Learn more about real estate in Edmonton's New Blatchford Community
After years of planning, construction for the first phase of the dynamic new Blatchford community began back in August of 2015, marking a new beginning for sustainable housing here in Edmonton. Offering an urban living experience unlike anything else in the city, Blatchford features a number of unique elements specifically designed for those who value efficiency, sustainability, and walkability in where they live.
As of March, 2016, the Edmonton City Council decided to further investigate the development of a renewable energy utility model, delaying development by up to a year. They have ambitious energy goals related to carbon neutrality and use of 100% renewable energy sources, and it's taking more time than anticipated to reach them. More updates will be posted here in the coming months.
One of the more distinct characteristics about Blatchford is that in order to create a more inviting connection with the neighbourhood, developers are including a select number of private, ground-floor residences that face directly out onto the street, while all residential and commercial parking will also be located underground or behind the development to give the area a more walkable, pedestrian-friendly feel.
Taking things a bit further, only small-scale retail will be a part of the commercial portion of the Blatchford community, creating a more village-like feel for those who will one day call this exceptional new development home. In addition, residents are also provided with double the amount of bicycle parking normally required for projects of similar size, ultimately cutting down on traffic and congestion for not only eventual Blatchford residents, but other Edmontonians who live nearby as well.
In all, Blatchford in Edmonton will encompass about 217 hectares (536 acres) of land in the heart of downtown, providing homes for right around 30,000 people once completed. Along with its two primary residential districts, Blatchford will include a lively town center, a community civic plaza, and ample green spaces and public parks for locals to enjoy once making the move to this exciting new downtown neighbourhood.
