The sold-out Ellsworth development in Mount Pleasant has made significant strides in its construction since our previous update. Back in February, crews were busy forming the underground parking garage and hadn't yet hit grade. The warmer months that followed have proven to be high-yielding, with work on the development reaching its final height, and glazing gradually finishing the lower levels of the building.

The ten-storey building at 209 East 7th Avenue has made a mark on the streetscape with its offset stacked modules, which altogether comprise 89 residential units. Approximately 7,000 square feet of commercial space, equipped to house a full-service restaurant and retail, is spread across the main floor.

Designed by Musson Cattell Mackey Partnership, the building's exterior sports a vernacular of white and brown spandrel panels wedged between tinted windows. The building's rooftop will be adorned with a 3,500-square-foot terrace with ample seating space, plus an outdoor kitchen and barbecues for entertaining and lounging.

Chard Development has made a name for itself in the city since its founding over 20 years ago by third-generation Vancouverite David Chard. The boutique residential and commercial developer will expand its portfolio to include over 1.3 million square feet, split between properties in Vancouver, Victoria and Toronto.
