yes, they are adding a cactus club stand alone to the parking lot, phase 1 is the NE corner near the skytrain station and the sears portion of the mall.

That's not what's happening at Brentwood at all. I don't know Oakridge well enough to comment on that project, but Brentwood is certainly building open air market style retail buildings with condo towers on top. They're keeping the existing mall for now, but it's going away in the future as well.

Langley home of the Fraser Valley’s first ever residential Mass Timber development
MARCH 19, 2019 BY PETER MEISZNER



Langley is set to become the home of the Fraser Valley’s first ever residential mass timber development.

Legacy on Park Avenue is the first six storey mid-rise project in the Fraser Valley that uses mass timber in the form of Cross Laminated Timber (CLT). The Canadian Wood Council has confirmed this is also the very first application in Canada for a CLT Firewall.

The project at 204 St. and Park Avenue includes 69 two and three-bedroom condominiums. Construction is underway with completion slated for July 2020.

Built by MDM Construction, the project showcases a unique architectural design made possible by the CLT panels used in its construction. The project’s curved balconies were a key element of the design that could only be brought to fruition with the use of CLT panels.
