Kensington Edmonton Real Estate

The land encompassing modern day Kensington was acquired by Edmonton during the time that the city was enjoying its significant real estate boom, at the turn of the century. It was prior to the First World War, between the years 1892 to 1913, that Edmonton underwent its first substantial expansion. Kensington was one of the many land areas that Edmonton annexed in the final years of its earliest real estate boom.

The over-expansion of Edmonton was made evident by the fact that Kensington’s northern boundary, 137 Avenue, was also included in Edmonton’s boundary in 1971. This resulted in discarding the original subdivision of Kensington and a more modern re-plot design was made in the 1950s, similar to that of several design principles that Edmonton used in the same year.

Although Kensington was acquired in 1913, the construction and development of the neighborhood didn’t begin until much later. It wasn’t until shortly after WWII, specifically between the years 1946 to 1960, that any substantial development in the neighborhood took place, when approximately a quarter of its existing homes were built.

During the 1960s, Kensington saw another period of growth, which saw more than half of its present homes completed. Construction in the area continued well into the 1980s and 1990s, albeit at a much slower pace, before grinding to a complete halt in the early 2000s. 

Today, the neighborhood is bound to the north by 137 Avenue, to the east by 113th Street, to the south by 132 Avenue, and to the west by 127th Street. Featuring arterial roadways bordering the neighborhood, residents benefit from easy road access to the rest of the city. The street network was designed in a modified grid pattern to minimize traffic flow within Kensington, and the result is that there are very few traffic problems in the area.

In the center of the neighborhood you can find a school, the Kensington Elementary School, and a community league. Almost all commercial areas can be located at the entry and exit points and at the corners of the neighborhood.

It’s believed that the neighborhood got its name from the Kensington area of London, England.
