Chard Development Ltd.

Who We Are.

Chard Development is an urban real estate development firm based in Vancouver, B.C. An award-winning company, we specialize in urban, mid-sized condominium and commercial projects in Metro Vancouver and Greater Victoria.

Founded in 1994 by David Chard, President and CEO, we have evolved from a development management consulting firm to a highly respected merchant developer of commercial and multi-family residential projects. By 2018, Chard will have completed over 1.3 million square feet of its own signature developments.


The Chard Name.

Urban Influence.

We shape spaces that encourage residents to live and work in the heart of the city. We breathe life into underserved corners and have been the first to envision the next desirable centre. The result is a vital urbanism that promotes wellbeing, community and commerce—the reasons we invest in the neighbourhoods where we work.
