LANGLEY – Families, seniors and individuals in the Township of Langley now have access to 98 new affordable rental homes with the opening of Jennie Gaglardi Place.

at 21201 56 Ave. is a five-storey, wood-framed building with a mix of studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom homes for households with low and moderate incomes. Additional features include a ground-floor amenity room, kitchen, washroom, storage room and laundry room, as well as exterior dining, seating and play areas. The building has underground and surface parking stalls.

The building is owned and operated by the Christian Life Assembly (CLA) Housing Society. Monthly rents range from $500 for a studio unit to $2,450 for a three-bedroom home. In April 2024, the first tenants are expected to move in.

“The Township of Langley is committed to providing housing solutions that meet the needs of our growing community. We are always happy to partner with the Province and other organizations to help deliver affordable housing options, and look forward to more opportunities to deliver for Langley residents,” said Eric Woodward, mayor of the Township of Langley.

The building name was unveiled in 2022, during a service and celebration held with Gaglardi’s family and the community, to commemorate her founding of the Christian Life Assembly Church in the Township of Langley more than 85 years ago. Gaglardi passed away in 1995.

“This project is a testament to the partnership between the Province of British Columbia, the Township of Langley and the not-for-profit CLA Housing Society. Through the 60-year agreement with BC Housing, CLA Housing Society is pleased to be a partner in providing much-needed quality, affordable housing in our community,” said Peter Fassbender, president, CLA Housing Society.
