YORK

York represented something of a break with tradition in terms of Edmonton’s neighbourhood planning when it was developed in the 1960s. During the 1960’s, Edmonton was experiencing steady population growth. The typical dwelling unit in Edmonton at the time was the single detached home. Unfortunately these structures could not be added to the market quickly or cheaply enough to satisfy the demand for dwelling units. Furthermore, because of their associated lower densities, single detached houses tend to occupy more land area than multi-family structures, which was in high demand at the time. More about York...

In 1967 row housing units in Edmonton’s first condominium complex were offered for sale in York. The inclusion of condominiums may have been an experiment, but it was a mildly cautious one. Single detached units still made up the bulk of all housing units within the neighbourhood at that time, despite the fact that a concerted desire to bring on many more multifamily units was expressed.

While most of York’s present-day housing stock was in place by the 1970’s, development & redevelopment continued slowly into the 2000s. As a result, unit densities have continued to increase modestly as most new units within the neighbourhood are located in multi-family structures. As of 2006, 60% of all dwelling units were single or semi-detached homes, with the remainder of units found in row houses and low rise apartment buildings. Higher density housing tends to be located along arterial roads on the periphery of the neighbourhood, especially along 66 ST & 144 AVE.

York contains a significant commercial component located in the southeast corner of the neighbourhood, and other shopping facilities located nearby at Londonderry Mall and in the Clareview shopping area. The York Elementary School is located in the centre of the neighbourhood and other schools located in the adjacent neighbourhoods of McLeod and Kilkenny are easily accessible to residents of York.

This neighbourhood takes its name from Annie A. York Secord, a local school teacher who moved from Ontario to Alberta in 1889 to teach at Poplar Lake and then Namao.
