Homes for Sale in Edmonton
AUDREY ABUAN - RE/MAX Real Estate REALTOR®
Homes in Baranow Edmonton are located in the Castledowns Palisade districts and is a 15 minute commute to the Edmonton Garrison for our DND Members. The Baranow neighbourhood is located within the Castle Downs Outline Plan area and defines the southwest corner of the plan. This long, narrow neighbourhood is bounded by 153 Avenue to the north, 137 Avenue to the south, and 127 Street to the west.
Baranow is a unique neighbourhood in that it is almost entirely non-residential in character. The dominant land use is commercial, business and industrial. Residential land uses are clustered in two distinct areas: one in the far northern portion of the community, and one in the south central area. As of 2009, the neighbourhood was still actively under construction, and remaining developable residential lands are located along the eastern border of the community.
The community is distinctive because of the high density of its residential land use. Approximately 70 percent of all residential units within Baranow are located in condominium buildings, and all residential zoning within the Baranow is multi-family with the exception of a few remnant single detached houses constructed during the 1960s.
Baranow does not contain any institutional or recreational land uses, but residents can access facilities and amenities in the adjacent Carlisle and Caernarvon neighbourhoods. Like all neighbourhoods located within the Castle Downs area, Baranow takes its name from a famous castle. The Baranow Castle, built between 1591 and 1606, is located in Poland and was formerly the residence of Prince Lubomirski.
