Another high-end automobile dealer has set its sights on Langley City.

But Acura of Langley won’t be joining other recent additions to the City’s collection of luxury brands, which have been setting up shop at the corner of Glover Road and the Langley Bypass.

During a recent presentation to City Council, John Scott and Mark Koropecky, of CEI Architecture described plans for a new 25,000 square foot glass and metal structure, which Acura plans to build at 20257 Langley Bypass.

The lot is a long, narrow strip of land that fronts onto the Langley Bypass and backs onto 62 Avenue, which will allow traffic to enter and exit at both ends.

Currently, the property is occupied by an RV rental business, with the building situated on the eastern edge of the lot, butting up against a furniture store, separated by only a narrow gap.

The proposal calls for the existing building to be demolished and the dealership — a one storey structure with a small, second storey mezzanine — to be constructed near the front of the property, with ample parking for both inventory and the public at the rear of the lot.

The design calls for a “clean, corporate, sophisticated appearance” — “an improvement over what is there,” said Koropecky.

No one from the community spoke about the proposed development at the public hearing. Later, council gave third reading to the land use discharge bylaw.
