April 26 Council Notes: Three Apartment Projects

Langley City Council moved forward on three development items at the Monday public meeting.

Council gave final reading to a rezoning bylaw, discharging a land-use contract, and approving a development permit to allow the construction of a 6-storey. 213-unit rental apartment at the site of the former West Country Hotel. 20% of the units will have below-market rents set to 30% of the median income for Metro Vancouver as per Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation requirements for this project.

This project will also expand the Michaud Community Gardens and create a new lane with a sidewalk connecting 56th Avenue to Michaud Crescent.

You can read more about the development project in previous posts.

Council also gave third reading to amend the current Offical Community Plan and a rezoning bylaw to enable a 6-storey, 68-unit apartment at 5394, 5396, 5400, & 5402 207 Street. You can read more about this proposed development in a previous post.

Council also gave first and second reading to a bylaw, which, if given final reading, would enable the construction of a 5-storey, 62-unit apartment at the corner of 56th Avenue and 201 A Street. This proposed development is on the site of a former fire-damaged apartment building.
