Montgomery Place Saskatoon; A brief history
Montgomery Place is a post World War II community erected for veterans outside Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, which consists primarily of residential homes. It was amalgamated within the city of Saskatoon in 1956, and is now a National Historic Site. Montgomery Place has an average household size of 3.2 persons, and homeownership is at 93.7%. According to MLS data, the average sale price of a home as of 2013 was $403,840.
It was named in honour of Field Marshal The 1st Viscount Montgomery of Alamein, the famous Ulster Scots commander in the British Army during the Second World War.
Most of this neighbourhood was built after World War II as a part of the Veterans’ Land Act settlement plan. Ten years later in 1955 it became a neighbourhood of Saskatoon The area was designated a National Historic Site on July 4, 2016. It was named after Field Marshal Lord Montgomery – ‘Monty’ – and most street names honour notable people and places associated with the war.
The neighbourhood was considered to have reached full build-out in the early 1980s, however in the years since some additions have occurred. Current (2013) development plans for the region call for an expansion of Montgomery Place to the west of Chappell Drive, with additional residential development (previously, the area had been earmarked for a light industrial district).
Beginning in 2012, construction of residential development north of 11th Street and south of the 11th Street Bypass (constructed as part of the South Circle Drive project) began, which has added the first apartment-style multi-family developments to the community.
No time frame has been presented on the western expansion. With the completion of Circle Drive, there is also potential future development land available on the west side of Dundonald Avenue, which as of 2013 no longer connects to Valley Road or the City Landfill and has a number of lots that were left vacant for decades due to uncertainty over the eventual outcome of the Circle Drive alignment.
A new law has been put into place in this community that you can no longer sub-divide lots. The community wants to keep large spacious yards a tradition for many years to come. en.wikipedia.org · Text under CC-BY-SA license
