The Meadows Edmonton Real Estate
The Meadows is a large residential zone in the south-east of Edmonton that encompasses a total of seven separate neighborhoods within the city.
The Meadows Area Structure Plan, which was first conceived in the 1980s, is one of the largest and most ambitious of Edmonton City's recent the development projects, and its neighborhoods are generally viewed as being some of the most desirable in the entire city. The districts boundaries are a little unclear, although officially it is bounded by Whitemud Drive to the north, Anthony Henday Drive to the east and south, and 34 street to the west. The large residential district of Mill Woods lies immediately adjacent to the Meadows the on its western boundary, while the ruinous Strathcona County lies to the East, just across from Anthony Henday Drive.
Seven separate neighborhoods make up the Meadows area structure plan. These include Larkspur, Laurel, Maple, The Meadows Neighborhood 5 (not yet built), Silver Berry, Tamarack, and Wild Rose.
More About The Meadows Real Estate
The Meadows is an overwhelmingly residential area, although it still has of reasonable amount of commercial properties and services located within its confines for residents, including a number of schools, the most recent of which has just opened in Tamarack, and a reasonable selection of shopping venues. The biggest of these is the RioCan Meadows development, which is located at the corner of 17th Street and Whitemud Drive, and features a number of different retail stores, including anchors such as Home Depot, Real Canadian Superstore and Best Buy. In addition to RioCan, there is also a smaller commercial development located in the centre of the community.
Transportation links are another bonus in the Meadows, while for recreation, residents can visit the Meadows transit centre, which recently opened in 2010 just across from RioCan Meadows. Here, there is a large park with a variety of sports facilities and children's rides.
