Location

MacTaggart is the most southerly neighbourhood in the Riverbend-Terwillegar area. It runs east to west from Rabbit Hill Road to the river valley and north from the Henday to MacTaggart Drive. It’s not a huge neighbourhood at just 259 acres or one square kilometer. It does have a very long border with the river valley which allows for a lot of homes to border it. The Google Map boundaries are incorrect so I had to draw a map for this profile.

Build Years in MacTaggart, Edmonton

A chart of when homes were built in MacTaggart, Edmonton

Construction started right after the neighbourhood was established in 2005. Work seemed to have peaked n 2010, but then there was a huge spike of units again in 2016 – more than any other year. MacTaggart really is a very new neighbourhood.

Assessed Values in MacTaggart, Edmonton

Assessed Values in MacTaggart, Edmonton

Values in MacTaggart according to the City of Edmonton assessment are often under $200,000 for a lot of the condo units and then there are a lot of values set at $350,000. After that the homes get quite expensive (they are newer, larger homes on fair sized lots after all) and they are often assessed at $700,000 or around that value. Listings in MacTaggart will reflect these high values.

Home Types in MacTaggart, Edmonton

Home Types in MacTaggart, Edmonton

87% of MacTaggart is houses with under 4% as apartments and under 4% as townhouses. Just ove 5% are duplexes. This data is old, since a lot of construction has happened since then. The other data suggest that a lot more condo units have been built since this last census.

Lot Sizes in MacTaggart, Edmonton

Lot Sizes in MacTaggart, Edmonton

Lots in MacTaggart are actually quite large. This usually makes them more desirable. It seems like the City was planning for the area to be more expensive considering how large the lots are and how many are backing onto the river valley.

Zoning in MacTaggart, Edmonton

A chart of zoning in MacTaggart, Edmonton

Zoning in MacTaggart is a lot of RSL and RA7 zoning. Because this data is up to date it shows how many more condos have likely been built since 2011. There is some duplex and row house zoning as well as a small amount of RF1 zoning – under 5%.

Occupancy in MacTaggart, Edmonton

Occupancy in MacTaggart, Edmonton

There were no renters in MacTaggart at the time of the municipal census. This has a lot to do with how new the neighbourhood was at the time. This number will likely decrease over time.

Condos in MacTaggart

There are seven condominium complex in the neighbourhood:

  • Glen Avon Heights – A gated half-duplex or tri-plex bungalows at 4058 MacTaggart Dr. Very fancy!
  • MacTaggart Ridge Gate – A lowrise apartment on Mullen Place.
  • MacTaggart Ridge Townhomes – Townhouses with attached garages.
  • Ravine Point At MacTaggart Ridge – Townhouses at Mullen Place.
  • Waterstone – A lowrise apartment at 6079 and 6083 Maynard Way.

Schools

Nellie Carlson School – a kindergarten through grade 9 school – 4110 MacTaggart Drive

Parks & Recreation

As with a lot of communities in the area, MacTaggart has direct access to the river valley. It also has some parkland at the Nellie Carlson School ground.

Access & Parking

Homes with a Garage in MacTaggart, Edmonton

Homes with a Garage in MacTaggart, Edmonton

Not that many units in MacTaggart have garages. This is likely due to a large number of townhomes and apartments parking in stalls outside. This puts some pressure on street parking, but nowadays neighbourhoods are fairly well planned. It shouldn’t affect the way the neighbourhood looks or functions.

Parking is ok in some areas of MacTaggart and pretty sparse in others. It depends on the house sizes but with pretty decent site width, it should be alright.

Access for MacTaggart is fairly decent for a newer neighbourhood – 9 points of access – one for every 132 homes. Most people in MacTaggart drive, which is no surprise. Access to Rabbit Hill Road is ok and likely most people will be on their way to the Anthony Henday or Terwillegar Drive in good time.

Transit To and From MacTaggart Heights

There are 17 bus stops in MacTaggart – one for every 70 homes. This is pretty decent and should make a potential walk to the bus pretty short.
