Village at Griesbach 'Best Place in Edmonton to Live'

Posted On: 07/15/2019
"It’s 60 percent complete, will eventually have four lakes across 620 acres, is a multiple award winner, and hosts a mix of housing and amenities that honour all three arms of Canada’s military."

According to former Griesbach Community League President Brad Tilley, the Village at Griesbachis the best place in Edmonton to live”. Located in north Edmonton, this urban village is the city’s most unique lifestyle community. 



Village at Griesbach has raised the bar on residential development excellence by combining superior lifestyle amenities, classic architecture, sustainable development practices and a proud legacy of honour and service. The result is character-filled streetscapes and an engaging sense of community that fosters more fun and friendships among neighbours.

“You feel like you are leaving the city when you enter Griesbach even though we are 10 minutes from downtown. You know your neighbours, there’s block parties, our kids all play sports together.” – Brad Tilley

The community is developed on former Canadian Forces Base Edmonton lands (also known as the Griesbach Barracks) by Canada Lands Company and will eventually see 13,000 people living in about 4,700 homes. Being roughly 60 percent complete, Village at Griesbach is characterized by four retention lakes, accented by a piece of Canadian military history like the Bailey Bridge on Patricia Lake and the Bedford Basin Ship.

Plans for the fourth lake, to be called Maple Leaf Pond, will be located west of the Central Hill Park area, as well as three Light Rail Transit stops to be built along the south boundary of the neighbourhood. 



The community was honoured its fifth Award of Excellence for Best Community this year, excelling in innovative development practices and new urbanism principles to create a master-planned community that promotes sustainability, walkability and beautiful streetscape designs all while maintaining traditional community character and profound respect for the land’s military legacy.



That diversity is also reflected in its mix of housing — from townhomes to apartment condominiums, to $1-million-plus estate homes around the lakes. 

And the demographic mix is diverse, including everything from young first-time buyers, to families, to downsizers, to an ageing-in-place demographic that includes housing for seniors and veterans.



From the breathtaking amenities to the beautiful streetscapes, Village at Griesbach is a special place to live. With so much to enjoy, it’s no wonder the Village was voted Edmonton’s Best Community by the Canadian Home Builders Association – five times.
