Ellsworth creates a forest of trees

Chard Development’s Ellsworth is now complete at Main & 7th. The striking architecture of this new development has certainly been turning heads, but did you know that it also carries a compelling environmental story?

Ellsworth was designed to resemble an offset stack of boxes, resulting in interesting overhangs and many large exterior terraces. The rooftop terrace – available for all residents to enjoy – boasts urban agriculture as well as multiple lounge and dining areas. But it’s the exterior building panels that carry this story. Through their partnership with Forest Farmer (https://thecarbonfarmer.ca/), AL13 Architectural Systems – the creators of these exterior panels – plants a tree for each panel sold.

Ellsworth boasts 298 of these panels, which means an entire forest of trees and a positive impact for generations to come!
