Who We Are

Award-winning real estate that leaves a lasting positive impact.

Founded in 1994 by David Chard, President & CEO, Chard Development is an urban real estate development firm based in Vancouver, BC. From condominium homes to rental apartments to commercial spaces, we specialize in urban real estate projects in Metro Vancouver and Greater Victoria.

At Chard Development, we believe in integrity, accountability and diversity. We foster long-lasting, respectful relationships with our customers, consultants, trades, partners and colleagues. It is that approach that has driven our ongoing success and supported our reputation for leaving a lasting positive impact on both people and places.

A multi-generational legacy.

Third-generation Vancouverite David Chard has been a leader in urban development for over 40 years. Influencing the retail, office and residential sectors, Dave has spearheaded notable projects across Canada and has developed and consulted for clients including Hudson Bay, Mountain Equipment Co-op, Cadillac Fairview and Ivanhoe Cambridge. Since 1994, Dave’s talented Chard team has been committed to developing condominium and commercial real estate projects in Vancouver and Victoria.

Joined in 2013 by son Byron Chard, this father/son team has grown the company’s portfolio to include a diversity of commercial and residential real estate projects across Metro Vancouver and Greater Victoria. From affordable condominium homes in downtown Victoria, to strata office developments in Vancouver’s Mount Pleasant neighbourhood, to purpose-built rental homes in North Vancouver, Chard Development is an influential voice in urban revitalization.

A track record of success.

Since 1994, Chard Development has completed over 1.3 million square feet of residential and commercial development. We’ve delivered almost 800 homes to the residents of British Columbia with over 600 more set to complete by 2021. Along the way, we’ve gained a reputation for standards that exceed the ordinary – and a loyal team of partners, trades and consultants who help us to uphold those standards.

We’re on track to nearly double our portfolio of completed commercial and residential development by 2021. We are proud to be catalysts for growth and positive forward momentum. And while our portfolio continues to grow, one thing remains the same. We make good on our promises and stand proudly behind the product we deliver.
