Tristar is a Calgary Based Corporation Specializing in Building Master-planned Communities

Quality of Life

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.

Healthy Lifestyle

Master-planned 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 master-planned communities include recreational amenities such as parks, bike paths and jogging trails. We also ensure close access to schools, health care and retail centres.

More than Neighbourhoods

Tristar’s communities anticipate 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. We create more than neighborhoods… every Tristar community expresses a lifestyle.

At Tristar, we believe that our communities need to help people to facilitate balance in their personal lives and in their work lives.


The mission of Tristar Communities Inc. is to build true urban communities for young families just starting out purchasing their first home, growing families looking to upgrade, and mature empty-nesters who are ready to enjoy the luxury of an estate or country estate residence. Our goal is to build communities from the ground up, offering a wide variety of amenities to the homeowner such as nearby schools, walking paths, close proximity to retail shopping, business, commercial and professional services. Tristar strategically chooses locations that offer natural amenities such as nearby rivers of water, and amazing breathtaking mountain views. We strive to be the leader in every community we build, to the benefit of our customers, the home builder and ultimately the home owner, as well as the company’s stakeholders. Our mission declares our purpose as a company, and serves as the standard against which we weigh our actions and decisions.


Our vision is to be a progressive leader in land development in and around Calgary, Alberta – to improve the way communities are built, and to be an integral influence in changing and improving the regulations and systems, bringing positive change.
