There was such a demand for this atmosphere that the Moonlight Express was started. The railway picked people up in Edmonton on Saturday mornings, took them to Alberta Beach, then picked them up Sunday night to take them back to Edmonton.
Soon people began purchasing and building their own cabins and small businesses. On January 1, 1999, the summer village of Alberta Beach became a village.
In 2006, Alberta Beach had a population of 884 living in 731 dwellings, a 16% increase from 2001. The community has an area of 1.98 km2 (0.76 sq mi) and a population density of 446.3 inhabitants per square kilometer.
Alberta Beach, Lac Ste Anne and the area never gained the prominence it deserved. There was never a promotion of the Lake or the communities living around it.
In 2007, we decided to promote the area as a satellite community and the concept of Alberta Beach Estates came into existence.
It is going to be the pride of Canada. We decided to put Life First. First of its kind in Canada, the subdivision is slated to have every building, be it residential or commercial, built of non-flammable exteriors, making it one of the safest communities to live in. Each building is also mandated to have Solar Panels for generating electricity and tied to the grid. Extensive use of SIP Panels (Structural Insulated Panels), will make the buildings at least 40% more energy efficient than the conventional buildings. With water ponds and storm water harvesting, we will protect the environment as well.
Start in an affordable home, graduate to an estate home. After the kids become independent, move to an Adult abode. And when the need arises shift to a Seniors’ complex. You never have to move out of the circle of family or friends.
We are proud of our Vision. Live “In Perfect Harmony With Nature”.
