As such, convenient public transportation and driving routes are available, connecting residents to the rest of the city. Downtown Vancouver is a short skytrain ride away, as is UBC. The airport, and Richmond are also easily accessible by car or by skytrain along the Canada Line.

Housing

Oakridge is one of Vancouver’s younger neighbourhoods and as such, many single family dwellings were built in the bungalow, rancher, or split-level styles. Higher density housing, including high-rise condominiums, have been built along the main arterial routes, closer to the transportation hubs at West 41st and Cambie Street. In 2014, The City of Vancouver approved a rezoning of the area around Oakridge mall which includes the possible construction of 14 high rise towers, between 9 and 44 stories tall which will drastically increase housing availability.
