Strathcona Real Estate
Located in the south central part of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, Strathcona is a highly mobile residential area with excellent access to popular areas in the city, such as downtown Edmonton, the Queen Elizabeth Pool, and many other attractions located in the city, as well as a number of recreational activities in the river lowlands.
Strathcona is not to be confused Old Strathcona, though it is a part of Old Starthcona. The Strathcona neighbourhood was once a part of the City of Strathcona, but became a suburb of Edmonton in 1912, when the two cities merged. Strathcona was dubbed in honour of Lord Strathcona, who served as the Hudson Bay Company’s governor from 1889 to 1912.
Strathcona is bordered by Whyte Avenue on the south, the Mill Creek Ravine on the east, Saskatchewan Drive to the north, and 107 Street to the west. It also looks out upon the North Saskatchewan River lowlands. Surrounding areas and neighbourhoods include the North Saskatchewan River lowlands to the north and northwest, Garneau to the west, Queen Alexandra to the south and southwest, Ritchie also to the south, King Edward Park to the southeast, Bonnie Doon to the east, and Cloverdale to the northeast.
Most of the construction in the area took place after World War II, with only a small percentage of housing units being built before 1946 (2001 federal census). Almost half of the residential properties are low-rise apartments, with another one fourth being high-rise apartments. A few of these residential properties are condominiums lived in by the owners, but the majority are rental property. Yet another one fourth of the dwellings are single-family homes, and the remaining consists of townhouses, duplex housing, and rooming houses. The majority of homes in Strathcona are rental property (2005 municipal census).
