Midfield Heights 2024 Construction Update, Development Site Sales and Tree Removal

May 27, 2024


Situated on 24 acres of land north of 16 Avenue NE and east of Moncton Road NE, Midfield Heights has undergone a remarkable transformation from its origins since time immemorial as traditional Treaty 7 territory to an airport runway to a manufactured home park, and soon, into a serene new urban enclave in the inner city.

Today, we’re excited to share updates on development site sales and what to expect during the 2024 construction season.

Development site sales
Midfield Heights is comprised of seven (7) multi-family development sites ranging from 0.78 to 4.2 acres, fully serviced to accommodate a total of between 1000 and 1500 new homes, depending on each purchaser’s specific development proposal.
Development site purchase opportunities will be open to experienced multi-family builders from June 4 to July 9, 2024, through calgary.ca/midfieldheights.

Construction update
The 2024 construction season – our final one – is well underway, building upon the momentum from previous years.

Past construction seasons have witnessed removal of old deteriorated utilities, slope repair, environmental remediation, and installation of new utilities, laying a sustainable and resilient foundation for the future.
To minimize disruption to our golf course tenants in the valley below, construction of a stormwater pond on golf course land has largely taken place over the winter and is now nearing completion. This pond filters stormwater from Midfield Heights and the greater Winston Heights-Mountview area before it reaches Nose Creek, serving as a significant environmental asset.

By fall 2024, we anticipate completing roadways, sidewalks, street lighting, and landscaping, including two park areas and extensive pathways.

Beyond the 2024 construction season, we eagerly anticipate seeing buildings rise.

Tree removal
Tree removal along the project’s boundaries took place the week of May 13.
We acknowledge the importance of these trees; the decision to remove them was not made lightly and is being done to maximize the fullest potential of the redevelopment site. We assure you that for every tree removed, a significantly greater number will be planted within our landscaped boulevards and public park areas, enhancing green spaces for generations to come.

It’s our 75th Anniversary this year!

March 18, 2024

What is now the Winston Heights-Mountview Community Association was first formally incorporated on December 6th, 1949 as the Winston Heights Community Association.  Our community has changed so much over the decades, starting from the initial settlement of Mountview in 1909, the establishment of Winston Heights for veterans returning from World War II, merger of Winston Heights and Mountview in 1963, growth into the Merrill Park and Midfield Park areas, and more recently redevelopment of the neighbourhood for new, young families.  The WHMCA has grown and changed over that time too.  The initial hall was built in the early 1950s and was added to into the 1990s.  The halls have hosted many parties and events for your community ever since.  The WHMCA has also built gardens, skating rinks, playgrounds, and been a liaison with the City of Calgary.

Would you like to help with the 75th anniversary celebrations?  We are setting up a committee to plan for a memorable event in June.  Help us create the fun and contact Carolyn Slipp <events@winstonheights.ca> to join.

Volunteer with the Centennial Garden Committee

February 29, 2024

We have a very beautiful flower garden in front of our community hall that is maintained by volunteers.  Our community budgets some funds for ongoing maintenance and planting and slowely but surely we have been adding perennials to fill in the garden.  In 2023 we were able to add a few more annuals both in pots and in the garden for that constant colour.  We were even successful growing a few plants from seed.  We are very proud of our community gardens and hope you have opportunities to wonder through the area or take a seat and just relax. 

Knowing we have many dedicated gardeners in our community, we wanted to reach out to ask; if you are planting seedlings for this coming spring, can you add a few extra to help us to further beautify our garden?  If this is something you wish to do please touch base and we will arrange to pick them up in order to plant them after the May long weekend.  

If you wish to volunteer in our Centennial garden and adopt a section please get in touch with Marcia at centennialgarden@winstonheights.ca
