The first residential high rises in the Township of Langley broke ground this morning, June 15, in the billion-dollar, 74-acre Latimer Heights master-planned community by Vesta Properties.
The two towers will be 26 and 34 storeys tall, with 500 condos units between the two buildings and the adjacent 16 townhouses.
The entire complex is nearly completely pre-sold, according to Vesta marketing manager Christine Turner.
“We only have a few of the city townhomes left at the base of the towers and we will be releasing the penthouses for sale in July,” she said in an email.
Latimer Heights, at 20049 82nd Avenue, also includes a retail village with 36,000 square feet of commercial space, where some shops have already opened. The site also includes 17 acres of green space.
The towers at Latimer Heights are Langley’s first concrete residential high rises, with studio, one, two, and three-bedroom condo units ranging from 354 to 1,212 square feet, penthouse condos and three-bedroom city townhomes.
Langley-based Vesta has applied to the Township for an additional 45-storey tower at Latimer Heights, to replace planned low-rise residential buildings, but it has yet to be approved.
“We have worked extremely hard over the past several years to get to this moment,” said Kent Sillars, president Vesta Properties in an earlier statement to Western Investor. “Latimer Heights is unlike any other community in the Township of Langley and it has truly been a rewarding experience to contribute to such an innovative concept that will provide new housing opportunities in the heart of our region.”
