Aspen Ridge is the next neighbourhood to be developed in the University Heights Sector. The neighourhood area is located on 638.71 acres (258.4 hectares) in Saskatoon's northeast.
The neighbourhood is bound by the proposed provicial perimeter highway to the northeast, by the North East Swale to the northwest, by University of Saskatchewan agricultural lands to the south and by the Evergreen neighbourhood to the southwest.
It has been designed to be an attractive walkable neighbourhood with a variety of housing choices with convenient access to schools, services, recreation, and transit. The design of this neighbourhood, in addition to the land within the neighbourhood boundary, consideration was given to the neighbourhood’s integration with the North East Swale and the Evergreen Neighbourhood. This integration will provide convenient access to neighbourhood services and amenities.
The Neighbourhood Concept Plan was approved by City Council on June 23, 2014. Lot sales for the first phase of development are expected to begin in summer 2015.
