Average Listing Price

This is a market figure only and variations may not indicate a change in the price for any particular property.
Glastonbury is located in west Edmonton, south of Whitemud Drive and west of Anthony Henday Drive. The Hamptons neighbourhood is located to the south, and the future Granville neighbourhood is located to the west, both of which are under varying stages of construction. Prior to urban development, this area was used for agriculture.
The original plan for this neighbourhood was adopted by Council in 1990, but a subsequent wholesale review of the plan was required to keep pace with changing development philosophies and market conditions. The Neighbourhood Structure Plan was adopted in its current form in 1998.
Although construction started in the late 1990s, the vast majority of the neighbourhood was constructed in the early 2000s. The proposed housing mix for the neighbourhood was 60 percent low-density residential and 40 percent medium-density residential units. As of 2008, the ratio was about 88 percent low-density and 12 percent medium-density, but the neighbourhood is still actively under construction. Several major medium-density residential parcels in the eastern portion of the neighbourhood have yet to be developed.
The neighbourhood is bounded on all sides by arterial roadways, and a pipeline right-of-way runs diagonally through the neighbourhood. The interior road network is oriented around a looping collector road, which connects traffic to the arterial roads but separates it from the residential areas. A school/park site is reserved in the centre of the neighbourhood. An open space and connected pathways system is coordinated alongside stormwater management facilities to increase recreational space for residents.
A commercial site is located in the northwestern corner of the neighbourhood, and residents can access amenities in other parts of the city via Whitemud Drive and Anthony Henday Drive.
Neighbourhoods within The Grange plan area reference back to a period in England’s past when estates were known as granges. Glastonbury reflects this theme, as it is named after an English monastery. Glastonbury, England is associated with the legend of King Arthur and the location of the Holy Grail.
