Average Listing Price
"Average Listing Price" is the average list price of all residential properties listed on the MLS® System in a given neighbourhood and includes condominiums, townhomes and single family detached homes. This is a market figure only and variations may not indicate a change in the price for any particular property.
Belmead’s design emphasizes an efficient use of urban land. Many neighbouring subdivisions that were planned prior to the 1970s were lower density and thus consumed more urban land. To shift away from this model, the increased density planned for Belmead was intended to preserve agricultural land, conserve energy, and increase the efficiency of service delivery.
The neighbourhood is designed so that multi-unit structures are situated adjacent to public transportation routes and close to schools and shopping facilities. Single-detached houses are grouped on either side of the centre of the neighbourhood.
The neighbourhood map reveals two separate stages of subdivision. The portion west of 187th Street was originally reserved for an urban ring road. With the ring road (Anthony Henday Drive) moved further to the west, this excess land was absorbed into Belmead.
The neighbourhood name, Belmead, fits with the pastoral naming convention for neighbourhoods located within the Primrose subdivision. Belmead is an abbreviation of the French term for “beautiful meadows.”
