Terwillegar Towne has a population of 6627 residents and the vast majority of these live in single family homes (80%), the remaining percentage reside in duplexes, townhouses and apartment style condominiums. Terwillegar Towne was the first community in Edmonton to be planned and built in a neo- traditional design model, and provides an example of a New Urbanism-style development within the city. New Urbanism features include roadways designed to encourage pedestrian use, houses situated closer to the street to encourage interaction among residents, vehicular traffic that is dispersed throughout the neighbourhood, and a Towne Square to provide the focus for the community.
