Griesbach Real Estate Listings and Information
The Griesbach neighbourhood is located in north Edmonton and is bounded by 153rd Avenue to the north, 97th Street to the east, 137th Street to the south, and Castle Downs Raod to the west. Griesbach is a developing neighbourhood in an established part of the city. The neighbourhood represents a major redevelopment effort undertaken by the Canada Lands Company on the site of a former Canadian national defense facility originally developed in the 1950s. Over the last 50 years, Canadian Forces Base (CFB) Griesbach has housed many military personnel - whether in barracks or families in the married quarters. Children went to school there, customers bought gas at the Canex, people played hockey and worked out at the gym. With the decision in the mid-1990s to consolidate several army bases at Lancaster Park (at Namao, north of Edmonton), activities at Griesbach started to wind down. By the end of 2000, many facilities had been relocated to Namao. The neighbourhood began redeveloping as a non-military residential community in the early 2000s, and development was still actively underway as of 2010.
