Duplex Living Defined

In short, duplexes are multi-family homes containing two units in the same building. Duplexes are commonly side-by-side, but they may consist of two floors with separate entrances.

This typically involves either buying an existing, older home and demolishing it to build a brand new one OR buying a vacant lot (in which the home has already been removed) for the same purpose.

For Edmonton home buyers seeking both a contemporary new home and a mature community characterized by tree-lined streets, walkability, established amenities, and endless charm, infill homes represent the best of both worlds.
