The Heartbeat of Langley
Langley City is directly east of Cloverdale and the City of Surrey, and is surrounded on the north, east, and south side by the Township of Langley.
It’s a great spot for casual food and shopping, being very accessible with plenty of community events throughout the year.
Almost everything in Langley City will be within walking distance of your new Langley home, townhome, or condo and there are six defined neighbourhoods for you to explore: Nicomekl, Douglas, Simonds, Blacklock, Alice Brown, and Uplands.
Langley City At A Glance
Everything you want at your fingertips
Langley City is the perfect blend of urban life and the suburbs, with everything being walkable, lots of little shops, and yet everything you need for daily life.
Have a craving for sushi? Thai? Italian? There are so many options available in the downtown area of Langley City, all within walking distance of each other. Lately there’s been a few ramen and vegan restaurants that have opened up, and they’re amazing!
You can easily spend an entire day walking between shops, eating at cool independent restaurants, or your tried and true, Earls, Cactus Club, and Browns.
Langley City’s real estate market is a nice mixture of condos, townhouses, and single-family homes.
Mainly built between the 1960s and 1990s, the lot sizes are generally smaller and there are fewer basement suites throughout. The properties are generally serviced with water, hydro, and sewer, and most have gas.
You can expect plenty of street parking in this planned and well-established community.
Walking distance to everything, including transportation, schools, shopping, and restaurants.
Langley City is for the type of person that enjoys the social atmosphere.
If you’re the type of person that enjoys chatting with someone new at the neighbourhood eatery, waving to your neighbours, or greeting your postman on a first name basis, this is the suburban city life you’ve been looking for.
There are so many places to try new food and drinks that you’ll have a tough time choosing where to go. Are you a Starbucks person or a Tim Hortons? Langley has you covered (they’re on every corner).
Willowbrook Mall also has absolutely everything you could need, and they’re set for a giant expansion in the very near future.

What You'll Love
You’ll love that everything you could need is a stone’s throw away. You can shop at Willowbrook Mall if it’s dark and stormy outside, or explore the outdoor shops at Langley City in the summertime, and finish off with a margarita on the sunny patio at Viva Mexico.
You’re in the central hub that feeds the entire city and Township, but still feels small enough that you’ll bump into friends and neighbours wherever you go.
It’s city life for sure, but with a great community vibe.
What You Might Not Like
With city life comes a few city issues. Crime is a little higher in some areas, as the support programs for those struggling tend to be based out of the city.
200th street traffic around rush hour can be a bit of a nightmare, especially when the train comes through. It’s my excuse every time I show up late for an appointment (which is super rare).
