Another Large Condo Development for Langford?

By
Real Estate Agent with Royal LePage Coast Capital Realty

Application sails through Planning and Zoning Committee this week.

An ambitious proposal by a local landowner to develop a 6.5 acre parcel consisting of three separate lots on Happy Valley Road in Langford includes plans for daycare, commercial space, and 171 units of condominium and row housing/townhouses.

Happy Valley Road Langford Condo Proposal

Development cost charges paid by the developers are to be substantial, contributing an estimated $3.6 million to city coffers. Projects and funds that would be paid for by this money are to include traffic lights at Happy Valley and Sooke Roads, crosswalks to Happy Valley School, traffic studies, fire protection, drainage improvements, city park fund, ALR acquisition fund, and the archaeological assessment fund.

The owners see the project breaking down as follows: 94 fee simple brownstone-style row/townhouses, 74 units in two four-storey condominiums, two residential units above 112 square metres of commercial space, and one single-family dwelling on a separate lot.

Nine units will have to be provided as affordable housing to satisfy Langford’s affordable housing policy. Also included on the proposal are various open spaces, including a children’s play play park, community garden, pocket park, rooftop gardens, and a plaza with a fountain. The plan also calls for open space to front Happy Valley Road.

What an exciting plan for Langford! The project still needs to go to public hearing and receive council approval, but there were no naysayers at the committee meeting this week.
