Enjoy Downtown Edmonton – live close to the action!

Edmonton Downtown, close neighbourhoods real estate

When you hear the word “downtown,” you probably imagine an active, lively place, where everything you can think of is within reach. That’s what makes downtown Edmonton one of the most amazing places to live in! Edmonton’s downtown is Alberta’s economic centre, and with good reason. Try some of the best restaurants in the province, enjoy the unmatched amenities and be within reach of many incredible job opportunities.

However, we also know that some of you may prefer to live near downtown, rather than in it. That’s perfectly fine, and more often than not, this also means you will save some dollars by investing in a property not exactly located downtown, but close enough that the commute is just a few minutes!

You don’t have to live downtown to have fun. You need to live close enough.
