LIVE IN NORTH WEST EDMONTON
McQueen is an older residential neighbourhood in North West Edmonton and was named for Reverend David McQueen, the minister of the city’s first Presbyterian church . The community is laid out in the shape of a square and is defined on the north by 111th Avenue and on the south by 107th Avenue. 142nd and 149th Streets are the east and west boundaries.
Most of McQueen’s development took place in the post-World War II housing boom, with another burst of construction occurring in the late 1990’s. About half of the dwellings are detached single-family homes, with low level apartment buildings accounting for the other half. The proportion of renters to owners in this area is also a roughly equal split. The population in this mature neighbourhood is demographically older with a quarter of the residents over the age of 60. The average home price here is around $390,000.
