Every great designer would relish in the chance to build his or her grand vision—a project to end all projects, something that will leave a legacy and last well into the future. This is Legacy on Park Avenue.
The project was envisioned, designed and built by Erich Jaeger, a German builder-developer with more than 47 years’ experience and a lifetime of travel as his influence.
“The building is a passion project,” says Ben Gauer, Director of Marketing and Sales for Royal LePage Ben Gauer and Associates. “The developer wanted to create one last project that spared no expense, was truly unique, and that would still be there 200 years from now. It is a legacy for himself and for the city of Langley.”
Legacy on Park Avenue is a six-storey boutique building that comprises a collection of 69 two- and three-bedroom + den condominiums, ranging from 1,179 to 1,681 square feet. It is designed for people who adore luxury, appreciate quality, and want room to live fully in their spaces.
“The developer could have built twice as many units of a smaller size or created a larger footprint for the property,” Gauer says. “But he wanted to give residents ample and flexible indoor space, and he wanted lavish landscaping on the property.”
The building’s unmistakable curved, illuminated exterior gently flows across the skyline, enveloping scenic balconies. The two-story glass encased lobby is punctuated by a welcoming fireplace, and a green wall art installation mimics a brook trickling through the forest, a nod to British Columbia’s incredible wilderness.
Inside the residences, seven-foot and extra-wide solid core doors welcome residents home. Wide-plank engineered white oak flooring sprawls throughout the space, and floor-to-ceiling German engineered windows allow for abundant natural light.
Jaeger insists that people will seldom understand the true value of their homes because it is what is behind the walls that really counts. Behind Legacy’s walls is a solid cross-laminated timber (CLT) structure that surpasses the BC Building Code, and Canada’s first CLT firewall. Each unit features an engineered private heating and cooling system, and every wall is insulated and covered in 5/8-inch Type X fireguard drywall.
Even when people said Jaeger’s plan was cost-prohibitive, he forged ahead with his eye on the future. “Profit was not the motivator for creating this project,” Gauer says. “The motivator was fulfilling a dream.”
“In 100 or 200 years from now, I want people to say, ‘This guy did a great job!” Jaeger says. “Legacy will still be standing solid and look like it was built yesterday.”
