Oakridge

Oakridge which is situated between 41st Ave. (North) & 57th Ave. (South) and between Granville St. (West) & Main St. (East), was one of Vancouver's last communities to be developed. It was a heavily forested area until the late 1950's, when Oakridge Mall was built, Vancouver's first shopping centre. The building of the Oakridge Mall was the focal point to the residential boom in the area. Oakridge is known for being a mature neighborhood, with mainly single family bungalow style houses and old age facilities. As well Oakridge has a large percentage of Vancouver's Jewish population and houses the Jewish Community Centre.

As Oakridge is a relatively new community, its features are constantly evolving. The new Canada Line, a rapid transit system bridging Vancouver with its southern communities and suburbs, is being built right through the middle of Oakridge. City planners are hoping that the construction of the Canada Line will bring increased commercial, retail, and office uses to the area, as well as lessen the auto traffic in the area. Langara College, located along 49th Ave. which currently enrolls 23,000 students, is also evolving. New construction on the school is ongoing and they hope to raise the student population by 50%, another good reason for the Canada line to be built.
