*This successful project was completed in partnership with the City of Edmonton and the Government of Alberta.
Safe and affordable housing is a key ingredient in the health, well-being and economic prosperity of any community. There are over 100 social housing sites managed by Civida.
This is the first social housing regeneration project in the City of Edmonton. In partnership with the City of Edmonton and others, Civida is embarking on an energizing and ambitious project to redevelop and revitalize the Londonderry housing complex in the Kilkenny neighbourhood in north east Edmonton.
Taking a fresh, new approach, the project partners will form the foundation from which the community as a whole will prosper, and establish a place that people will be proud to call home. Learn more about the Kilkenny community in this Neighbourhood Profile >>
Located in the north-east Edmonton community of Kilkenny, this housing complex is owned by The City of Edmonton and is managed by Civida. Built in 1971, the site is at the end of its life cycle.
In 2013, it was decided to begin vacating the units through attrition. With a plan to redevelop the property in the coming years, all remaining tenants were giving a notice of redevelopment in Spring 2014.
The community consultations, which began with the first open house held on January 25, 2016, should be completed by September 2016. Demolition will take a few months and should be completed by November 2016. It is anticipated construction will begin in 2017.
To help meet current and future housing needs, the development will contain 240 homes representing a mix of market-rate and subsidized homes that are indistinguishable from each other. This mixed-market model will helps to ensure the project can be sustainable.
Civida is home for over 9,000 families in the Edmonton Metropolitan Region. As the largest provider of over 4,500 social and over 600 near market homes, we work with organizations and government agencies to develop, support and improve our communities and the lives of our families and individuals. A home is more than just a roof overhead; it should be a safe and secure place where families build relationships and communities, where they enjoy economic prosperity and where they are happy and healthy.
City of Edmonton
The City of Edmonton believes that safe, adequate and affordable housing is fundamental to the physical, economic and social well-being of individuals, families and communities. Through its Affordable Housing Strategy, the City is taking a strong leadership role and using a full tool box comprised of funding, land, regulations, partnerships and policies to meet a wide range of affordable housing needs in all areas of the city.
The Londonderry housing complex is owned by The City of Edmonton and is managed by Civida. At it’s peak occupancy, this site was home to approximately 80 families.
Built in 1971, the site is now at the end of its life cycle. Through this redevelopment, new, safe, accessible housing, with a mix of subsidized and market housing, along with community facilities and other neighbourhood amenities will emerge.
From the demolition to the consultations, and ultimately, the new construction, watch here for the images that show the activity and highlight the people behind this energizing and ambitious redevelopment project that will revitalize this north east Edmonton neighbourhood.

The Phase 2 public meeting was held at the Kilkenny Community League on April 26, 2016.

Thank you for joining the conversation.
We are committed to a planning and redevelopment process that is inclusive, transparent and driven by our values. Over the course of this project we engaged residents, families, neighbours, businesses, organizations, community partners and the public in a meaningful way that generated a shared sense of commitment to this site redevelopment. Through collaboration and engagement we have the opportunity to have a positive impact in the community that this housing complex is a part of.
Using a phased approach, between January and September 2016, we held open houses and public meetings in the Kilkenny neighbourhood to enable people to contribute to and be engaged in this project. Through these consultations we shared information and provided people with the opportunity to learn, ask questions, share thoughts, discuss ideas and review concepts.
Where We Are Now
Our Public Consultations have ended. Civida continues to work with the City of Edmonton to ensure there is conformance to city guidelines and regulations. Read the Londonderry Public Consultation Final Report here >>
