Allendale

LIVE IN UNIVERSITY AREA

This neighborhood borders the Canadian Pacific Railway (right of way) and 104 Street on the East and 109 Street on the West, both of which have many businesses. Allendale lies nestled in between 70 Avenue to the North and 61 Avenue on the south. This quaint southwest neighborhood is just minutes to Whyte Avenue’s commercial district, the University of Alberta’s campus and hospital and Southgate Shopping Centre. This central proximity makes it perfect for small families with children and Allendale Elementary Junior High School is just a short walk away. Most of the single family dwellings are renovated bungalows and duplexes that were built just after World War II in the 50’s and 60’s. There are a few low-rise apartment buildings as well, and just over 50% of the homes are rented out which accounts for the rather transient nature of this area. Most people living in Allendale will move within 12 months, probably because many who make their home here are between the ages of 20 to 29, according to a 2005 Census.

Named after the Allen family who first farmed the land before it was annexed in 1907 by the City of Stratchcona, Allendale became part of Edmonton in 1912.
