Did you know? Bellevue is thought to take its name from the French term “beautiful view.” A fitting title for a neighbourhood offering spectacular views of both the river valley and the downtown Edmonton skyline. 

Real Estate and Homes For Sale in Bellevue 

An established community boasting mature trees and plenty of charm, Bellevue’s roots can be traced back to the early 1900s. Residential development within the area was mostly complete by the 1950s, with single-family homes accounting for most home styles in the area. Pre and post-war bungalows are especially popular in Bellevue, offering an average of two to three bedrooms and a near-perfect blend of old-world character and modern upgrades.

Due to the neighbourhood’s fantastic location, Bellevue is also seeing an increased number of infill homes. Despite their contemporary status, however, many of these newer properties mirror the architectural style of older homes in the community.

While detached homes account for over 80% of dwellings, Bellevue does offer some attached and semi-detached home options, including a small number of low-rise apartment-style condos.

Did you know? Consisting of only 50 hectares, Bellevue is considered small compared to the average Edmonton neighbourhood. However, the community was considerably larger prior to the construction of the Capilano Freeway (now Wayne Gretzky Drive) in 1969.  

Countless City Centre Amenities 

Thanks to the community’s proximity to city centre, Belleview residents enjoy having quick and convenient access to Edmonton’s trendiest downtown amenities – including the many shops, services and eateries of famous Jasper Ave. But that’s not all; Bellevue also sits within a short distance of Edmonton Northlands and the Edmonton Expo Centre, each hosting some of Edmonton’s most highly anticipated events (K-Days, sporting events, galas, concerts, conferences and the city’s largest trade shows).

Commonwealth Stadium, home to the Edmonton Elks, can also be found six-minutes away in the neighbouring community of McCauley.

Additional Northeast Central Edmonton amenities include:

Did you know? Formerly known as the Edmonton Exhibition Association, Edmonton Northlands was formed in 1879. Operating as both an agricultural society and commissioner of local events, Northlands opened the Northlands Coliseum (Rexall Place) in 1974. Unfortunately, the iconic building (and former home of the Edmonton Oilers) was closed on January 1st, 2018.
