Grant MacEwan served as an alderman and Mayor of Calgary, as a member of the Legislative Assembly, and was the leader of the Alberta Liberal Party. From 1966 to 1974 Grant MacEwan served as the lieutenant-governor of Alberta, and received several honorary degrees over the course of his distinguished career.

Macewan is bounded on the north by the Anthony Henday Drive, on the west by 127 Street, on the east by 111 Street, and on the south by Ellerslie Road.

Approximately half of the residences are single-family dwellings. Another three in ten are rented apartments and apartment style condominiums. The remaining one in five are duplexes. Four out of five residences are owner-occupied with only one in five being rented.

On July 21, 2007, a $20 million fire destroyed a 149 unit condominium complex, which was under construction, along with 18 duplexes. The fire, which was attributed to arson, was the largest residential fire in Edmonton history.

There is a single school in the neighborhood, Victory Christian School.
