The evolution of Oakridge, Canada’s largest redevelopment endeavour, is getting closer to completion as Oakridge Park announces some of the leading global brands, including flagship and boutique stores, scheduled to open in Spring 2025.
Oakridge Park Announces Flagships and Global Brands
Redefining the city’s retail landscape, the inaugural brands that will be part of this world-class destination are Louis Vuitton, Prada, Brunello Cucinelli, Moncler, Versace and Max Mara. Upon completion, Oakridge Park will offer a curated selection of 100+ premium global brands across apparel, beauty, jewelry, watches, home décor, as well as lifestyle and wellness, alongside exceptional culinary experiences.
The first stand-alone luxury fashion boutiques in Vancouver to be announced at Oakridge Park include Maison Margiela, Miu Miu, Christian Louboutin and Alexander Wang, with more retail announcements to follow in 2024. These vanguards of style will anchor the top-tier retail experience totaling 650,000 square feet.
A much-anticipated Time Out Market, the second for Canada, will create a new culinary destination, offering some of the best cuisine from across the globe. The design of the food and cultural market, known for its unique blend of culinary excellence and cultural experiences, will be inspired by the great traditional food halls of Europe and the more contemporary ones in Asia.
Oakridge Park’s first phase is anticipated to open in Spring 2025, welcoming thousands of residents to their new home in four residential towers. Envisioned as a cultural destination and gathering place, the development will have a nine-acre park, the largest library on Vancouver’s West Side, multiple indoor and outdoor performance venues, a flagship academy for the world-renowned Goh Ballet and more.
Oakridge Park began in 2017, transforming what was formerly known as Oakridge Centre into a new five-million-square-foot town centre. Open for 70 years, the venue, was celebrated as Vancouver’s “most stylish shopping destination” and consistently ranked among the top two shopping centres, in terms of sales per square foot, in Canada.
Lunar New Year Celebration
In addition to the retail announcement, Oakridge Park is inviting the community to celebrate the Year of the Dragon at the Oakridge Park Lunar New Year Celebration at the Fairmont Pacific Rim. Now in its sixth year, the festivities are happening until February 25, 2024 with daily programming from 11:00am to 6:00pm. This will include family-focused activities such as children’s ballet classes in collaboration with the award-winning Goh Ballet Academy, Lunar New Year family portraits, floral arrangement workshops, live musical performances and more.
