Oakridge

With a major Oakridge Mall development on the horizon, young families and boomer downsizers are eyeing up the prospect of this up-and-coming ‘hood with its accessible SkyTrain station and sweeping highways heading both east and west. Despite urban development, Oakridge also offers greenspace in the form of the perfectly-groomed fairways on the 18-hole Langara Golf Course. Though the mall itself is arguably already the area’s anchor, a complete overhaul is in the works, with the end result including sky-high condos atop underground retail space and a brand new community centre for the area.
