Homes in La Perle Edmonton developed primarily in the 1980s and 1990s. Housing started in the southeast corner of the community with condominiums. Almost all of the single detached family houses were built in the 1980s. As a fully developed neighbourhood, La Perle provides an even mixture of single-family and multi-unit residences.
La Perle is named after Eleodore Joseph Leo LaPerle, who was born in Ontario. His father moved with his family to Edmonton in 1906 and opened a general store at the Winterburn Corner. Leo LaPerle took over his father’s store in 1929, which operated until 1969 when it was torn down.
