Downtown real estate guide & listings for sale
Downtown is quiet overall, as the streets are quite tranquil - although that is not the case close to the railway line.
Commuting by car is especially convenient in this part of St. Albert. Parking is quite easy, and most homes for sale are a very short car ride from the nearest highway. However, the public transit network in Downtown is sometimes poor. Nonetheless, property owners have access to around 10 bus lines, and bus stops are ordinarily nearby. There aren't many pedestrians out on the streets of Downtown, although most daily needs are easy to carry out on foot.
About one third of properties in Downtown were built in the 1960s and 1970s, while many of the remaining buildings were built pre-1960 and in the 2000s. The predominance of large apartment buildings in the housing stock of this neighbourhood is an important part of its character. Around 70% of the dwellings in the neighbourhood are occupied by renters and owners occupy the remainder. Notably, this neighbourhood is good for those looking for one bedroom homes.
A supermarket is typically reachable within a rather short walk from most properties for sale in this neighbourhood. In addition, those who appreciate dining in restaurants or cafes will have a fair number of opportunities in this part of the city. A decent selection of clothing stores can also be found within a reasonably short walking distance. With respect to education, in Downtown, families will usually be able to reach daycares and schools by walking.
