AUDREY ABUAN - RE/MAX Real Estate REALTOR®
Canossa is predominantly single detached real estate neighbourhood oriented around a loops and cul-de-sacs. It was designed to fit in with the residential housing development pattern of surrounding communities, and to create a safe, quiet, and aesthetically pleasing residential environment.
Canossa began developing in the early 1990s, but the bulk of real estate construction took place over the 2000–2006 time period. Most of the homes in Canossa Edmonton are owner occupied and are a popular place to live for our military members with the Edmonton Garrsion only a few minutes away.
Canossa’s neighbourhood name follows in the tradition of naming neighbourhoods in the Castle Downs area after famous castles. The Canossa Castle was built around 940 AD, near Bologna in northern Italy. The castle fell into the hands of Imperial troops in the 11th century and was destroyed in 1255. Though it was restored numerous times over the centuries, the castle lies in ruins today.
