The Northeast Edmonton community of Belvedere encompasses all real estate located east of 66th Street, south of 137th Ave and west of the LRT corridor. A mature neighbourhood, Belvedere was formerly a part of the Village of North Edmonton, annexed by the greater City of Edmonton in 1910. Despite the community’s long history, most residential construction did not occur until the 1950s, emphasizing single-family homes. Over the last few decades, development in and around the area has resulted in a tight-knit and family-friendly neighbourhood, celebrated for its array of affordable home styles and proximity to amenities.
