A visual tour of Alberta Avenue through the years.
118 Avenue is rich in history and is one of the oldest streets in Edmonton. Historically, it was a route between the City of Edmonton in the west and the Town of Beverly in the east. The Alberta Avenue name applies to the portion from 109 Street to Wayne Gretzky Drive.
Alberta Avenue has been going through a revitalization process since 2006, starting in 2008 with the City of Edmonton’s Streetscape Project of the Avenue.
In addition, many new building facades are evident as any commercial property owners applied under the City’s Facade Improvement Matching Grant Program
We will be adding more historic pictures of Ave businesses to this page as time progresses.
