Starling Edmonton Homes & Real Estate
Located in the Big Lake area of northwest Edmonton, Starling at Big Lake is a unique community in that it truly embraces the natural element of its location. Low-impact development initiatives such as the preservation of existing wetlands, along with the construction of additional wetlands and bioswales included in the design of the neighbourhood, help foster appreciation and respect for the ecological significance of the greater Big Lake area.
Nestled in between Anthony Henday Drive, 199th Street, Highway 16, and Ray Gibbons Drive, the community has nearly instant access to some of Edmonton’s key traffic arteries while still being a stone’s throw away from Big Lake and the globally recognized Lois Hole Centennial Provincial Park. Each and every home in the community is located within 200 metres of green space, provided largely in part by the natural Horseshoe Creek corridor that bisects Starling from south to north.
Other natural amenities in the neighbourhood include stormwater ponds, over three kilometres of multi-use trails, a transportation utility corridor with ponds, and a look-out gazebo. The Lois Hole Provincial Park and Horseshoe Lake are two significant wildlife areas located just outside of Starling. Big Lake to the northwest is considered one of the most important wildlife habitats in Alberta because it has two natural wetlands, five additional constructed wetlands, and a regional wildlife corridor.
Although sheltered from the hustle and bustle of Edmonton’s busy business hub, Starling still provides a convenient way to get into the city at a moment’s notice, with transit service extending into the neighbourhood as construction continues. Starling’s collector roadway network keeps the streets calm and quiet by discouraging through traffic while ensuring efficient, convenient access through the neighbourhood.
Residents enjoy convenient access to Edmonton, St Albert, and the rest of Alberta via Anthony Henday Drive and Yellowhead Trail (Highway 16), located just minutes from Starling. The residential distribution of Starling is approximately 60 percent low-density housing, 30 percent medium-density row and low-rise apartment housing, and 10 percent future residential housing.
The name Starling was officially inaugurated on October 27, 2010.
