Southwest of the downtown core, this suburban neighbourhood is often divided into two areas: Upper and Lower College Heights.
College Heights was originally developed in the 1950s, but thanks to a combination of nearby amenities and a short drive to downtown, development in the area continues at quite a pace. With a mix of older and brand new family homes, the price range here is quite broad, and high demand for homes in the neighbourhood continues to push prices up.
Big box convenience
The commercial developments in the area include many of Prince George’s big box stores. The local supermarket is Save on Foods, and other big brand names with locations in College Heights include Costco, Wal-Mart, Canadian Tire, Home Depot and Michaels.
