Can I Survive Without A Car In Edmonton?

If you’ve been wondering whether or not you can actually survive without a car in Edmonton, the answer is definitely! With expansive bus routes and the LRT line available, you can easily navigate through this city without a vehicle. And, thanks to strategic urban planning and a Master Transit Plan that’s geared towards improving accessibility, residents can expect even more expansive transit routes to get them across the city in no time. Whether it’s by bike, on foot or by transit, there are a number of quick and convenient options that allow residents in YEG to leave the car at home or give it up for good.

Bus Routes

Edmonton has a large and impressive bus system that currently operates approximately 200 bus routes throughout the entire city, making it incredibly easy to get around. The city is also currently working together with its residents to modernize the transit system to deliver a service that works better for everyone. After receiving input from over 20,000 Edmontonians, a new transit strategy was approved in 2017 with a focus on improving the frequency and quality of bus service to make it easier for people to connect to major corridors and outer areas of the city.

LRT

The Light Rail Transit (LRT) is another integral part of Edmonton Transit that’s one of easiest ways to travel throughout the city. To date, there are eighteen stations and two separate lines that run throughout, with a number of new routes planned as part of the city’s Master Transit Plan.

The New LRT will feature a long-term plan that will develop an additional five LRT lines by 2040, with the purpose of transforming the current suburban-style system into a more urban design that will connect and transform the entire city centre.

So, in addition to the current rails that stretch across the city, Edmontonians can look forward to more accessible, central LRT lines in the near future that will continue to make it incredibly easy to move around the city without a car in Edmonton.

Biking

Edmonton is a bike-friendly city offering designated bike lanes, shared roadways and paths throughout it. There are also three major bike routes that are accessible year-round, including the Downtown network, the West Central routes, and the Southside network that span over 12km throughout the city. The Edmonton Transit Service also provides plenty of bike racks outside of various stations, making it extra convenient to ride and store your bike before hopping onto transit to get across the city.

Walking

Walkable communities are the way of the future. And as part of the future vision of Edmonton, City Council and planners are integrating mixed-use and mid-rise developments to create more pedestrian-friendly communities where residents can easily access work, home and local amenities by foot. To see this concept in play, check out the CX Lofts and Townhomes in Grandin. These Lofts & condos make it easy to access everything you need on foot.

Car-Share

When you do need a vehicle, whether it’s to pick up groceries or get from A to B, there are also a number of handy car share programs in the city that you can utilize. POGO is a popular car-sharing service in Edmonton that gives customers 24/7 access to a pool of vehicles that are located throughout different zones in the city. In addition to programs like this, our new future-facing development offers a new modern mode of car-sharing service that will be available for tenants only. This means residents can borrow an electric vehicle free of charge anytime they need to get around – some very exciting news!

And there you have it! There are many quick and convenient ways to get around without a car in Edmonton. In addition to the current ETS and bike paths that are available, the city is transforming into a more sustainable, urban oasis that encourages more pedestrian-friendly, livable communities where residents can get to their destinations in no time without the need of a personal vehicle.

 

To find out how you can live right in the heart of it all, check out the CX Lofts and Townhomes that are currently for sale. These are located minutes from the Grandin LRT station and bike paths. Additionally, they are in walkable range to plenty of exciting restaurants, shops, and major employers. It’s urban living at your fingertips.

The Rise Of The Missing Middle – Mid-Rise Flats for Urban Living

The Rise of the Missing Middle

Demand for the ‘Missing Middle’ has been quickly growing in the YEG as the city continues to evolve into a modern urban centre. Increased housing prices, coupled with a demographic shift, have driven the need for more innovative housing solutions. Younger Edmontonians entering the housing market are looking for walkable and amenity-rich neighbourhoods where they can be closer to everything. They want central locations and are less attracted to the suburban lifestyles as their parents were. They’re also being priced out of single-family homes and are looking for more affordable options that suit their lifestyle.

As the population grows and as the demand for urban living increases, the city needs to – not only build more housing – but also the right kind. That’s where mid-rise flats for urban living comes into play. Advanced projects with forward-facing designs, like the CX Suites and Townhomes in Grandin, are providing medium-density housing that’s needed to meet the growing demands of this city.
To learn more about how mid-rise flats are improving urban life for residents in the YEG, explore some of the advantages below.

Addresses the Needs of Today

What are the growing demands of today’s market? That’s the question that many developers are asking when designing the layout and features of their developments throughout Edmonton. Consumer demand has been steadily shifting towards more walkable cities. This growing trend has been driven significantly by millennials who prefer urban living to match their career-driven lifestyles. They are also less concerned with space and more focused on living in an area where they can live, work, and play. Mid-rise condos, like CX in Grandin, can support the growing needs of young professionals by providing high-quality urban living in a dynamic community.

