According to the 2001 federal census, there was a small amount of residential development in the former Clareview Campus neighbourhood during the 1970s. It was at this time that one in twenty (5.1%) of the residences in the neighbourhood were built. There was no further residential development until the 1990s. The remaining 94.9% of the residences were built between 1991 and 2000.[11]

There has been a significant amount of residential construction since the completion of the 2001 federal census. According to the federal census, there were 195 residences in the former Clareview Campus neighbourhood. When the municipal census was conducted in 2005, this had increased to 420.[12]

The most common type of residence, according to the 2005 municipal census, are rented apartments and apartment style condominiums. These account for seven out of ten (74%) of all residences in the neighbourhood, and are mostly in low-rise buildings with fewer than five stories. Single-family dwellings account for roughly one in eight residences (13%). One in ten (10%) are duplexes.[13] The remaining 4% are row houses. Just over half of the residences (52%) are rented and just under half (48%) are owner-occupied.[14]
