Getting to Know...South Terwillegar

Posted by Tom Shearer on Tuesday, May 1st, 2018 at 12:28pm

We hear the name Terwillegar quite a bit in Edmonton, but did you know the area was named after Dr. Norman L. Terwillegar who was a pioneer and a distinguished surgeon who practised at the Royal Alex for 35 years… me either !

  • Aptly named for its location in the deep South of Terwillegar Heights, the neighbourhood is only about 15 years old and reflects contemporary urban planning concepts yet incorporates aspects of traditional neighbourhood design by utilizing a modified grid pattern. 

  • With about 26% - low density,     45% - medium density,   28% - street oriented units and roughly 1% accounting for mixed use, the higher residential densities and a variety of housing types offer far more choice and selection than typical neighbourhoods of the 80’s and 90’s did.    

  • South Terwillegar offers a substantial inventory of listings, with the average coming in around $337,000.  Solid community scores in the Family category, Safety Services and Recreation amenities, along with an average household income of $134,000 makes the area popular for families. 

  • Houses face the street with parking available at the rear of the buildings.  Numerous open spaces and terrific “walk-ability” throughout, including shopping at Towne Centre and all the other amenities and services on offer, not only makes for a practical and  modern community, but more importantly, a place to call home.
