When you’re looking for the best place to rent in central Edmonton, it’s important to view detailed descriptions of the cultural and culinary offerings and amenities nearby. Fortunately, the city has a lively cultural scene including both storied institutions like the Royal Alberta Museum alongside the Art Gallery of Alberta, but also including grassroots and indigenous offerings (with fine arts from Indigenous artists even available in a quarterly subscription box through the Royal Alberta Museum.) Elk Island National Park is also a great place to enjoy Indigenous cultural offerings, though it’s a little further from Central Edmonton. It’s also important to note that Edmonton is nicknamed Canada’s “Festival City” due to the huge number of large and successful festivals that take place here throughout the year. The city’s culinary scene has also come into its own, boasting some of Canada’s best chefs preparing some of the country’s best dishes.
A mecca for education as well as investment, students come from across Canada and around the world to attend the renowned schools found here such as the University of Alberta. There are many post-secondary institutions that draw international students and domestic students, including the aforementioned University of Alberta, MacEwan University, Concordia University of Edmonton, The King’s University, NAIT (Northern Alberta Institute of Technology), Norquest College, and Yellowhead Tribal College. These students often choose to rent student housing in Edmonton at Mainstreet properties due to their close proximity of these bachelor and one-bedroom apartments to their schools, their affordability, and the independence and higher quality-of-life we can offer them. We are also able to offer alternatives to the conventional rental apartment terms of a year lease in some cases, and being within walking distance of school is a huge draw.
It’s not only post-secondary (college and university) education systems that make the City so appealing, though, families and parents love the excellent quality of curriculum and instruction provided by the high-quality Edmonton Public Schools Board (EPSB). With many options throughout the city, great schools are never far from the great rental apartments and townhomes that Mainstreet offers. Schools offering instruction in different languages, schools offering religion-based curriculums, and even a variety of private schools are all found here, so parents can make the right choice for their families.
Living in Edmonton
This incredible city offers something for everyone, from the diverse cultural communities across the city to the awesome quality of life with so many parks and the beautiful Albertan wilderness just a short drive away.

Hosting a growing population of over 1.5 million, Edmonton is the second-largest city in Alberta. Economically, the city is in an advantageous position to continue to attract investment due to Alberta’s low-tax environment and the pro-entrepreneurial and pro-business culture across the province and in the city. This has helped drive the major industries of their economy: the petrochemical sector, the manufacturing sector, the transportation and logistics sector, the environmental engineering services sector, the agri-business sector, the clean technology, the industrial hemp sector, and the life sciences sector. Retail and service industries are also a major employer, and the city’s famous West Edmonton Mall is just one example. A passage from the City’s website sums it up best: “our diversified economy, strong economic drivers, and cost-competitive environment create exciting opportunities to locate, expand, and innovate in Edmonton across many industries.”
This strong economic outlook is one reason that Mainstreet has so many apartments for rent throughout Edmonton, and the continued successful growth of the city’s downtown ICE District is one reason why Mainstreet Tower in Central Edmonton is so popular, within walking distance of the Legislature and so many great shops and restaurants.
