Multigraphics

The Living City's Sales Centre | Oakridge Centre

The largest development in Vancouver’s history is all set to begin construction by the end of 2019 for an estimated full completion in 2027. Located at the corner of 41st Avenue and Cambie Street, the 28.5 acre project, dubbed “The Living City” will redefine the meaning of modern city living. Oakridge Centre will be a crossroads for living, working, connecting, learning, creating and exploring – a cultural hub that will pay homage to experiences in all forms. The Living City will be comprised of:

  • 2600 homes for approximately 6000 residents
  • Workspace for 3000 creative professionals
  • More than 300 retail stores
  • Vancouver’s second largest library
  • A 10-acre park made up of six integrated smaller parks
  • Home to the world-renowned GOH Ballet Performing Arts Academy
  • Variety of Live Music Venues
  • One of Vancouver’s largest community centres

A project of such magnitude required a grand exhibit, as impressive as its subject. So once again, Multigraphics teamed up with Westbank to tackle the challenge. After the massively successful “Fight for Beauty” exhibit last year, expectations were higher than ever. The Unwritten Exhibition was designed to showcase and highlight the eight pillars of The Living City that will define the new Oakridge Centre. Our job was to bring this design to life.

The Living City - Stunningly Ambitious

Unwritten Exhibition

Our Work

Wellness

“What does it mean to be healthy? Wellness is a dynamic process of growth that leads to complete well-being – physically, mentally, and socially.” The Oakridge Living City will rebuild the concept of wellness from the ground up.

Our Work:

  • Reverse printed 1/2″ Plexi
  • Welded on-site to create a four-sided column

“When music transcends a melody – adding instruments, voices and layers of harmonies – it becomes three-dimensional. At the Oakridge Centre, music is a living thing that imbibes feeling and transforms space.”

Our Work:

  • Direct print on 0.25″ Acrylic with frosted backing
  • Printed and installed floor graphics with anti-slip laminate
  • Printed and installed wall mural with matte laminate
