Homes for Sale in Edmonton
AUDREY ABUAN - RE/MAX Real Estate REALTOR®
Belmead is located near West Edmonton Mall and is part of the West Jasper Place district. Belmead’s design emphasizes an efficient use of urban land. Many community subdivisions that were planned prior to the 1970s were lower density and thus consumed more urban land. To shift away from this model, the increased density planned for Belmead was intended to preserve agricultural land, conserve energy, and increase the efficiency of service delivery.
Belmead Edmonton homes are designed so that condominiums are situated adjacent to public transportation routes and close to schools and shopping facilities. Detached single family houses are grouped on either side of the centre of the neighbourhood. The neighbourhood map reveals two separate stages of subdivision. The portion west of 187 Street was originally reserved for an urban ring road. With the ring road moved further to the west, this excess land was absorbed into Belmead.
The neighbourhood name, Belmead, fits with the pastoral naming convention for neighbourhoods located within the Primrose subdivision. Belmead is an abbreviation of the French term for beautiful meadows.
