The Journey of Gryphon House

March 24, 2022

We are so excited to announce that site preparation for Gryphon House has begun! The journey towards creating an elite lifestyle for future homeowners of this prestigious property is finally taking shape with this significant milestone and construction progress.

Inspired by some of the finest examples of contemporary traditionalism in London, The Gryphon House project is a story that begins with art. Located in the central neighborhood of Kerrisdale, it creates a sense of timeless grandeur and brings modern day heritage to the historic neighborhood.

Kerrisdale is known for its rich history. The Stanley Ernest Peters (S.E.P) Building dates to its beginnings in the 1930’s where it has become home to many beloved treasures. One of those treasures being George’s Pizza who opened their doors in 1977 and has become a family favorite in the community for decades. Gryphon House will restore and integrate The Stanley Ernest Peters (S.E.P) Building into a classic contemporary architectural style and pay tribute to the evolution and transformation of the new Kerrisdale.

Thank you to our construction team, Elephon Builders, for ensuring that we preserve the Stanley Ernest Peters (SEP) Block’s structural integrity.
