Mature Area Sector

Edmonton's mature area sector, or inner city, corresponds with those neighbourhoods deemed mature neighbourhoods in the city's municipal development plan. The sector's neighbourhoods, primarily residential in nature, were essentially built out prior to 1970. It includes the city's central core, which includes its downtown. It also includes neighbourhoods within the five former municipalities that Edmonton absorbed between 1912 and 1964, as well as mature neighbourhoods beyond the central core and these municipalities.

Central Core

Edmonton's central core comprises Downtown Edmonton and its 11 surrounding neighbourhoods including Boyle Street, Central McDougall, McCauley, Oliver, Queen Mary Park, Riverdale and Rossdale on the north side of the North Saskatchewan River and Cloverdale, Garneau, Strathcona and the University of Alberta on the south side of the river.

Downtown - Edmonton's downtown core, officially named as Downtown, is generally bounded by 109 Street and 111 Street to the west, 105 Avenue to the north, 97 Street to the east, Grierson Hill and Rossdale Road to the southeast, and 97 Avenue and Rossdale Road to the south. Development within Downtown is guided by the Capital City Downtown Plan. The plan subdivides Downtown into five smaller neighbourhoods, of which four of the five are further subdivided into sub areas.
