Like many cities in North America, the City of Edmonton is adopting a Nodes and Corridors Network to focus population, business and employment growth.
The strategy identifies two key location types in the city: strategic hubs (“nodes”) and streets (“corridors”). These evolving spaces are important destinations in Edmonton, where people already interact and move in an accessible, safe and comfortable built environment. While each node and corridor has a unique character, they all support a strong sense of place and serve as natural areas to focus on in coming years.
In The City Plan, Blatchford-NAIT-Kingsway has been identified as one of Edmonton’s six major nodes. That means it’s a vibrant urban centre connected by transit, close to concentrated housing and employment. Because of its status as an important urban hub, Blatchford will remain a priority for future investment to support community equity, opportunity and connectedness. Blatchford is also next to Kingsway, one of nine primary corridors.
