Your New Malmo Plains Home in Edmonton
With a rich agricultural history, Malmo Plains was initially part of the farming facility of the University of Alberta and was gifted its name for the rare soil in the area, which is called ‘Malmo silty clay loam.’ The community came under the purview of the Mature Neighbourhood Overlay Development Plan, which saw the area transform into a flourishing residential abode.
Urban development and construction of homes commenced in the 1960s when a majority of its dwellings were built, and one out of every two residences, about 51% of the homes, are beautiful single-family detached houses. Blessed with an old-world charm and post-war styling, many of these homes are bungalows, while others feature 2-stories or multi-level splits. Nestled in the neighbourhood's west end, the university’s family residence, Michener Park is reserved exclusively for students, families and couples, while close by a 500-unit multi-family development is currently being constructed between 51st Avenue and 49th Avenue. Plus, the California Lansdowne development provides potential homeowners with a choice of trendy condominiums as well, so there is an abundance of versatile housing options to suit different requirements.
Malmo Plains Elementary School and the Maria Montessori School are situated right at the heart of the community, and they are both established around the community's park site. So, these schools together with St. Martin School and Lansdowne Elementary meet the elementary education needs of the kids in the area, while Avalon Junior High, Harry Ainlay High School and L.Y Cairns School provide robust secondary learning programs. In addition, because there is an array of good educational establishments around the neighbourhood, parents and kids are always spoilt for choice. And, of course, the University of Alberta campus is only a few minutes away and is easily accessible by bus or LTR.
