Sherbrooke Real Estate Listings and Information
The Sherbrooke neighbourhood was subdivided in 1906, using a grid street pattern, during Edmonton’s early land boom era. The area was annexed to Edmonton in 1913 but remained practically undeveloped and in agricultural use until after the Second World War. In the early 1950s, however, the Sherbrooke subdivision was replotted under the direction of the City’s first town planner, Noel Dant. The Sherbrooke subdivision was one of the first in North America to be designed using the “neighbourhood unit” concept as the basis of its plan. The design is based on a curvilinear street pattern with limited access points, landscaping and variable housing setbacks to discourage through traffic and improve the attractiveness of the neighbourhood.
