We are an experienced team with a reputation for hands-on, quality craftsmanship.

Founded by West Coast real estate developer Dave Chard in 1994, we’re small enough to take every detail personally, and big enough to shape a city.

We are developers of relationships, kickstarters of community, builders of — and believers in — downtown Victoria. We work with a master-builder mentality to consistently develop functional, gracious and architecturally distinctive projects — and we are accountable to their owners and residents. The Yates on Yates is our eighth Victoria development. From Corazon to Escher – and every other Chard development in between – we’ve been committed to developing downtown Victoria’s outstanding potential. The Yates on Yates – our eighth contribution to Victoria – stands as a testament to our ongoing commitment.

Welcome to The Yates on Yates. You’re going to like it here.
