Woodsmere Holdings is nearing the start of construction on a 9.2-acre industrial park along Highway 14 between Glenshire Drive and Loledo Place as Langford’s western entranceway from Metchosin and Sooke goes into development overdrive.
The property, which requires significant terraforming to level its rocky topography, is being prepped by blasting crews for a six building construction effort fronting the 2900-block of Sooke Road/Highway 14 that will deliver nearly 200,000 square feet of light industrial space, mini storage, and live-work residences.
A project site plan issued by Woodsmere Holdings indicates that a three-storey mini storage facility will overlook the highway from the northwest corner of the land at the curve west of Slegg’s Building Materials, while a single floor but over-height industrial building will be situated immediately to its south. Further south along Loledo Place, two rows of bi-level live-work buildings will rise with nearly 30-units between them.
The eastern perimeter will include two additional single storey industrial buildings.

Headquartered in Saanich, Woodsmere Holdings operates purpose-built rental and commercial properties throughout British Columbia and Alberta, including a recently completed three-building community
along Jacklin Road opposite the Belmont Market Shopping Centre, and the newly-built Orono Place Apartments
along the 800-block of Orono Avenue off Jacklin Road.
Langford’s construction boom along the Highway 14 corridor, roughly between Glenshire Drive and Yorkshire Place on the Langford/Metchosin border, has already yielded several industrial properties made possible by the completion of West Shore Parkway
, a connector road that spans 4.5 kilometers between Highway 14 and the Trans Canada Highway.
At the parkway’s western terminus overlooking a Co-Op gas station, Galaxy Motors has recently opened a multi-acre recreation vehicle showroom and sales centre. Moving company AMJ Campbell has also completed a warehouse facility near the stretch, as has a funeral services company and a mini storage operator. Additional site work is taking place for future development sites further north along the parkway.
And at Yorkshire Place south of the highway at the western border of Langford, another terraforming effort is taking place in preparation for an industrial park which will include a new local headquarters for waste management firm GFL Environmental, which purchased Langford-based Alpine Group’s Evergreen Industries
waste management division in 2019.
Meanwhile, preparations are underway to connect West Shore Parkway’s western terminus at Highway 14 to Finney Road, which feeds into Luxton Road and Langford’s burgeoning Happy Valley district. The new roadway will improve road infrastructure in west Langford, and open the area to construction of new residential, commercial and industrial projects. C
