Tigard is a City of 46,000, as its population has increased 1½ times since 1980 and includes an area of 11 square miles. This tremendous growth has coincided with the rapid development of Washington County as a high technology center and more importantly, an attractive place to live. As Tigard continues to grow, the school district is growing to keep up with the population.
Tigard is located just south of Beaverton and spans both sides of Hwy. 217 and is within 2 miles of Hwy 26 and I-5, offering multiple routes into downtown Portland just 8 miles away. Tigard is also home to Washington Square Mall, one of the largest shopping centers in the area. Tigard offers housing in planned neighborhoods and newly developed subdivisions ranging in price from $300,000 for a 3 bedroom 1 bath townhouse; new construction 4 bedroom 2 bath homes beginning at $450,000, up to large 4-5 bedroom newer home starting at $550,000. As with all cities in the metro area; Tigard is also seeing many developments planned for “high density” as part of State Land Use Planning. Lot sizes are as low as 4,000-5.000 sq. ft. but the sq. ft of the homes continues to go up.
Tigard has two senior communities for those of you 55 years of age. King City and Summerfield offers a wonderful selection of small to mid-size homes, condos, and apartments with golf course and country club amenities. This is a great place to retire.
