Strathcona Neighbourhood Renewal

Client City of Edmonton

Location Edmonton, Alberta

Construction Completion 2022

EDA provided landscape and urban design services as part of the team led by Al-Terra Engineering for this urban renewal project for the City of Edmonton. The project included landscape design and public communications, with input from residents, resulted in a new vision for the neighbourhood that ‘connects its residents and creates a strong sense of community by promoting walking, biking, and encourages gathering in safe, attractive and inviting public spaces,’ and ‘provides a safe experience for both residents and visitors who move in and through the neighbourhood using all methods of travel.’

Encompassing nearly 17km of roadways the final design included addition of new sidewalks, traffic calming features, separated bike lanes, shared use paths, shared roads, parklets, new areas for tree planting, and re-imagined public spaces. 

The project features the integration of unique transportation, planning and streetscape elements including new protected bike facilities, raised and on-street bike lanes, new shared-use roadways and the introduction of new seating nodes and plantings throughout the neighbourhood.

Our approach resulted in a new vision for the neighbourhood that ‘connects its residents and creates a strong sense of community by promoting walking, biking, and encourages gathering in safe, attractive and inviting public spaces,’ and ‘provides a safe experience for both residents and visitors who move in and through the neighbourhood using all methods of travel.’
