Listings in Griesbach Edmonton

Griesbach is located in north Edmonton and is bordered on the north by 153rd Avenue, the east by 97th Street, the south by 137th Street, and the west by Castle Downs Road. The Griesbach site was built as a Canadian Forces Base in the 1950s, and military troops and their families lived there. The Canadian Forces decided to combine numerous army sites, including Griesbach, in the mid-1990s. The huge property, with existing infrastructure links and closeness to downtown, presented a great potential for a large-scale rehabilitation project, and the property was given to the Canada Lands Company for reconstruction as a non-military residential district. Griesbach's redevelopment goal was to build a neighborhood that used existing tree and vegetation, highlighted the area's military past, and accommodated a variety of uses and dwelling styles. In 2002, a plan for the new Griesbach neighborhood was approved, and construction began shortly after and is currently ongoing. Single-detached, semi-detached, row dwelling, and apartment buildings make up the Griesbach neighborhood. It was also one of Edmonton's first areas to allow garage suites and reverse housing, and a portion of the community is a LEED ND pilot. A new river and pedestrian system give additional leisure places, while the interior highway network centers on a huge central community park. A commercial village center is planned for the southeast corner, a senior living facility for the northwest, and a potential mixed-use TOD area for the southwest corner. Griesbach's military history is reflected in its street and park names. Major General William Antrobus Griesbach (1878-1945), a veteran of the Boer War and WWI, a practicing lawyer, and Edmonton's youngest mayor in 1907, gave the town its name. From 1917 until 1921, Major General Griesbach was a member of parliament, and in 1921, he was appointed to the Canadian Senate, where he was commissioned as a major general in appreciation of his wartime service.
