The Boyle Street neighbourhood, named for lawyer John Robert Boyle (1871 - 1936), boasts being one of the oldest parts of the city of Edmonton. Originally the City of Edmonton’s downtown area, the neighbourhood houses a large number of old buildings. Though many of these old buildings were destroyed in the 1970’s when the city redeveloped the area, a number of them were spared demolition either because of their beautiful Edwardian style structures, or because of their designation as Municipal Historic Resource Sites. Some of these historic buildings include, Gibson Block, Hecla Block, the Kingston Powell Building, and Gem Theater.
Many of the demolition sites of the city’s redevelopment project were left vacant and never reconstructed. As a result, the Boyle Street area is comprised mainly of historical buildings, vacant lots, and parking lots.
According to the 2005 Municipal Census, the Boyle Street neighbourhood contains 3.486 residences. 80% of these are apartment housing, and 15% are rooming houses or collective homes. Many of the private homes in Boyle Street were built in the 1970’s, at the time of the City of Edmonton’s redevelopment project. A smaller percentage were constructed later, in the 1980’s.
