Learn more about what Crystallina has to offer.

Affordable Choices

Take a tour of the show homes available at Crystallina and you’ll start to get a sense of what your life could be like. We offer one bedroom homes for those who are just starting out and want the chance to build up some equity. However, we also understand families need a bit more space, so our two and three bedroom homes are designed with family life in mind. 

Kitchen-2

No matter which type of home you choose, you’ll enjoy being able to keep your car out of the snow when you get to park in your very own garage. All of our homes are also built with upscale details like quartz countertops & a stylish kitchen backsplash. Two and three bedroom homes include an ensuite in the master bedroom and open living areas on the main floor. Best of all, the homes have affordable prices. You'll be able to purchase with confidence, knowing you're backed by a comprehensive new home warranty.

Easy Commuting

Crystallina is conveniently located in North Edmonton, just inside the Anthony Henday loop. With a five-minute drive to CFB Edmonton, this community is a popular choice for military families. However, there are plenty of others who choose to make this neighbourhood their home. After all, it’s just a 20-minute trip to the downtown area via 82 Street, and the easy access to the Anthony Henday means you won’t have trouble reaching any location in the Edmonton area.

Green Spaces

When you live in Crystallina, you’ll get to take advantage of beautiful green spaces just outside your door. In the centre of the community, there’s Crystallina Lake, and there’s also an urban forest in the southwest part of the development. Both locations offer the perfect spot for an early morning run or a bike ride with the family. Kids will love playing outside with plenty of parks close by and you’ll love how easy it is for them to make friends in the neighbourhood.

It’s great to have green spaces right outside your door, but sometimes you want to switch it up a bit. The G. Edmund Kelly Park is a big hit with the kids in the summertime because they can cool off in the large spray park area. The playground structure is fun to use year-round. Of course, you'll probably want to head to Kilkenny Park in the winter because they have two outdoor ice skating rinks. McLeod Park is also good location for pick-up soccer games because there’s a nice, large open field.

Great Schools

Education is important to you, and your kids will have access to great nearby schools. Many kids who live in this area attend the public schools – Lago LindoDickensfield, and Queen Elizabeth – or the French immersion schools – Delwood, Dickensfield, and Ross Sheppard. There are also Catholic schools in the area if you prefer your child to attend school in a religious environment. Those who build in Crystallina now, though, will soon be able to take advantage of the new schools planned for the area. These schools will be just on the outskirts of the development, and your children may even be able to walk to school. 

Convenient Shopping

Living in Crystallina, you won’t have to travel far to get your shopping done. The nearby Namao Centre offers everything from grocery stores to restaurants and shops. Alternatively, you can head to the North Town or Londonderry Mall where you can find everything you need including big box stores such as Simons, Winners or Walmart!

Crystallina is a small, quiet community perfect for those looking for affordable living in a suburban setting. It’s located away from the hustle and bustle of the city, but still close enough that you can easily travel there for sports, the arts, or your work.
