Crews remove the decorative stonework from the exterior of the former Coza restaurant on 200 Street. The business will re-open as Browns Social House.

Browns Social House coming to Langley City

Site of former Coza restaurant will be second Langley location

A new dining destination will soon be popping up on the Langley landscape — one that offers a unique alfresco experience to patrons.

On Oct. 21, Langley City Council gave Gustavson Wylie Architect Inc. the green light to develop a Browns Social House Restaurant on the corner of 200 Street and 62 Avenue.

The existing building was previously occupied by Coza Restaurant and has since been divided into two new tenant spaces — the western portion of the building is proposed to be the new location of the restaurant, occupying 6,140 square feet.

Based in Vancouver, Browns Restaurant Group was founded in 2003 by entrepreneur and innovator Scott Morrison.

“This will be Mr. Scott Morrison’s corporate location and his training and flagship facility, which is what we’re very excited about — I know Browns is excited about coming into Langley with that presence,” said Ron Baron, an architect with GWA ,of the casual dining restaurant/pub crossover concept, which  opened its first franchise in North Vancouver back in 2004.

Gustavson Wylie Architect Inc. requested variances to the exterior side and rear back of the building that includes a 1,142 square-foot patio addition.

“The existing patio is very introverted in that it had a large cedar hedge running along 200 Street  – this proposal is to open that up to make it more visually apparent and accessible to express the energy of the restaurant,” said Baron of the four-season room that shields patrons from the elements and traffic noise.

Aside from the outdoor space, the variance also permits for a 490 square foot garbage/recycling addition as well as an alteration to the sidewalks to make the restaurant “more accessible” to patrons.

Although the intention is for all vehicular and pedestrian access to remain as exists, Baron noted a new pedestrian access point is proposed off 200 Street as an additional entry to the proposed Browns Social House.

A new wheelchair letdown is also being provided from the parking lot at the building frontage closer to the existing handicap parking stall.

In keeping with the Browns Social House branding, the new building will also have updated exterior finishes such as: architectural decorative block, new stone cladding, new patio glazing, new storefront windows, new sliding window system, decorative canopy and ornate lighting fixtures.

The new building will be Langley’s second location – a Browns Social House is also situated in Walnut Grove at 20159 88 Ave. For more information about Browns Social House, visit www.brownsrestaurantgroup.com.
