With more than 120,000 Scottish Canadians in Edmonton, making up roughly 15 percent of the population, it’s no wonder there are so many restaurants that serve haggis and black pudding.
Scots seem to love Edmonton, and fortunately, there’s a home for everyone here. In fact, Connaught at Griesbach just opened its sales centre in Northwest Edmonton where families from all over the world will enjoy modern condo living in a flourishing multicultural neighbourhood.
New condos for sale at Connaught are conveniently located a short walk from Griesbach Square with Shopper’s Drug Mart, and minutes by car from Northgate Shopping Centre, Londonderry Mall, Castledowns Recreation Centre and much more. On Robbie Burns Day, Connaught at Griesbach’s Scotish homeowners celebrate their favourite poet at over two dozen restaurants in the city with Scotish roots (and dishes). A few popular spots not far from Connaught condos in Northwest Edmonton include The Bothy Wine & Whisky Bar, The Sherlock Holmes Pub, and Three Boars Eatery.
While the Griesbach community has no ties with Scotland, there are plenty of tributes to this Tartan wearing country all around the city. Did you know 135 communities and neighbourhoods out of 305 in Greater Edmonton can be found as place names in Scotland or are based on Scottish family names?
Depending on where you live, you probably also didn’t know that Scottish heritage is enthusiastically celebrated all year in Edmonton with events like highland dance competitions and Tartan Day. This year, the Edmonton Scottish Society hopes to finish construction on a new full-sized indoor soccer dome, not far from Connaught’s new condos for sale in Griesbach.
In addition to their prime location in Northwest Edmonton, homeowners at Connaught also enjoy the many amenities available exclusively to residents of The Connaught including a library, a games room, as well as a fitness facility.
All condos for sale at Connaught feature balconies overlooking gorgeous walking trails and man-made lakes, spacious master bedrooms with walk-in closets, and quality finishes for comfortable living.
