Condo project goes to Langley public

A proposed condo and townhouse complex in Willoughby will get public input later this month.

Langley Township council passed first and second reading of a rezoning to allow A Poet’s Wynd Developments to build two six-storey and two five-storey condos, with at least 286 apartments, plus 138 townhouse units. If approved, the project will be built on the southeast corner of 208th Street and 80th Avenue.

If approved, it will join several other five- and six-storey condo developments to the northwest.

“It seems to be consistent with what’s happening in Willoughby,” said Mayor Jack Froese.

Although a rezoning is needed to get six storey buildings, the neighbourhood plan allows up to 12, noted Froese.

Councillor Kim Richter was opposed, citing density and lack of parking, issues that have come up repeatedly in Willoughby.

“I don’t even think we should send it to public hearing,” Richter said. 

A public hearing is currently scheduled for Monday, July 20, at 7 p.m. in the Township Civic Facility.
