The MacEwan Neighbourhood Area Structure Plan was approved by City Council in 2001, and construction began shortly after. Higher residential densities and a strategic mixture of land uses within the district were incorporated to make more efficient use of space and resources by design and to develop MacEwan in a more environmentally conscious fashion. Homes in MacEwan Edmonton are located in southwest Edmonton and forms part of the Heritage Valley.
MacEwan offers detached houses, duplexes and condominiums, as well as commercial, institutional, and recreational land uses. The Victory Christian Centre occupies a significant portion of land in the south-central part of MacEwan. The Centre consists of church and school facilities and was in place prior to the residential development of the neighbourhood.
