Removal of the debris is now complete and the family is turning its attention to the rebuilding process. Their desire is to have the store back in business as soon as possible but appreciate that planning, designing and building will take some time.
The Lee Family has engaged a builder and an architect to assist them through this process. The family is pleased to announce that they have selected a Langley builder, Marcon Construction, together with architect, Bryce Rositch.
“Marco Paolella of Marcon was responsible for building the IGA in the Thunderbird Village in Walnut Grove” said Charlie Lee, “and he was great to work with because of his attention to detail”. “I know that Marco’s firm with Bryce’s architectural experience can guide our family in making decisions about the redevelopment of the Fort Langley site.”
“Ensuring our plans respect the heritage character of the village is important to us” noted Robert Lee whose family, in 1975, purchased the Fort Supply Company, as the store was then called. His brother, Peter, said he has already received many suggestions from customers about things they would like to see included in the plans.
The Lee Family is open to ideas and suggestions from the community regarding the redevelopment of the site which has frontage on three main streets, Glover Road, Mavis Avenue and Church Street.
