LANGLEY, B.C. — B.C. is working with the City of Langley and the Christian Life Assembly to build 98 affordable homes.
The province will be contributing $10.7 million to the project while Christian Life Assembly is providing the land to build on, valued at more than $6 million, according to a press release.
Langley is contributing $3 million in fee waivers.
The new building will be called the Jennie Gaglardi Place, named after the founder of the Christian Life Assembly Church in Langley, who passed away in 1995. It will be located on 56th Avenue in Langley.
The project is part of B.C.’s 10-year housing plan. Since the plan began in 2017 the province has helped build or is currently building more than 530 homes in Langley alone. In total, 36,000 homes have either been finished or are underway across the province.
“The construction of this project helps ensure a supply of quality, affordable homes for people in Langley, so they aren’t forced to move away from their community,” said Andrew Mercier, MLA for Langley, in the release.
Construction is expected to be completed mid-2024.
