Transcona is built for and by the railroads around the turn of the century. It is blessed/cursed to be between the two transcontinental rail lines for the CPR and CN. This has created large rail yards, as well as sprawling industrial areas on both sides of the community. To the east is the Red River Floodway, limiting the community’s future growth. The area is undergoing a transformation from its railway working class roots, as it is attracting new manufacturing companies (like Palliser Furniture, New Flyer Industries),

There are five main neighbourhoods in Transcona: the part north of the CN rail yards (which includes Melrose, Kern Park, Kildare Redonda, North Transcona, and Canterbury Park to the east), the area north of the diagonal railway spur (including Kildonan Meadows and Lakeside Meadows), Mission Gardens (south of Regent, west of the CN Yards), and South Transcona, south of the railway yards.

Transcona is a mix of older homes, typically 10 to 45 years old, with some small apartment buildings along Kildare Ave, and some older homes with fireplaces closer to Plessis Rd. Homes in this area sell on a average of $217,089. The newer community of Canterbury Park, built up over the past 15 years, has a full mix of housing that sell on average of $266,410.

A small development called Transcona Gardens has larger custom built homes. Kildonan Meadows and Lakeside Meadows to the northwest of Transcona are both built around lakes. The homes in these neighbourhoods sell on an average of $310,318. South Transcona has some smaller older homes, priced similarly to Transcona, but the land southwards is being developed for larger custom-built homes on 1.6 or 2 hectare lots, with some triple garages and tennis courts.
