Belmont is a great place to purchase an investment home. Homes in Belmont Edmonton are located in North, northeast portion of the municipality and form part of the Clareview and Hermitage Areas.
The Belmont area had been homesteaded by settlers since the late 1880s and was first subdivided in 1912 during one of Edmonton’s early land booms. Throughout the 1960s, the future of the Belmont area remained uncertain. There was concern about residential development in the area due to the proximity of petro-chemical and other industrial operations. These concerns were resolved by 1972, when development of the first phase of the Clareview Outline Plan area was approved. Plans of subdivision for Belmont were approved in the same year.
Belmont is one of the seven residential neighbourhoods in the Clareview district. Much of the residential land in Belmont was developed between 1975 and 1977 as the construction industry raced to keep pace with Edmonton’s oil-driven economic boom. By the end of the 1970s, development was essentially complete. Single detached homes comprise 45 percent of housing types in the neighbourhood, with the remainder of housing units located in medium density housing, such as row houses.
Kennedale Ravine forms Belmont's southern boundary and provides local residents with access to the river valley park system. Prior to Edmonton annexation in 1961, the Belmont area was known locally for the presence of the Belmont Rehabilitation Centre and Belmont Drive-In Theatre.
