Allendale Real Estate
While development began prior to and during World War I, the Allendale that we see now is the fruit of subsequent years. Around 10% of homes in the community were built during World War II. Half are said to have been constructed around the 1950s and 1960s. A third of the real estate was developed in the 1970s, while the rest were made after the 1980s. So, what started as a rural area has now turned into an attractive residential neighbourhood. Despite the mature neighbourhood, it has a young population. The majority of residents are in
their 20s to 30s.
Being at the centre gives Allendale access to various amenities. Allendale School, which offers Regular Academic, Cogito Academic Alternative, German Bilingual, and Interactions programs for Grades 7 to 9 students, is under the Edmonton Public School System.
