Location & Description of Hazeldean

Hazeldean is located in south Edmonton near the university area and sits between 72nd Avenue to the north and 63rd Avenue to the south. From east to west its boundaries are the CP Rail Irvine to the west and Argyl Park to the east. The neighbourhood is mostly grid-like and has wide blocks, rather than tall blocks, so most houses are arranged east to west and either face north or south. Lots aren’t very wide, but are quite long. Zoning for Hazeldean is separated by the old railroad which runs east to west through the neighbourhood as a trail and park now. To the north of the trail, houses are zoned RF3 and to the south of the trail, houses are zoned RF1. Most of Hazeldean has treed boulevards along the avenues.

Although Hazeldean has been part of the City of Edmonton since 1912, most of it was developed in the Post-war era. Basically if you don’t like 40s and 50s houses, Hazeldean is probably not for you – that is unless you can afford an infill in the area. There has been very little construction in Hazeldean in the last 50 years. As always, the lack of infill homes is usually a combination of factors, but the majority of owners seem to be quite happy with their older houses.

More than half of Hazeldean homes are single family homes – houses as we usually refer to them. There are quite a few duplexes and townhouses in the area as well, but only a small fraction. And just 25 units are low-rise apartments.

Hazeldean has a fairly even mix of renters and owners – or more specifically owner occupied units and landlord owned units. Since Hazeldean has many smaller, less expensive homes, it can be a great place for investing in rental properties. Homes in the area are expensive, mind you as far as Edmonton is concerned, but rental rates are historically low in the area, so the values will likely remain high.

Access & Parking

Parking in Hazeldean should be no problem. The biggest factors affecting parking are rear drive access and frontage. Almost all homes in Hazeldean will have a back alley and most of the lots are a reasonable size. Although not as wide as some lots in Edmonton, there should be enough room for people to park on the street and in the back of their property.
