Tillicum continues to be a residential community with predominately single family homes, many of which have been renovated or reflect the historic character of development from the early 1900’s. There is a mix of housing types including townhouses, apartments, and duplexes which provide choice to residents.
A greenway, including pedestrian and landscape improvements links the Gorge Waterway and Cuthbert Holmes Park along Dysart Road. Commercial uses along Burnside Road West, and at the Tillicum and Gorge Road intersection, create urban village centres. These centres focus on meeting day-today needs and encourage residents to walk and bicycle. Tillicum Mall and the Burnside Plaza area continue to evolve to be more pedestrian friendly with the inclusion of new multi-family residential and community-scale retail uses, and improved landscaping. The result is a vibrant commercial retail centre for local residents.
The Tillicum area continues to have good access to Trans Canada Highway, major roads, and bus routes
