It is designed to be a community hub with a focus on arts and culture, food and ­incubator businesses looking to test products and services.

Applications are open for the following:

• Six artist studios are available. Studio space can be rented individually, or multiple artists can share a single studio. The studios will provide an opportunity for artists to showcase their abilities while also offering their goods for sale.

• Six business incubator retail locations are available for rent. These aim to create an opportunity for businesses to test their business model or expand an existing ­business to Langford before ­committing to a ­brick-and-mortar ­location. ­Businesses will need to ­demonstrate in their ­application how they will contribute to the interactive and consumer ­experience at ­Langford Station.

• Six food truck stalls are available for rent daily. Interested food-truck owners must apply and be approved by the City of ­Langford prior to receiving ­permission to book dates.

Those interested in applying should visit langford.ca/TheLangfordStation. For more information, contact ­ stationave@langford.ca.
