The New Community of Haddow
The Council approved the Haddow real estate plan in 1993 and construction began only in the late 1990s. Before being taken up for residential development, the land was used for agriculture. The first of the buildings were built in the late 1990s, but a majority of Haddow homes for sale were constructed in 2000 onwards. Construction went on from 1996 to 2014 although most of the construction was completed by 2007.
The community of Haddow gets its name from the Edmonton city engineer by the name Albert Walker “Bert” Haddow, who served for 40 years as the city’s engineer. Originally from Ontario, Haddow relocated in 1910 to Edmonton and was employed in the engineering department. In 1919, he earned the designation of head city engineer. Haddow was instrumental in the construction of roadways, bridges, and underpasses. He is renowned for his supervision of the construction of the city airport. The engineer is also highly acclaimed for the Riverside golf course development.
