West 240 will be an exhilarating, inspiring, inclusive, and sustainable community curated through a collaborative planning and design process that will recognize today’s residents and the site’s legacy through innovation.

Community Input

UAPT has been entrusted with developing these lands, beginning with public engagement activities starting in March 2023. Reimagining these lands will include input from all stakeholders and be guided by City of Edmonton policy.

From vision to concept, the master planning process for West 240 involved collaborative engagement to inform the iterative design concepts and key learnings. Now, we are taking the next step as we start the Neighbourhood Area Structure Plan.

The West 240 site was farmed prior to being annexed by the City of Edmonton in 1913.  The University of Alberta purchased the West 240 lands in 1930. The site has played an important role for the University of Alberta Agriculture, Life, and Environmental Studies Faculty (ALES). Developing West 240 presents a new opportunity to contribute to the long-term sustainability of the University of Alberta.

What is a Neighbourhood Area Structure Plan?

A Neighbourhood Area Structure Plan (NASP) is created to guide future development of a neighbourhood. An NASP is guided by higher-level plans, specifically The City Plan and District Plans. An NASP sets the land use, major road network and development pattern in maps and policies as to how the neighbourhood will grow overtime.
