There looks to be a pretty good base of retail to build around. With some more density, you would get a better mix of retail tenants and create a decent, urbanized town centre.
I like how the Shaughnessy area in Port Coquitlam is shaping up, maybe Langley should look there for an example on how to redevelop.
One thing I didn't really notice before, but is very apparent in the rendering, is the fact it is surrounded by parking lot. How did the city approve this?
