LIVE IN WEST EDMONTON
Jamieson Place, a newer residential neighbourhood in West Edmonton, is a popular locale for families. Named in honor of Frederick Jamieson, an influential lawyer and politician in the early 1900’s, Jamieson Place was initially developed in the 1980’s, when about half of its presently-standing buildings were constructed. Development continued through the 1990’s — with another two fifths of the houses built during that decade — and continues at present. Parts of this growing neighbourhood await development.
In spite of undeveloped areas, this is a relatively well-established neighourhood. The vast majority of the homes are detached single-family houses occupied by their owners; a small number of row houses and semi-detached units are present in the area as well. Sixty percent of the inhabitants report they have no plans to move.
Households in this family-oriented community are larger then average, with over half of the neighbourhood’s households made up of married couples with children in the home. A full third of the residents in this growing community are under age 20.
With so many children in the neighbourhood, residents consider the presence of the Michael A. Kostek Elementary School a distinct plus.
This convenient neighbourhood features Anthony Henday Drive as its northernmost boundary, allowing for easy access to the Edmonton International Airport and points south of the city. Callingwood Road, 184th Street and Lessard Road define the community to the north, west and south.
