Fraser Valley Expansion Part of MLA Canada’s Growth

New Langley Office Opens Fall 2018

Vancouver, CANADA


Vancouver, Nov. 15, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MLA Canada is opening its third office and expanding to the Fraser Valley, bringing its premium service to the region which is experiencing tremendous growth and continues attracting Metro Vancouver’s developers. The city’s premier real estate marketing company will incorporate leasable retail space as part of their office to host a developer’s project presentation centre.

“MLA Canada’s business strategy is to bring our marketing and sales experience in urban developments to clients with projects in the Fraser Valley,” said Cameron McNeill, Executive Director and Partner of MLA Canada. “The company has half a dozen projects and counting in the region, and we are fortunate to have a new office in Langley after years of planning.”

The Langley location at B210-20689 Willoughby Town Centre Drive, means MLA Canada is better positioned to service its clients with proximity to projects and to provide hyperlocal insights and strategies to help them shape multi-family communities. Although the organization has managed projects in the Fraser Valley stemming back from over a decade, the new office will cement their commitment to the area, provide added convenience to their clients and embrace the neighbourhood in a more meaningful way. The company’s current projects include the townhomes at Luxia at Yorkson in Langley, the condominiums at Court in Abbotsford, and a collection of three high rises at White Rock’s Foster Martin.

The region is poised for additional growth as the multi-family housing market continues to thrive year-over-year with a high volume of redevelopment applications and construction activity, as well as plans for transit and industrial expansion. Demand is strong for new homes in the Fraser Valley with more favourable price levels and square footage than Greater Vancouver units. In the coming six months developers with high rise projects are expected to add over 2,500 units to the Fraser Valley housing market. 

Brittany Reimer Appointed to Lead Fraser Valley Operations 

MLA Canada Fraser Valley will operate with Brittany Reimer appointed as the Managing Director working alongside the executive team for day-to-day operations. Previously, Reimer held a senior leadership role with MLA Canada, and consulted with the city’s leading developers. She brings expertise in building high impact, innovative marketing and sales programs for residential developments. Her background as a realtor and as a longtime resident in the Fraser Valley will add exceptional value and real estate market insights for clients and home buyers.

New Design Concept Creates a Dual-Purpose Office

The dual-purpose office concept is designed for both corporate and client use. Finding a prime location to house a presentation centre with product displays, meeting rooms and ample parking for visitors is an ongoing challenge for developers with multi-family projects in the Fraser Valley. Developers face long delays to acquire city permits and pay a premium on short-term leases in the region. MLA Canada explored the possibilities for its clients’ Fraser Valley projects, and the simple answer was to dedicate one quarter of the office for developers to retro-fit as their pre-sale presentation centre. The turn-key solution is an efficient option and provides cost savings of hundreds of thousands of dollars for a PC build out. The retail space at Willoughby Town Centre offers ample parking for the public and it is designed for a highly customized home buyer experience with room vignettes and interactive display boards to view floorplans and the photo gallery.
