Two million square foot mixed-use development planned near Langford Costco
MIKE KOZAKOWSKI, CITIFIED.CA

Blasting and tree falling are well underway along the Trans Canada Highway south of the Langford Costco in preparation for a two million square foot mixed-use commercial and residential development.

The concept for the site includes between 30 and 35 three storey townhomes along the northern edge of the property south of Cavalcade Terrace. The remainder will consist of an array of single use or mixed-use low-rise and mid-rise residential and commercial buildings between 2658-2670 Secretariat Way and 899 McCallum Road.

The exact heights and densities are yet to be determined pending the results of a traffic study currently underway, although Langford has given a preliminary nod to structures of at least six storeys. Once the traffic study is completed a formal development permit application by developer McCallum Developments will proceed outlining proposed structures and layouts.

A component of the project will connect the two disjointed portions of McCallum Road, enabling residents to bypass the Trans Canada Highway when traveling between the Leigh Road interchange and areas north of the Millstream Road overpass.

According to Langford’s planning documents the nature of the development will be “downtown-like, pedestrian-oriented,” signaling a major departure from the big-box shopping centres and single-family subdivisions normally seen north of the Trans Canada Highway.

Construction of the first phase could begin by late 2015 or early 2016. C
