More About Oliver Real Estate
Oliver is one of the most desirable communities in Edmonton, not only because of its central location, but because of its amazing real estate market. Much of the real estate consists of high rise condo buildings that offer low-maintenance living in a convenient location.
Since the neighbourhood is quite old in age, many of the condo buildings date back to the mid-century. These buildings are typically constructed out of concrete and brick, so they are durable and last through the harsh Edmonton winters. The best part about buying a condo in one of these older buildings is that they are typically less expensive than the newer ones. This means you can get tons of great amenities for a low price.
Although most of the buildings in Oliver were built between the 1950s and 70s, there has been a lot of new development in the area in the past few years. Brand new residential high-rises have been gracing the Oliver skyline, offering luxury condos for homebuyers of all kinds. These units are outfitted with the best amenities you could possibly imagine, from smart-home systems to chef’s kitchens, to in-suite laundry rooms.
One of the most attractive qualities of living in a high-rise in Oliver is that you get a spectacular view of the North Saskatchewan River and Victoria Park below. You can enjoy this from your private terrace while you enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning.
Plenty of the new condo buildings in Oliver boast resident amenities, such as fitness centres, swimming pools, and party rooms. Amenities like these make condo living feel like a vacation.
In addition to the condos for sale in Oliver, there are also plenty of single-family homes on the market. The homes are generally smaller in size, though they boast impressive backyards for properties so close to the city centre. The large yards make these homes popular among growing families.

Located in Central Edmonton, Oliver is a vibrant community filled with fantastic parks, restaurants, and shopping centres. All of the city’s best amenities are within walking distance when you live in Oliver, making this one of the most convenient neighbourhoods around.
What draws so many people to Oliver is its proximity to the downtown core. It’s only a 5-minute drive down the street, though it will take you less than 20-minutes to walk there by foot. Because of all the nearby amenities, many residents choose to walk instead of drive.
Not only is Oliver right next to everything the downtown core has to offer, it’s close to Edmonton’s iconic Brewery District where you can find local, craft beer houses. Residents also enjoy being just across the bridge from Old Strathcona, which is possibly the best place in town to grab a drink and a bite to eat.
Oliver itself is home to tons of retailers, restaurants, and boutiques. You can find a large mall along 104 Ave. NW, which has grocery stores, pharmacies, and eateries. Jasper Ave is another spot where you can pick up all your essentials.

All of this is not to mention the popular skating rink located within Victoria Park. During the winter months, this area of town fills with life as visitors of all kinds come to skate in this scenic location.
