Sales Specialist, Oakridge Vancouver
Westbank is a practice dedicated to the creation of beauty, in all forms and in the broadest definition. As we have grown, the category of a real estate developer has become too narrow to contain the essence of our practice. We are not motivated by the same things as a typical developer, our values are different: we invite collaborations with cultural pioneers, allowing their work to inform and influence our projects. We develop relationships with creatives so that we function as patrons of their art, rather than consumers of creative services. We embrace our eclectic nature, seeking out willing collaborators in art, culture, music, fashion, technology, sustainability, and architecture, while taking on projects at every scale, from the micro to the macro level.
We are and have always been, a practice seeking to make meaningful contributions and we see the creation of beauty as the means to this end. Through these endeavors, we have come to realize that too often, beauty is mistaken as a luxury, an option or an accessory, when we have never seen it as anything less than essential. Recognizing this, we have taken it upon ourselves to fight for it; to create it, to foster it and to celebrate it. In committing our efforts fully to this cause, we have evolved beyond the definition of a real estate development firm, to become a culture company.

A top-performing asset in a global city, QuadReal and Westbank share an ambition to transform this already successful centre (Oakridge Centre) into a cultural hub and a new municipal town centre for the City of Vancouver.
Oakridge Vancouver will comprise 2600 homes for 6000 residents, half a million sf of office for 3000 creative economy workers, over a million sf of retail, including a 50,000 sf ‘Kitchen’ within a 100,000 sf of curated culinary experiences, a 10-acre park, a +3000 capacity music venue, a world-class performing arts academy and dozens of informal performance spaces around the site for events, festivals, and celebrations – all powered by a neighbourhood district energy system.
Our journey to create what will become nothing less than the evolution of the conventional post-war typology, towards a modern, transit-oriented, district energy fueled, mixed-use piece of urbanity is beginning now. We invite you to join us.
The redevelopment of Oakridge is a joint venture between QuadReal and Westbank, two of Canada’s leading real estate enterprises.
