Density in the City of Langley

I found the following map on the City of Langley's website called the Map of Multifamily Development Potential. The yellow represents areas that are currently single-family houses that could be built out to multifamily housing. The red is the downtown mixed-use area of the City of Langley. As the last remaining exclusively residential multifamily sites get built out, there will be pressure to develop the downtown area with exclusively residential building. Paddington Station, Serenade, and Langley Prairie School Site come to mind as new exclusively residential buildings in the mixed-use area of Langley. I know that many get concerned when retail units in new developments sit vacant, but there is normally a lag between resident development and commercial development.
