The majority of these recently constructed homes are in a new development bounded by 119 Street to the West, 114 Avenue to the South, and the Kingsway shopping district to the Northeast.[8]

The most common type of residence in the neighbourhood, according to the 2005 municipal census, is the single-family dwelling. These account for six out of every ten (60%) of all residences. Approximately one in three residences (34%) are apartments in low-rise buildings with fewer than five stories. The remaining 6% of resicences are duplexes.[9] Just over half (53%) or residences are owner-occupied, with the remainder being rented.[10]
