Living in North East Edmonton
With its roots in early 20th-century industry, North East Edmonton is home to century-old homes perched atop the river valley as well as modern living choices. Condos and newer single-family homes blend with the old to provide a diversity of options for those who move to the neighbourhoods of Edmonton's northeast side.
The area's focus on industry continues even to today. Its four industrial neighbourhoods provide a wide range of employment for area residents—particularly at its high-tech centre—the Edmonton Energy and Technology Park. Health care jobs, too, attract people to the area, with the thriving Northeast Community Health Centre delivering quality primary health care to northeast Edmonton's people. In 2018, a new retirement living community, McConachie Gardens, plans to open, which its owner, Revera, estimates will create more than 100 new jobs.
