Outward and Upward Bound in East Edmonton
East Edmonton comprises a wide swath of land east of the North Saskatchewan River. Hovering between Sherwood Park and the city, this area is poised for expansion and growth. With a range of communities at various stages in their existence, like the commerce-filled Bonnie Doon and the more residential Kenilworth, East has much to offer for Albertans of all stripes.
A large portion of East is devoted to industrial parks at varying levels of usage. Here, long roads stretch for miles as they travel to more remote locales or connect with Anthony Henday Drive as it circumnavigates the city. For those seeking jobs, the burgeoning business population provides many welcome options, and the growing populace of private citizens means that retail opportunities aren't lacking either. These realities and the ease of travel make East particularly enticing to people who want to start their own businesses.
Choosing One's Level of Urban Immersion
East Edmonton is attractive because it's easy to find a community that fits. Why settle for living in a dense urban zone or feeling lost in a deserted wilderness? Here, locals can find properties along the spectrum and thus discover something perfect for their unique tastes. Thanks to the city's many community leagues, reliable public transportation and park systems, residents aren't ever too far from education, parks, meeting halls and family-friendly activities. Since the area is unlikely to become crowded due to its mixed zoning and the city's focus on maintaining a high quality of living through balanced planning, it provides investments whose value should last for decades to come.
