A small construction crew works on a new McDonald’s restaurant being built in the Rona parking lot at the corner of Langford Parkway and Phipps Road.

Mysterious build in Langford to have golden finish

Construction project on Rona parking lot to be West Shore's next McDonald's Restaurant

Rumours are flying about the work going on at the corner of Langford Parkway and Phipps Road.

If you haven’t been by the area lately, it’s hard to miss the bright blue fence that surrounds a section carved out of the parking lot of Rona’s Langford location.

Inside the fence, visually, there isn’t much to inspire the debate. Piles of lumber and chunks of old asphalt lay scattered around the perimeter of a freshly poured concrete slab. No visible signage stakes a claim to what is being built.

But the familiar golden arches that will soon rise will be recognizable without any accompanying signage.

Putting an end to the speculation, Langford director of planning Matthew Baldwin confirmed that a McDonald’s Restaurant, with drive-thru, was in the works.

“It’ll take a little longer to construct than making a Big Mac,” he said, asked to venture a guess as to its completion time. He figured, however, the building would be completed before Christmas.

The City also confirmed there were no plans to close the existing McDonald’s location across the street in Walmart, Baldwin said.

This will be the fourth McDonald’s location on the West Shore.
