Christenson Developments

Greater Edmonton, AlBerta


Christenson Developments is an award-winning, urban village community builder focused on adult communities in Northern Alberta. Since their partnership in 1989 Greg Christenson and Peter Dirksen have grown Christenson Developments from a quality builder of award winning active adult communities to becoming leaders throughout the Edmonton Capital Region in the creation of sustainable urban villages.

Christenson’s Mission Statement “Building Lasting Relationships” strives to create a culture that encourages trust, communication, and respect for customers, and sets the stage to partner with other principled groups sharing similar long term values and aspirations for our community.


The three pillars of sustainability: social, economic, and environment are incorporated into every Christenson development.


Urban villages such as Emerald Hills are examples of Christenson’s commitment to providing choice in housing lifestyles abutting walk-able urban parks with easy access to retail shops, professional services, and public amenities such as libraries, swimming pools, learning, and health facilities.


Leadership in the environmentally sensitive design of cities of the future is practiced by Built Green leadership and work with NRCan and the Federation of Canadian Municipalities on sustainable communities such as Emerald Hills, featuring Eton Park Villas and Eton Park Estates.
