Residential development

According the the neighbourhood description in the City of Edmonton [http://maps.edmonton.ca map utility] , parts of the neighbourhood date back to the 1910s.

The 2001 federal census reports that one in five residences (18.2%) were constructed by the end of World War II. Substantially all residential construction was complete by the end of 1980. In more recent years, some older residences along Stony Plain Road have been demolished and replaced by newer development. There is also some commercial development along Stony Plain Road.

There is a proposal to construct five highrise condominium towers of between 10 and 18 stories at the west end of the adjacent neighbourhood, Glenora, near the intersection of 102 Avenue, 142 Street, and Stony Plain Road. The five highrises could have up to 330 apartment units among them with non-commercial uses limited to the first two floors. This proposal is opposed by the residents of Grovenor and Glenora.
