Welcome to The Ritchie Four Corners
Ritchie is a residential neighbourhood in south east Edmonton, developed during the immediate post-war period. It is named for the original owner of the Ritchie Mill and former mayor of the City of Strathcona. The population of Ritchie enjoys good access to the nightlife of nearby Old Strathcona and the Mill Creek Ravine. Whyte Avenue provides good access to the University of Alberta. 99 Street, which passes through the neighbourhood, provides good access to the downtown core.
A bustling, working class neighborhood in the 1960's Ritchie has been undergoing a resurgence for the last decade. With plenty of infill housing, recent neighborhood infrastructure improvements, and now, participation in the Corner Store Project, Ritchie has become one of the most sought after home and business markets in the City of Edmonton. With much work to come, the "Four Corners" as they are known to residents, are undergoing a transformation from a tired and worn corner to a neighborhood hub for activity.
The neighborhood is anxiously awaiting the construction of Ritchie Market, expected to open in 2016, that will see a new public house, a bicycle chop, a Transcend Coffee, and a new home for Acme Meats. In addition, Ritchie will see the existing structures receive facade and infrastructure improvements and a new "pocket" park on the southwest corner along with some additional parking.
