Walter Ramsay came to Edmonton in 1899 to teach and ended up becoming the city’s first commercial florist. Ramsay Heights, overlooking the Saskatchewan River valley in Alberta, Canada is his namesake. It is bordered by that same river in the north and by 40th Avenue to the south. Whitemud Drive frames the east and Terwillegar Drive the west.
Residential development did not get started in earnest until the 1970s with more than 42% of the residential properties constructed in that decade. The 1980s were equally prolific, with just under half (48%) of available units completed. Prior to this building boom less than 5% of homes were built in the period between the end of World War II and 1970. After the 1980s construction slowed considerably and less than 4% of Ramsay Heights’ housing was built after 1990.
The single family home accounts for over half of all residential housing options. Apartments and condominiums in low rise buildings attribute to 33% of the housing market and the remainder consists of duplexes and row houses. Two thirds of the properties are owner occupied.