Integrates into Existing Neighbourhoods

Mid-rise condo buildings can easily blend into communities without impacting the urban landscape. For example, they create a smaller footprint in comparison to high-rise buildings, while accommodating a lower density of residents. This makes them more suitable for neighbourhood streets and rapid transit corridors. And, since they are often only four to eight stories tall, it allows them to easily fit into the character of neighbourhoods. This is particularly important because local residents and planning officials alike want to see more integration into existing neighbourhoods that can meet demand, while also supporting healthier lifestyles and economies without transforming the entire community.

Provides Affordability

Edmonton has a lot to offer, but a large number of neighbourhoods are predominantly tailored to residents seeking detached, single-family houses leaving a gap for the missing middle. And, with the prices of these homes rapidly increasing, this has made it challenging for young professionals and young families to afford city living. The missing middle can provide better affordability to those who are looking to buy their first property in an urban setting. By creating a mid-rise building that provides housing for several people on one lot, the cost of land can be divided up, which makes it much more affordable for residents.

Take for instance the CX Lofts & Townhomes, here, you can live in a 1646 sq. ft. three-bedroom townhome, a 1083 sq. ft. two-bedroom suite, or even a 576 sq. ft. loft, all in the same building with similar benefits of a detached house, but with convenient amenities and a very attractive price.

Creates Communities

Many people would prefer to live in the city but they don’t want that intense metropolitan feeling that can make them feel alone or unsafe. They want a sense of community, safety, nature, and convenience, all rolled into one. With mid-rise flats, you can enjoy the integration of shared community spaces like parks, along with immediate access to amazing places to eat, drink and socialize. This is a perfect environment for young professionals who want to be close to it all while feeling part of a secure and friendly community.

At InHouse by Beaverbrook, we know how important it is to develop the ‘missing middle’ to meet these growing demands within the city. That’s why we’ve built CX Lofts & Townhomes in Grandin – a stunning 7-storey modern, industrial-designed building that offers a range of amenities for high-quality urban living in heart of downtown Edmonton.

The Advantages of New-Build Condos

Interested in purchasing a condo in Edmonton? Taking the time to understand the options that are available will ensure you select the best property suited to your lifestyle and needs. If you’re trying to decide between a resale and a new-build condo, it’s important to understand the advantages of both. Since a majority of buyers are not as familiar with the characteristics of new-build condos today, there can be many misconceptions that hinder that decision. Thankfully, we’re here to help dispel some of those common inaccurate assumptions. So before you jump into a purchase, consider these 5 reasons why we think a new-build condo could be the best purchase you ever make.

New-Build Condos, Distinctively Yours

Many existing condos look the same from one unit to the next, which makes it very difficult to tailor to your individual style. However, there are a number of new development projects like CX Lofts & Townhomes on 110 Street in Grandin, which have removed the “cookie-cutter” style of yesteryear. With 20 different styles and designs to choose from, you can select the exact floor plan – whether it’s a loft, suite, or townhome – that’s tailored to your unique taste and lifestyle. When it comes to a resale condo, you’re much more limited on what you can alter. But with a new-build condo, you can take control of the design to make it uniquely yours.

Quality Workmanship

Some people worry that newer condos are being built with flimsy materials and paper-thin walls that force you to hear more than what you bargained for from the neighbours. But in reality, it’s quite the opposite. Many modern new-build condos today utilize high-quality materials that allow residents to enjoy a truly superior standard of living. Consider the CX development structure, for example. It’s crafted out of hybrid structural steel and mass timber GLT that provides exceptional durability as well as soundproofing qualities that are similar to concrete. Even with stunning exposed wood-beam ceilings, the quality architectural designs ensure that you can enjoy some peace and quiet from the comfort of your new luxury condo.

Efficient & Sustainable

Unlike most resale models, new-build condos are designed with advanced Energy Star certified appliances and fixtures that promote energy efficiency, which equates to more cost savings for you. New developments, like CX, are also incorporating more sustainable materials like GLT engineered mass lumber that is sourced from sustainable regional forests. If that’s not impressive enough, this project will also be featuring ridesharing programs that offer electric cars for rent as part of their condo fees, furthering the initiative towards modern, sustainable, forward-facing development.

Modern Amenities

Ever feel like some of the older resale condos are designed only for retirees? When you’re keen on having a design that includes a chic, modern edge with amenities that keep up with your lifestyle – gym, bike storage, on-site parking and more – new-builds can deliver. Finally, you can experience condo living that’s designed for a modern lifestyle that won’t break the bank.
