Listings in Ritchie Edmonton

The advent of the Calgary and Edmonton Railroad line in 1891 and the building of the Edmonton, Yukon and Pacific Rail line that followed Mill Creek Ravine through the Low Level Bridge to Edmonton in 1902 sparked development in Ritchie. When the City of Strathcona merged with Edmonton in 1912, Ritchie became a part of it where it subdivided utilizing a grid street system at that time. Whyte Avenue, which is now known as Old Strathcona, was the focal point of early development. From 1908 until 1949, a streetcar service connected Ritchie to downtown Edmonton, and commercial expansion continued along Whyte Avenue while the bulk of buildings were built before 1950, development and renovations continue to this day, notably in commercial districts. It is a mixed-use neighborhood because of its history and location which is around two-thirds residential, with a few business and industrial structures thrown in for good measure. Single-family houses make up little under half of all residential units in the area, with the rest consisting of a mix of semi-detached homes, row housing, and low- to medium-rise apartments. In addition to the Mill Creek ravine, the neighborhood has a network of parks that run along the neighbourhood's central spine and connect to school sites. Robert Ritchie, previous Mayor of the Town of Strathcona and initial owner of the Ritchie Mill, which is still standing as a historic landmark at 102 Street and Saskatchewan Drive, was the inspiration for the name Ritchie.
