A boarded-up commercial property that has been sitting derelict for a number of years at the south-east corner of Fraser Highway and 264 Street is a proposed new commercial development site.

Aldergrove eyesore a step closer to being spruced up

Commercial development likely to go where derelict gas station and restaurant have sat empty for years

A prominent corner of Aldergrove may finally get a much needed facelift from the “eyesore” it is now.

On Monday, April 8, Langley Township council gave first and second reading to a bylaw allowing four commercial buildings to be built on the southeast corner of 264 Street and Fraser Highway.

The lot once held a popular Burger King and Husky gas station, but the buildings were vacated several years ago.

“I’m so happy to see something happening on this corner. It was unsightly and I was actually thinking of talking to the bylaw department about our unsightly policy,” said Councillor Kim Richter.

Councillors Charlie Fox and Bob Long called the corner lot an “eyesore.”

“It’s good they are going to clean up that corner. It’s been left in a derelict state for a while now,” said Fox.

But Long wasn’t too happy about commercial buildings filling the lot.

He expressed concern that putting commercial stores there will hurt an already hurting downtown Aldergrove.

“There is already a glut of commercial space in Aldergrove,”said Long.
