Discover a better way of life
Discover new urban influence
Should walkability be determined by the number of steps taken or by the number of stops made along the way? Stops that lead to enriching your life through relationships: a simple smile or friendly conversation with a neighbour, kneeling down to pet a friendly dog, or stepping into a local business as a support gesture? At Tillotson, walkability is measured not only by how quickly you can get from point A to point B, but also by how those journeys become less about the destination and more about the experience.
MIX OF HOUSING
Everyone is entitled to their own space. A house. Tillotson is designed to not only accommodate every type of home owner, but also to encourage long-term home ownership, whether you are just starting out, winding down, upgrading, or empty nesting. That way, no matter what your home’s needs are now or in the future, Tillotson can continue to be your community of choice.
MIXED-USE & DIVERSITY
As a community founded on the truest principles of urbanism, Tillotson offers a mix of beautifully designed public spaces integrated among a plethora of retail shops, professional offices, and housing options that blend all of the social and economic drivers that enrich every aspect of family, work, and community.
QUALITY OF DESIGN
Design has both beauty and function. Tillotson can be found where the best elements of architecture, public spaces, and naturalization come together to form an engaging and inspiring aesthetic.
Tillotson’s way of life is more centred. Tillotson’s design, with a more traditional neighbourhood structure, emphasizes higher density usage and public spaces at the heart of the community, with a healthy mix of natural settings and urban activity.
Tillotson encourages the use of pedestrian-friendly transportation modes such as bicycles, scooters, skateboards, and walking by utilizing a permeable grid design, while also providing quick, convenient, and carefully managed access to public transportation, vehicle traffic flow, and all major roads and highways.
Making what we treasure last indefinitely is part of enriching our lives. The constant concern of how we adapt current and future technology to provide us with a better way of life is known as sustainability. The preservation of our natural surroundings and ecosystems is as important as embracing lifestyle changes in ensuring the longevity of our homes and communities. Rather than driving, choose to walk. Plant to replenish. Instead of refilling, recharge.
At its core, urbanism represents a welcome return to a more communal way of life. It values ideals like place and belonging. It is a place where the community sincerely wants to share experiences, inspire and encourage one another, and find common ground through diversity and inclusion.

WE CREATE MORE THAN NEIGHBOURHOODS… EVERY TRISTAR COMMUNITY EXPRESSES A LIFESTYLE.
Tristar Communities is a Calgary-based corporation specializing in building master-planned communities. Our strategy is to successfully merge residential, recreational and commercial developments, creating communities that offer a diverse range of home styles and all the amenities necessary to suit families and individuals at every age and stage of living.
Tristar is recognized for the unparalleled quality of life it provides to each and every community. Masterplanned communities differ from subdivisions because amenities are included in the design in the initial stages, planned in collaboration with municipal planners, guaranteeing that residents will be able to count on these to be included. Following our core mandate to create healthy living spaces, Tristar’s masterplanned communities include recreational amenities such as parks, bike paths and jogging trails. We also ensure close access to schools, health care and retail centres.
Tristar Communities anticipates your growing needs. We incorporate affordable multi-unit and single family starter homes, upgraded homes for growing families when they are ready to move-up, estate homes, and retirement villas. We work with a carefully selected group of independent builders to ensure a wide variety of building styles, floor plans, lot sizes, landscape features, and, of course, pricing options. Architectural guidelines incorporating natural elements are put in place to protect and enrich the beauty and value of every Tristar development.
