Improving the human experience through thoughtful planning, progressive design and a focus on building community.
The Burrard Group (and its affiliate companies) have been active in the real estate industry since 1977, building a diverse portfolio of successful master-planned communities, multi-family and single family residential developments, commercial projects, lodging properties and golf courses.
Every project begins with an aspirational vision and a core understanding of the location and community. Sound planning practices and premier site selection are fundamental tenets of our development and asset management processes, and we focus on creating value for our both our company's stakeholders as well as the general public. With meticulous attention to detail from start to finish, our projects showcase forward-thinking design and construction is always of the highest quality. The results are landmark properties that offer enhanced environments, elevated lifestyles and enriched communities.
Adding value to communities, the environment and peoples' daily lives doesn’t stop at the property line. We believe that as a developer (and as citizens), there is a social responsibility to strengthen the fabric of our society. Through our charitable foundations, we have donated to, developed and operated significant charitable and non-profit initiatives that have given back to the communities in which we live and work. From healthcare to arts and culture, developing all aspects of the community is at the core of our very being.
