Edgemont Village

The Edgemont Village Centre refresh is an opportunity to highlight the Village’s distinct identity, enhance its commercial core, and improve the surrounding public space.

By preserving Edgemont’s low-rise character, encouraging diverse housing options, supporting one-of-a-kind retail stores and businesses, and improving pedestrian and cyclist access, we hope to strengthen and celebrate this vibrant community.

Village Centre overview

Main goals of the plan

To maintain and enhance the unique street pattern and streetscapes, the low-rise scale and eclectic diversity of buildings and small-scale stores, the sense of neighbourliness and community, and the village's walkability and pedestrian-friendly character.

Land use

Maintain low-rise built form character and scale, and encourage a diverse mix of local, small scale, and one-of-a-kind retails stores and businesses.

Housing choice

Sensitively introduce ground-oriented duplexes and townhouses within the identified peripheral area to offer a broader range of housing options.

Transportation network

Advance transportation strategies to improve opportunities for walking and safe routes to school, cycling, transit, traffic management, circulation, and parking. 

Economic vitality

Maintain the rhythm of small storefronts that contribute to the strong sense of place and identity of the village, and maintain the boundaries of the existing commercial core to strengthen economic vitality.

Community facilities, services, and amenities

Guide public realm and network improvements to facilitate safe public access, and to provide inviting public spaces.

Park and open spaces

Recognize and enhance Highland and Edgemont Boulevards as the "village heart" with an enhanced Highland Plaza to promote social interaction, gathering, and space for community events.

Environmental sustainability

Support more environmentally friendly buildings and landscapes, and promote green building and water conservation practices.
