Just over one in five residences (22.3%), according to the 2001 federal census, were constructed between 1946, though neighbourhood information in the City of Edmonton map utility indicates some of these earlier residences are being replaced with newer construction.

Just under half (44%) of residences, according to the 2005 municipal census, are single-family dwellings. Another one in five (20%) are rented apartments in high-rise buildings with five or more stories, while one in five (20%) are apartments in low-rise buildings with fewer than five stories. The remaining residences are divided almost equally between row houses (8%) and duplexes[10] (7%). Just over half (51%) of all residences are owner-occupied with just under half (49%) are rented.[11]
