A new neighbourhood has been announced for Saskatoon’s south east, and it’s not going to be a small one either. Brighton is set to house 15,505 residents when complete. That’s the same size as the city of Yorkton. When complete it will be the largest neighbourhood in Saskatoon in terms of population.

Brighton is also going to be considerably larger than the bordering communities of East College Park and Arbor Creek at 4,700 and 4,849 respectively.

According to the the city’s 2011-12 population estimates, the largest neighbourhood in Saskatoon currently is Silverwood Heights. This north end neighbourhood is home to 10,483 people. Brighton is also slated to be the second densest community in Saskatoon with 7.4 people per acre over a total of 867 acres. The planned upcoming neighbourhood of Aspen Ridge is the densest at 8.93 people per acre.

The city is taking a different approach with this neighbourhood, making it an all inclusive, taking lessons from previous developments. It will feature a grid layout to discourage non-local traffic and have houses facing park areas while including pedestrian access, similar to Calgary’s Garrison Woods neighbourhood.

It will consist of mostly crescents and cul-de-sac’s and each residential cell will have it’s own pocket park. Sidewalks will be wider and it will have complete streets, accommodating vehicles, transit, and cyclists. An existing body of water will be incorporated into the community and will serve to protect the wetland.

Brighton is expected to accommodate 6,432 homes-44 % single family (2,744) and 56% apartment (668)/townhouse (2,095)/condos (925).

If you are interested in learning more about the Brighton area or are interested in real estate there, contact me and I would be happy to direct you to reputable builders in the area.

  1. Can you tell me when the lots will become available for the Brighton area in Saskatoon? As well, do you know the price points of the lots that will be available first? Thanks!! -SH

  2. Hi, Can you tell me if there will be any bungalow style townhomes built in the Brighton area in Saskatoon? and the price points of them. As a senior from a small town looking at moving to Saskatoon, I’m looking for a bungalow townhome, with attached garage, main floor laundry, walkin pantry in kitchen, and ensuite with walkin closet in master bedroom and a basement. Im looking for the exact same as on 14-315 Ledingham Drive, Saskatoon, only in the Brighton area. I sure do hope that builders/developers realize that there will be more seniors like myself looking for this! Its hard to find this type of townhome in Saskatoon on the east side! At my age I don’t want anything to do with 2 storey buildings and I don’t really want any apartment style condo yet. would you please let me know if something like this will be sold in this area? Would be greatly appreciated! Thankyou~ IW

    • Hi,

      I’m not sure at this point if there will be bungalow condos being built in the Brighton area. The land is just being serviced and construction will not be underway for a bit. There are bungalow style condos with attached garages and basements in Saskatoon in other areas. If you are interested in viewing some of these options, please feel free to contact me at 306-717-1277.
      Thx!
