The Southgate Center Area is comprised of Lendrum Place, Malmo Plains, Lansdowne, Grandview Heights, Parkallen, Allendale, Pleasantview, Aspen Gardens, Westbrook Estates, Blue Quill Estates, Royal Gardens, and Greenfield.

Lendrum Place: The neighborhood was named in honor of Robert Lendrum, one of Edmonton’s early land surveyors and is located in Ward 10. Lendrum Place is predominately residential in its character and appeal with most of the properties being single-family homes. However, there is a good selection of Apartment dwellings located adjacent to many of the bus routes in the area with schools and a community league site near the center of the neighborhood. There is a commercial plaza located along 111th street with additional shopping areas at the nearby Southgate Shopping Center. There is very little sales data available making it difficult to provide an average listing price of the homes in the area. This would signify that home ownership is high and there is little transient ownership.

Malmo Plains: Located just minutes from the University of Alberta South Campus, is located in Ward 10 and is a typical example of Edmonton’s mature neighborhoods. Developed during the 1960’s, this area contains a good mix of single, semi-detached, and row houses along with a good selection of low and high rise apartment buildings.

While most of the homes here are single family homes there are multi-family complexes bordering 40th avenue and 122nd street. There are four schools located in the area with the High School being co-located with a large community recreational area that boasts the Confederation Pool. While commercial development here is extremely limited, residents can find ample amenities in the surrounding neighborhoods and the nearby Southgate Mall. Homes here are older and so demand is not as high as in some of the other areas, but as a result, the homes are much more affordable ranging from the low $100,000 to a modest $300,000 Canadian.
