Over the years, Downtown Edmonton has been quietly evolving along with the rest of the city, showcasing some of the most lavish condos that have become synonymous with grandeur. Offering awe-inspiring views, cutting-edge design, and unparalleled amenities, these high-end abodes aren't just places to live; they're some of the most spectacular luxury condos in Edmonton.
This article delves into the creme de la creme of the city's condo scene, highlighting the ones that epitomize upscale living and uncovering why many are among the best condos in Edmonton.
The West Block condos anchor a 3.5-acre mixed-use development site in the Glenora neighbourhood, one of Edmonton's most coveted neighbourhoods. Just west of downtown Edmonton, the condos are part of a European-style urban square that offers residents options for shopping, dining, wellness, and beauty services—just steps from their homes.
While the list of businesses at West Block is ever-growing, some examples include a wine bar, coffee shop, childcare, salons, a pharmacy, pediatricians, dentists, psychologists, and a florist. In addition, bustling 124 Street is just a five-minute walk, where you'll find some of the most trendy restaurants, cafes, and shops in Northwest Edmonton.
The notably spacious floorplans set West Block condos apart. Floor plans range from one to three bedrooms and two to four bathrooms, with many ranging from 1,600–2,000 square feet. The luxury residences include upscale finishes, chef's kitchens with high-end appliances, gas fireplaces, and private terraces or patios. While prices vary depending on the floor plan, West Block condos range from $559,000 to $3.7 million.
Building amenities include a fitness centre overlooking the city, indoor and outdoor lounges, a "flex room" for special events, and a dog run. There's even a hotel-style guest suite that residents can book when they have out-of-town guests.
West Block Amenities
- Outdoor lounge with covered cabanas, TVs, and a fireplace

The Legends Private Residences
It's hard to top the convenience and excitement of living in the ICE District in downtown Edmonton, and that's exactly what you'll get at The Legends Private Residences. Connected to the condo building is Rogers Place, home to the Edmonton Oilers and host of numerous headliner concerts and other events.
The residences occupy the top floors of the chic JW Marriott Edmonton ICE District hotel, which is a prominent feature of the skyline in Central Edmonton. Floorplans include one- to three-bedroom condos, two-storey Edmonton townhouses with two to three bedrooms, and half-floor sub-penthouses.
As expected, both square footage and prices range significantly. One-bedroom condos start at around 500 square feet, while sub-penthouses extend over 4,000 square feet and are available for over $3 million. Features include gourmet chef's kitchens with islands and stainless steel appliances, tall ceilings, city skyline views, soaking tubs, and balconies.
A major draw to The Legends is that owners receive access to the hotel's upscale amenities and facilities. These include a rooftop patio, gym, owner's lounge and game room, spa, and multiple restaurants.

In the heart of downtown Edmonton, at the intersection of 103rd Street and 102nd Avenue, you'll find the 43-storey luxury ENCORE Tower condos. The all-glass tower has a commanding presence, accented by the fact that only low-rise historic buildings surround it. That means the views from ENCORE are completely unobstructed—and will remain that way for many years. This view protection alone makes ENCORE Tower one of the most highly sought-after condominium buildings in one of Edmonton's most walkable neighbourhoods.
All condos in ENCORE have two bedrooms and two bathrooms and range from 717 to 1,501 square feet. The penthouse is the only exception, spanning just over 3,000 square feet.
