The Village At Griesbach in north Edmonton offers the city’s most beautiful character homes and stunning multi-family architecture. This new community features four lakes, a 24 acre central park, a children’s playground and Major General Griesbach School, a K-9 school. Innovative “urban village” design ensures everything is close to home with Northgate Shopping Centre, Londonderry Mall, City of Edmonton Fire and Police services, Castledowns Recreation Centre and The Royal Alexandra Hospital just minutes away.
Distinctive turn of the century architecture draws inspiration from classic Canadian and European neighbourhoods to deliver timeless street character and superior curb appeal. Embraced by 50 year-old trees, these magnificent homes and apartment homes feature traditional design and advanced construction systems with environmental enhancements.
Sustainable living and environmental stewardship are key design principals of the Village and the developer has protected, preserved and integrated mature trees, urban forests and vast green spaces into their award-winning master plan.
Rain water is captured and re-purposed for the irrigation of parks and landscaped gardens. Four beautiful water retention lakes create a wetland habitat for many animal and bird species.
Since 1951, the land that the Village at Griesbach now graces has honoured the legacy of Canada’s most distinguished military regiments, officers and personalities. Major General William Antrobus Griesbach was one of Edmonton’s most respected historical figures. He served as a decorated officer in the Canadian Army, was Edmonton’s youngest Mayor and became a Member of Parliament and Senator. Today these lands are being transformed from its proud past into the dream of tomorrow as Edmonton’s most beautiful, new lifestyle community.
