Willoughby Town Centre welcoming Kensington to the neighbourhood

Willoughby Town Centre will be a gathering place in Langley.



Willoughby Town Centre is rapidly becoming a vibrant gathering place as Langley’s first truly walkable neighbourhood. Now it’s adding its first residential component with Kensington, a 65-unit apartment building. The community, developed by Qualico in partnership with Chow & Li, will provide shopping, dining and high-quality living, all in one spot.

“We tried to make sure that there’s a floorplan for everyone,” says Diane Zarola, Sales and Marketing Manager for Qualico.

Willoughby Town Centre will soon be an integral part of Langley. Thus far, confirmed tenants include Shoppers Drug Mart, Sassy Nail Salon, RBC, G&F Financial, Noma Sushi Restaurant, Rendevous Liquor Store and Loblaw’s: Your Independent Grocer, the first in the neighbourhood. There will also be an entire building devoted mainly to medical and dental offices.

“We are so thrilled to have all these services,” Zarola says. “It’s going to be a very socially active community.” Qualico asked Facebook users what they’d like to see at Willoughby Town Centre. Suggestions included a yoga studio, coffee shops, a pub, and small clothing boutiques.

Kensington itself will include ground-level commercial space, three stories of condominium homes, ranging from 660 to 1,360 square feet and 18 different one- and two-bedroom floorplans.

“People are absolutely in love with our finishings,” says Zarola. “These are very well-thought-out plans.”

Among the amazing finishes at Kensington are kitchens filled with maple shaker-style cabinetry, granite or quartz countertops complemented by a ceramic tile backsplash and marble mosaic accent tile, and stainless-steel appliances. Zarola also notes that Qualico has included convenient full-wall pantries in some homes.

“Wherever we could fit them, they’re there!” she says.

The bathrooms are equally elegant, most with a spacious five-foot shower with rain shower head, rectangular undermount sink and floating vanity in the ensuite. The main bathrooms feature their own undermount sink, quartz countertops and deep soaker tub with textured ceramic tile.

The nine-foot ceilings in your new home lend an incredible sense of space and airiness, while the generous patios (truly huge on the second floor) are made for entertaining. Chic laminate flooring blends seamlessly into the plush carpeting in the bedrooms. You’ll also appreciate the contemporary pot lighting throughout your home, which perfectly illuminates your tasks and gives a cleaner look to the ceiling.

Every home also includes a den or tech nook perfect for a home office or as extra space for all of your gadgets.

“People just adore this space,” Zarola says. “It’s … very workable.”

You’ll also find a front-load washer and dryer included as well.

The community is by far the biggest draw for buyers.

“People are going to love the convenience,” Zarola says. “There’s nothing I love more than being able to park my car and leave it.”

This will be incredibly easy for residents at Kensington. Indeed, you need do nothing more than look out your window in order to see what’s going on in the neighbourhood. Eventually Willoughby Town Centre will include more than 500 homes and over 145,000 square feet of retail and office space.

At Kensington itself, you’ll find an amenity room with an electric fireplace, full kitchen, accessible washroom and balcony, and a fully furnished guest suite that residents can use for out-of-town guests.

Venturing off the property, you’ll find shopping, restaurants, leisure and recreation activities, transit and schools all within walking distance.

Homes at Kensington start at $199,900. For more information, visit www.liveatkensington.ca, call 604-427-3311 or visit the presentation centre at 20678 Willoughby Town Centre Drive, open every day between noon and 5 p.m.
