Introducing Laurel Crossing and Aster – Our Southeast Edmonton Communities

Find me on:

Looking for a new home in Southeast Edmonton? Qualico Communities offers two attractive communities in this fast-growing area. One community is established and ready to welcome you, while the other is progressing well in the early stages of development. Read on for more details about Laurel Crossing and its new neighbour, Aster.

Laurel Crossing


This well-rounded community truly has something for everyone. Here, you’ll enjoy prime location, nearby commercial amenities and a variety of family-friendly green spaces.

Convenient location

Laurel Crossing’s location provides quick access to Anthony Henday Drive and Whitemud Drive, for easy travel to all areas of Edmonton. The community itself is minutes away from shopping, restaurants, health care and public transportation.

Parks and green spaces

Any time is a good time to walk, run, cycle or rollerblade on the community’s network of paved, multi-use trails. Along the way, pause to admire one of the scenic storm ponds, kick a ball around a grassy field, or let the kids explore the playground.

Nearby K-9 school

Having a school within walking distance is a huge bonus, and Laurel Crossing has Svend Hansen School within its community boundary, for students in Kindergarten to Grade 9.

Recreation options

Just to the north of Laurel Crossing, across 23 Avenue Northwest, you’ll find one of Edmonton’s newest facilities, The Meadows Recreation Centre. This beautiful 234,419 square-foot complex includes a state-of-the-art pool and fitness centre, plus a long list of indoor and outdoor recreation opportunities.

Named after the cheerful perennial flower that is native to Alberta, Aster is an exciting new community on the east side of 17 Street NW. When it comes to shopping, recreation and schools, Aster is ideally located to access everything Southeast Edmonton has to offer.

Desirable location

As one of the last areas to be developed within the Henday boundary, this community is in high demand. From Aster, it is only a two-minute drive to major roadways, providing quick access to Edmonton’s east side and the rest of the city.

Innovative playground – Coming Soon!

Construction is currently under way on the Aster playground, which will include tandem swings, a swaying bridge, slides and three styles of monkey bars. The community’s design will incorporate pedestrian pathways to connect amenities like the playground with planned green spaces and future wetlands.

Shops and services

The surrounding area already has conveniently located shopping options. Across the street is Tamarack Common, which has a Chalo FreshCo grocery store, restaurants, banking and more. Five minutes to the north, you’ll find RioCan Meadows, an extensive shopping area with Walmart, Superstore, Best Buy, Winners and other big-box stores.

Showhomes – Now Open!

Select Showhomes are now available for viewing in Aster, with more coming soon. For now, please visit the Showhomes in Laurel Crossing to see the builders showcase their work. For the latest details and builder contact information, visit the Showhome Hours page.
