In 2009, the 1.27 ha vacant school building site at 5803 Mill Woods Road South in Sakaw was declared surplus by local school boards and subsequently approved by City Council in 2012 for development into seniors’ housing. The City has selected Greater Edmonton Foundation (GEF) Seniors Housing, an experienced seniors' housing provider, to develop and operate housing on this site.
The new seniors’ housing complex will only be developed on the 1.27 ha portion of the overall site that was previously set aside for a school building. The remaining 8.23 ha of planned open space surrounding the housing development will be retained by the City and continue to serve sports, recreation and community uses as identified in the original Neighbourhood Structure Plan.
