As part of its long-range development planning, the University of Alberta deemed some of its lands as no longer essential to its academic and research needs. These lands included the significant section of land known as West 240 — a section of roughly 220 acres of land located between the communities of Grandview and Lansdowne, and between Whitemud Creek and 122 Street.
UAPT has been entrusted with developing these lands, beginning with public engagement activities starting in January 2023.
UAPT will hold community engagement events to collect input from neighbouring residents. Go to the project site: www.west240.site
The Soaring property is a 10 acre site in the heart of Edmonton. Located on the edge of the North Saskatchewan River in the Brander Gardens neighbourhood, Soaring provides easy access to the Whitemud Freeway and the city’s boundless amenities.
The property was donated to the University of Alberta in 2010, with the university maintaining the house as a conference centre and renting it out for events such as weddings.
The University found the property could not support the university’s teaching or research mandate. The decision was made to decommission and clear the site. The University’s long-term asset management strategy focuses on better using the University’s owned space, reducing its reliance on leased space, renewing or disposing of buildings, and prioritizing where the institution needs to invest its limited resources to address deferred maintenance.
The property was then transferred to the University of Alberta Properties Trust (UAPT) with the mandate to redevelop the property.
