonton. Access to downtown was enhanced by the extension of an electric streetcar line between Jasper Avenue and 110 Avenue via 124 Street beginning in 1910.

Westmount Today

While most low density residential structures were built prior to 1950, apartment development (which now accounts for over fifty percent of dwelling units) increased over time. Apartment buildings are generally located near 124 Street and other major traffic routes. Along its residential streets, Westmount has retained many of its attractive older homes, and extensive renovation and infill development has also occurred.
The hustle and bustle of the 124 Street area, its proximity to downtown and the undeniable charm of its character homes led to Westmount being named the fourth-best neighbourhood in Edmonton on Avenue Magazine’s 2016 Best Neighbourhoods list.
