Developing community.

Building legacy.

The Story of UAPT

Developing community. Building legacy.

The University of Alberta Properties Trust (UAPT) was formed by the University of Alberta to develop or re-develop several ‘crown jewel’ properties in the middle of one of Canada’s fastest growing cities – and distribute net revenues back to the University of Alberta, contributing to its long-term sustainability.

As residents begin to call these new communities home, they will be building a new future for themselves – and a legacy for generations of University of Alberta students. 


A Request for Proposal (RFP) was issued to solicit submissions from qualified firms to provide professional consulting services and land planning services for the development of a Master Planning and Urban Design Development Plan for The University of Alberta Properties Trust (UAPT) on the lands commonly known as Michener Park.

Integral to the objectives and deliverables of this project, it will include innovation in urban design and the achievement of urban excellence, inclusion of broad community aspirations and identity, social, environmental, and economic sustainability and resilience.

Michener Park’s History

Michener Park opened on November 6, 1967, by the Right Honourable Roland Michener, Governor General at the time. Michener Park was designated as a University of Alberta residence for couples and students with families. This unique community was home to thousands of people from around the world.
