Homes for Sale in Edmonton
AUDREY ABUAN - RE/MAX Real Estate REALTOR®
Lauderdale, one of Edmonton’s mature neighbourhoods, is located north of the Yellowhead corridor and west of 97 Street. Although Lauderdale and surrounding areas have been within Edmonton’s city limits since 1913, it did not experience widespread development until the late 1950s and early 1960s. The dominant structure type in Lauderdale is the detached house. This structure form also supplies over 50 percent of the homes. The remaining 50 percent are semi-detached homes, row houses, and apartment buildings.
Lauderdale has a large proportion of recreational space and undeveloped land in the western portion of the community which is owned by the municipality. The City has developed the Grand Trunk Recreational Centre on a large property located in the Lauderdale’s northwest corner. The community is named after James Lauder, originally from Scotland, who farmed and owned land near the Lauderdale neighbourhood before the turn of the century.
