Oakridge Development

leave a comment »

Walking through the mall this morning I passed this illustration of what the new mall development will look like. I then crossed the 41st Ave and Cambie Street intersection to take a photo from the diagonally opposite corner for comparison purposes. You will note that the rendering adopts a much higher viewpoint than street level.

Preparatory work for the development is already underway, hence the traffic control officer and the bollards in the street.

If you also follow me on flickr you will already have seen the following photos there. The exhibit is still open in the mall as part of the marketing effort for the condos.

This will not be like the usual mall food court. No franchisees allowed. Guest chefs from all over will be showing off their skills here.

This is a sample of the Green Walls that will be a feature of the new buildings.
