Cressey Development Group’s latest luxury development in Kerrisdale connects buyers to the charming and intimate neighbourhood
Kerrisdale has long been one of Vancouver’s most sought-after neighbourhoods in which to live, work and play. The quaint, tree-lined community’s rich history dates back to 1905. Noted as an upscale area of Vancouver’s Westside, Kerrisdale is home to an Ivy League cache. Some of Vancouver’s highest-rated public schools are located here, including Magee Secondary School, Point Grey Secondary School, St. George’s School, York House School, Vancouver College and Little Flower Academy.
Considered the crème de la crème of neighbourhoods, Cressey Development Group found a home for its latest development, McKinnon, in Kerrisdale.
Cressey has been committed to this community for years. McKinnon marks the third project launched in Kerrisdale (the others are the Sterling and Arbutus Ridge communities.) With over 45 years of building experience, the renowned builder has established a stellar reputation for offering quality homes in desired locales.
“Many of our buyers are interested in the lifestyle that Kerrisdale offers,” says Jason Turcotte, vice-president of development for Cressey. “What also appeals to buyers, especially the downsizers and empty nesters – some of whom have lived here for decades – is that McKinnon offers a lock and go lifestyle.”
For James Iranzad, a long-time resident and owner-operator of neighbourhood pizzeria “Bufala,” the transition from an inviting little stretch of 41st Avenue to one of the most desirable neighbourhoods in the Lower Mainland has been a positive thing.
“It's been a pleasure to see the neighbourhood transition through generations, while keeping its charm,” he says. “New businesses like ours open and contribute to the community, while well-established ones continue to thrive as locals embrace them as previous generations have.”
A busy entrepreneur, Iranzad believes that what makes Kerrisdale such a vibrant and a great place to conduct business is its true sense of community. “Kerrisdale is an actual community and its residents are lovely and proud of their neighbourhood,” he says. “People are engaged with each other through their friendships, schools and community sports, amongst other ways, and they support their local businesses.”

That sense of belonging aligns with what Cressey strives for with each of their residential communities. McKinnon is a collection of 40 concrete homes, consisting of condos, townhomes and penthouse-level residences. For buyers who are looking for luxury living, McKinnon features old-world craftsmanship and signature finishes including wide-plank engineered hardwood floors, Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, and spa-inspired master ensuite bathrooms with free-standing soaker tubs surrounded by floor-to-ceiling marble tile. Understanding that the kitchen is the heart of a home, McKinnon showcases one of the largest, most functional CresseyKitchens™ ever built.
Meanwhile, Kerrisdale attracts buyers who enjoy a stroll along tree-lined streets, with a coffee in hand, in conversation with friends as they browse the independent boutiques, later picking up ingredients at one of the charming local merchants. For a night out, Kerrisdale offers myriad choices for dining, including West Coast fare and tastes from around the world. The neighbourhood also boasts amenities like convenient transit options and recreational opportunities for everyone from children to seniors, all within easy walking or driving distance.
Boutique shops and cafés, easy access to top-notch schools and community-driven events are just a few of the reasons Kerrisdale is such a sought-after area.
