    Willoughby Heights

    The Heartbeat of Willoughby

    Willoughby Heights is now the most densely populated area of Langley Township. It sits on the south side of Highway 1 and east of 200th Street. It has seen a massive influx of new construction over the last 10 years with no signs of slowing down. It is one of the most sought after areas in Langley and our clients love living here.

    Costco! Yes, it is very close by but good luck finding parking on a weekend! All the big box stores are located at the bottom of the hill at 200th Street, including Walmart, Best Buy, Home Depot, and Willowbrook Mall.

    Willoughby also borders downtown Langley City, so there is quick access to all of the small independent businesses, restaurants, and shops.

    Willoughby Heights
    Housing Market

    Willoughby Heights is known for its charming new detached homes, condos, and townhouses.

    Mostly built within the last 15 years, this is a newly established neighbourhood that is growing faster than construction can keep up. For detached homes, the houses are typically large with smaller lots, and the condos and townhouses have an upper-scale feel to them. With many strata lots, the neighbourhoods tend to be very well kept.

    Because of the dense population, traffic and parking can be a little more difficult during peak times.

    Neighbourhood Appeal

    Walking distance to everything, including transportation, schools, shopping, and restaurants.

    Willoughby Heights is attracting young professionals and growing families.

    If you are friendly and outgoing and would enjoy chatting with your neighbours you’ll love living in Willoughby. The community is very tight-knit. Be prepared for hundreds of kids to knock on your door for Halloween candy. Those little rascals will cut across driveways and hit over 100 houses in a night.
