The MacTaggart neighbourhood is located in southwest Edmonton and forms the southeaster boundary of the Terwillegar Servicing Concept Design Brief (SCDB). MacTaggart is one of 7 neighbourhoods planned for the Terwillegar SCDB. The MacTaggart Neighbourhood Area Structure Plan (NASP) was approved by City Council in 2005 and construction of the new neighbourhood began very shortly thereafter. The neighbourhood was still actively under construction as of 2009. More about MacTaggart...
The neighbourhood’s connections with the Whitemud Creek Ravine, a tributary of the North Saskatchewan River Valley, as well as with Anthony Henday Drive and Rabbit Hill Road provides residents with high-value access to natural outdoor amenity space and excellent roadway connections to other parts of the city.
Residential construction began in 2005, so the 2006 Census of Canada data provided in this neighbourhood profile reflects a very small number of dwelling units and residents. While the housing unit make up of the neighbourhood in 2006 was 100% single-detached homes, the plan for the neighbourhood is to provide a housing mix of 60% low density residential and 40% medium density residential units including a combination of single and semi-detached housing, row housing, stacked row housing and low rise apartments. Further, while parks, recreation and commercial amenities have not been completed yet, the plan for MacTaggart is to construct a neighbourhood that incorporates a compact mixture of land uses and promotes pedestrian and bicycle travel through the neighbourhood and into other neighbourhoods. A school and park site will be built in the northeast corner of the neighbourhood. The MacTaggart neighbourhood is located to the southeast of Terwillegar Towne, which incorporates commercial amenities and services along 23rd avenue. The Leger transit centre and new southwest recreation centre are also located along 23rd Avenue.
The MacTaggart neighbourhood takes its name from Sandy Auld Mactaggart, a local entrepreneur and philanthropist with provincial, national and international achievements in business, the arts, and education. Sandy Auld Mactaggart was born in Glasgow, Scotland, in 1928 and moved to Canada at the age of 1.
