Prior to undergoing residential development in the early 2000s, Brintnell was undeveloped and the majority of the area was in agricultural use. But the parameters for the development of Brintnell were already set in place in 1981 when the Pilot Sound Area Structure Plan was approved. The northern portions of the neighbourhood were still under development in 2009.
Brintnell today is surrounded by residential neighbourhoods to the south and west, and Gorman Industrial is located to the east across Manning Drive. The vast majority of housing units (94 percent) are single-family residences in Brintnell; 97 percent are owner-occupied.
Brintnell’s circulation design features arterial roadways along the exterior of the neighbourhood, with a loop and cul-de-sac design on the interior. A right-of-way that runs through the neighbourhood provides a green corridor and pedestrian pathway for residents. Residents also have easy access to Manning Drive via 160th Avenue.
All neighbourhoods in the Pilot Sound area are named for pilots, and Brintnell was chosen to honour Wilfred Leigh Brintnell (1895–1971), who was well-known for his pioneering trips across uncharted areas.
