NORTH GLENORA is bounded by four major roadways: 107 Avenue, 111 Avenue, 142 Street on the west, and Groat Road to the east. It was not until the post World War II economic boom that North Glenora began developing. Mr. Noel Dant was hired as the City’s first planner. He designed communities using a modified grid pattern of streets, incorporating crescents and cul- de-sacs to divert traffic around rather than through residential neighbourhoods. North Glenora was therefore re-subdivided and planned using this new street pattern design, and was one of Edmonton’s first comprehensively planned communities. The street pattern proved so effective at deterring traffic short-cutting.
Residential construction in North Glenora occurred in the 1950s almost exclusively, and the first building project in the neighbourhood was a recreation complex built in 1953. Most of the public facilities and multi-unit housing complexes in North Glenora are centrally located, surrounded by the neighbourhood’s many single-detached homes. Located just north of the neighbourhood, Westmount Mall, Edmonton’s first suburban shopping mall, has served residents of North Glenora since the mid-1950s. North Glenora is one of the smaller residential neighbourhoods in the city.
