Renowned for its natural beauty, cultural attractions and festivals, the city of Edmonton is a popular destination to lay down roots.

Sometimes called Canada’s ‘Festival City,’ Edmonton plays host to over 50 festivals and events annually, from the world-renowned Edmonton International Fringe Theatre Festival in the summer to the Ice on Whyte ice sculpture festival in the winter. The amenity-rich city is also home to the largest museum in western Canada, the Royal Alberta Museum (RAM), and the world-renowned West Edmonton Mall, which is the largest shopping mall in Canada.

Those looking for a new home in Edmonton are in luck — especially first-time homebuyers. The city remains an affordable urban real estate market compared to places like Toronto, Vancouver and even its neighbour to the south, Calgary. A popular option for first-time buyers are townhomes and duplexes. These types of homes offer spacious floorplans with expansive great rooms, gourmet kitchens, generously-sized bedrooms and garages, but are priced much lower than larger detached homes.

If you’re interested in a townhome or duplex in Edmonton, Brookfield Residential has a new community for you. The developer is a leading North American new home builder dedicated to providing thoughtfully-designed master-planned communities that prospective homebuyers want to call home. Brookfield Residential has been operating in Alberta for over 60 years and offers a wide variety of homes in south and west Edmonton.

Here’s a look at four of Brookfield’s latest townhouse and duplex options in Edmonton.
