The company announced this month it has secured a location for its luxury, mixed-use Victoria development at Bayview Place. OASIS by Element in Langley has outlined further plans for its 17-acre development in the city’s Jericho neighbourhood.
The Victoria development is a $75-million, harbor-side residence to include 50 condos, 70 rentals and 35 licensed care units. The development is expected to complete by 2020.

Our strategy for growth will be to develop under our branded intergenerational model, in similarly central locations that are rich with neighbourhood amenities.”
Element presented its master plan for OASIS in Langley at a Public Information Meeting at the Langley Events Centre on Sept. 8. The project's rezoning process in well underway.
“OASIS by element™ presents an intergenerational perspective designed to meet the diverse cultural and social needs of Langley.
