Akinsdale St. Albert Homes & Real Estate

Akinsdale is a mid-size neighbourhood that sits on the outer border of St. Albert. It has a population of ~4,860 with an average age of 41.7. Although there is a healthy mix of apartments, duplexes, townhouses and condos to choose among, single-family homes (built mainly in the 1970s and 1980s) form the bulk of the residential real estate.

The majority of Akinsdale features low-density residential lots interspaced with plenty of green space and large public parks. The Jarome Iginla / Kinex Arenas provide plenty of indoor space for skating, hockey and lacrosse. Children and youth have easy access to a public elementary, French immersion elementary and a junior high school. Commercial services are concentrated on the southern edge of the neighbourhood.

They say location is the driving factor for real estate and when it comes to location, Akinsdale has a very interesting history. Although residential construction in this neighbourhood wouldn’t start until the early 1970s, the planned boundaries of the community included a hard stop at the south-east edge. Why? Edmonton was growing rapidly, swallowing up the surrounding towns. As Beverly, Jasper Place, and more were absorbed into the city, St. Albert held out against annexation. The boundaries of Akinsdale were drawn to discourage the new neighbourhood from being attractive to its larger neighbour.

That doesn’t mean Akinsdale wasn’t attractive in its own right. Despite lacking amenities and even basic infrastructure, residents lined up to claim a piece of Akinsdale. Developers built at a rapid pace for years, unable to keep up with the popularity of the community. In an unprecedented move, and based on the crushing demand, residents were allowed to move into their homes before the accompanying roads and public utilities were finished.

As Akinsdale’s residential boom slowed down, the commercial side of the neighbourhood began to take place. The 1980s brought a new school, a sports arena, shops and services to the district.
