West Hillhurst lacked any considerable development until 1945, when substantial construction projects to house returning soldiers from World War II commenced. Today, new infill home developments have become the new face of the community, replacing many of the older post-war homes found in the area.

Apart from infills, a variety of real estate in West Hillhurst provides homeownership opportunities for buyers of all sorts with condominiums like The Savoy by Truman offering multi-family living plus several other attached townhome-style projects found along its streets.

West Hillhurst Community Association operates and maintains tennis courts, a hockey and skating rink. Large playing fields for minor league sports such as soccer and football are also found in the area and public events such as bingo are held at the community hall throughout the year.

The Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT) and the Alberta College of Art and Design (ACAD) are located a few minutes northwest of the community, while North Hill Mall and Home Depot are also close by on the Trans Canada Highway (16th Avenue NW).

Restaurants and shops on 19th street include Dairy Lane Cafe, Centex Gas and other day-to-day amenities that make a quick stop off before home easy to do.
