Seniors mobile home park in Langford could be site of new mixed-use development

Developer plans to meet and discuss options for each homeowner individually

A mobile home park in Langford could be the site of a new mixed-use redevelopment with construction scheduled to begin in 2021.

Known for being a community of residents aged 55 and up, Tri-Way Seniors Manufactured Mobile Home Park covers 12 acres near the Leigh Road interchange. The entire property spans nearly 50 acres.

According to local developer Jim Hartshorne, an executive with the Triway Residents Association approached him in September 2019, after residents raised concerns of what a sale would mean for their homes.

A new company, Tri-Way Developments Ltd., was created by Hartshorne to purchase the lands in order to maintain a portion of the redeveloped property as a manufactured mobile home park.

A mixed-use rezoning application has been submitted to the City of Langford by the company, with the intention of finalizing plans for the site by this fall.

“We will never forget that these are peoples’ homes and providing quality of life, dignity, and certainty will be at the centre of this project,” said Hartshorne in a statement. “Tri-Way Developments and its consulting team are determined to provide residents with the support they need to make informed decisions.”

Peter Kedge, a representative of the Triway Residents Association, added he hopes this partnership will be a model for future manufactured home park developments.

Residents at Tri-Way Park will be able to learn more about the project at a series of upcoming meetings. The first will be an internal meeting for residents followed by a second meeting at which Tri-Way Developments will introduce their team and present their plans for the site.

Resident Margaret MacDonald said Thursday that she plans to attend the meetings as she’s interested in hearing more about the project.

“I’d much rather this [area] stay the way it is,” MacDonald noted. “I’ve lived here for over 20 years and I’m not sure what will happen to this place. I’ll be at the meeting, that’s for sure.”

Following the meetings, Tri-Way Developments representatives plan to meet with residents individually and discuss options for each homeowner.

If all goes according to plan, construction is scheduled to begin in 2021.
