We get it. You don’t want to live in some boring condo. What’s fun about that? Nothing. Zip. Zilch. (Fact is, most of them aren’t that great.) That’s why we created Mercer. We build homes that are beautifully designed, with quality construction that lasts, and kitchens that make you say “wow” when you walk in the door. Places that are actually about you, not what someone else thinks you should be. Mercer’s in the perfect spot, too. Right where Commercial Drive south curves to become Victoria Drive, Mercer is literally steps from transit, parks and culture. Because we know you’ve got places to go. Stuff to do. You’ve got a life. Plus there are only 48 boutique residences, so you’re not living in some massive complex full of anonymous souls. Mercer will offer One Bedroom and One Bedroom + Den homes from the mid $300,000s, and Two bedroom + Den homes starting from the mid $400,000s. Best of all, Mercer will be move-in ready as early as spring 2015.

Mercer by Cressey is an unprecedented opportunity for you to own one of just 48 brick-clad boutique homes in the celebrated Cedar Cottage neighbourhood of Vancouver. The renowned and award-winning Cressey Development Group designs and builds homes that are modern, beautiful, and incredibly efficient. Located just south of vibrant Commercial Drive, where Victoria Diversion meets Commercial Street, Mercer offers One Bedrooms and One Bedroom + Dens priced from the mid $300s and Two Bedrooms priced from the mid $400s.

Previews and Sales begin early December (Official Grand Opening next year).


Green space is important. That’s why we created a special place we call the Secret Garden – it’s a retreat just for you. When you need time to chill. Do some early morning yoga before heading to Trout Lake for a run. Sit outside on a sunny day with a cold beer. Have friends over for an impromptu salmon barbecue. Just be. It’s a pretty sweet spot – a private inner courtyard professionally landscaped with native, evergreen plants. It’s like having your own private sanctuary in the heart of Vancouver.

Who wants to be cooped up on a balcony, grilling weenies on a battered hibachi? The Secret Garden has communal barbecue facilities, complete with a sink and dining area, with lots of space for grilling, socializing and imbibing like there’s no tomorrow. Plus there’s even a bocce ball court. So fire up the grill and throw on a couple of T-bones. Or veggie burgers. Or weenies. It’s your grill – cook whatever you want.

Mercer’s unique, building architecture, which fronts onto two intersecting streets, allows for a private, outdoor space cradled between the buildings. The Secret Garden is a lushly landscaped residents’-only courtyard featuring an outdoor kitchen, covered open-air dining room, and custom bocce ball court.

Outdoor hallways overlooking the Secret Garden and landscaping on multiple levels adds natural beauty to everyday living. Unique orientation of the homes off the outdoor hallways allows light and cooling cross-breezes to enter both sides of the home.

Mercer’s stunning homes feature the famous CresseyKitchen™, with quartz composite countertops and backsplash, modern wood-grained laminate cabinetry and stainless steel appliances by KitchenAid.

A seamless, walk-thru design ensures optimal circulation within an open-concept floorplan and maximizes storage space. The kitchen is as stylish as it is functional, thanks to the signature Chef’s Wall, featuring a stainless steel French-door fridge, wall oven and microwave. A dedicated, built-in desk with under-cabinet lighting is the perfect place to park everyday things like keys, phones, bags and errand lists.

Plus, enjoy engineered hardwood flooring throughout all living areas, with tiled bathrooms with luxurious in-floor heating by Nu-heat. Each home comes with one parking stall and in-suite storage.

ou know Commercial Drive. It’s the kind of neighbourhood where interesting things happen. Shops are unique, not generic. Restaurants are owned and operated by locals. Walk down the street for one of the city’s best espressos, then watch soccer with a bunch of Italians. Go to a music store where the owners can tell you who the bass player was on Eric Dolphy’s “Out to Lunch.” And if you’re whipping up an impromptu dinner for friends, The Drive’s the best place for primo groceries.

When you’re living at Mercer, transit couldn’t be easier. The bus is literally 20 seconds away. It’s a 10-minute walk to the Skytrain station, and a 15-minute drive to downtown. Couldn’t be simpler. And if you’re hankering for a craft beer, head down to Commercial and William. What more could you possibly want?

After 40 years in the business, Cressey has evolved into a company that does more than construct buildings. We create homes – the kind of desirable places that people are proud to call their own.

Every Cressey project adheres to a set of specific and far-reaching standards. Homes must be well-located and near things that enrich your living experience – everything from good schools to convenient transit options. Interiors must be beautiful, flexible and able to withstand the rigors of day-to-day living.

The CresseyKitchen™ is a prime example of this forward thinking design ethic, where our team continuously is rethinking the most important room in the house to bring even more utility and ease into people’s lives. Add that to the other Cressey features – easy-to-furnish floorplans, elegant lobbies, useful extras – and it’s easy to see why people look for us by name.

No two Cressey buildings will ever be the same, but the philosophy that guides them always is. It’s a mantra that first reminds us to choose a worthy site and to play to that neighbourhood’s natural strengths. Then it keeps us flexible and imaginative as our entire team searches for meaningful ways to improve the way you’ll live there – room by room, detail by detail, year after year.
