A Buy Buy Baby and a Bed Bath & Beyond are two of the stores opening soon in the revamped Langley City Square on the Bypass. The site’s lengthy renovation and reconstruction is almost finished.

Mall overhaul nearly complete on Langley Bypass

An upgrade means more than just renovations at a Langley shopping plaza.

Langley City Square is one of the community’s longtime shopping plazas, but it is almost unrecognizable from its appearance just a year ago.

The plaza, located in the 19800 block of the Langley Bypass, was host to furniture stores, the first Toy Traders location, and a number of craft and industrial supply stores.

A window manufacturer and some warehouses made up part of the site.

Now it’s moving to become a more traditional ‘high-quality’ big box facility, said Robert Eyers of Wesgroup.

“Firstly, I’d describe it as an upgrade and a repositioning,” Eyers said.

Some portions of the site were rebuilt from the ground up, while others had extensive renovations.

A host of new stores are about to move into the facility during the next few months, while some stalwarts like Jordan’s Furniture, Trail Appliances, and Nature’s Fare are staying put. Toy Traders has moved within complex.

In August or September, a Bed Bath & Beyond is to open, added Eyers.

There will be a Chipotle restaurant on the site in the near future, and a Starbucks just opened its doors, as well.

Work on the site is almost finished, with most of the renovation work complete.

Eyers said given the site’s location and exposure, they want “A-grade” retail stores.

Getting in and out of the site has long been a problem, but one that has been alleviated by a left in/left out turn bay off the bypass.

With that finished, there will be no more major changes to roads around the site, Eyers said.
