New Developments

West Oak offers urban sophistication in one of Vancouver’s most coveted neighbourhood – Oakridge

By Michelle Hopkins Jun 8, 2021

After looking at several townhome projects on Vancouver’s Westside, Jane Wang was excited to hear that Shokai Canada, a leader in luxury projects around the globe, was launching a new townhome development.

“Shokai is a very famous developer in China, known for beautiful, user-friendly homes, high end quality materials and a track record for excellence in everything they build,” says Wang, a mother of two young children living in Metrotown. “I love the patios, the high-end appliances, the kitchen island, and how functional and sophisticated the homes are.”

Another reason Wang wanted to move to this prestigious Vancouver postal code was for the exceptional schools.   

“This neighbourhood has a much more superior elementary school than where we live now,” says Wang, who bought a 1,400 square foot townhome in Phase 1.  

It is here, nestled in one of the city’s most historic neighbourhoods that Shokai is launching Phase 2 of West Oak - an upscale collection of 20 three-bedroom residences, ranging from 1,280 to 1,500 square feet of luxurious contemporary living. 

Carefully curated by Space 9 Interior Design Inc., these elegant residences offer a seamless blend of traditional and contemporary architecture with brushed oak hardwood floors, high ceilings, expansive windows that flood the homes in natural sunlight, heated floors and soaker tubs in the master ensuite and air conditioning.

In the evenings, entertain family and friends on your expansive front and back patios. (Some townhomes will have a rooftop terrace off the master bedroom).  

The epicurean kitchens will inspire you to cook more often. Each bright and airy kitchen comes with a premium line of European stainless-steel appliances by Bosch, including integrated refrigerator and dishwasher, gas stove, as well as a waterfall kitchen island, high end European contemporary cabinetry, and Caesarstone countertops and backsplash. 

“A private lush greenway connects the homes and the children’s play area is perfect for young families,” says Will Wang, development and marketing manager, Shokai Canada, adding 90 per cent of Phase 1 is sold. “West Oak is attracting young families, that want to move to this neighbourhood to enjoy the great amenities, the excellent schools and its convenient central location.”

A lot of thought went into West Oak’s lush landscaping, with a deep commitment to sustainability, including the rain water management system to efficiently water the plants naturally rather than discharged into the municipal sewage system. To that end, plants were chosen for their strong root water absorption capacity. 

“The degree of greening in our community is the highest among similar projects,” says Wang.

Ideally situated in close proximity to major transit hubs, West Oak is within walking distance to the world-class Queen Elizabeth Park, VanDusen Botanical Gardens and Langara Golf Course. The Canada Line SkyTrain is less than a kilometre away and Oak Street connects you to downtown Vancouver, YVR Airport and the Lower Mainland within minutes. 

West Oak’s many amenities are close by, while this prime Vancouver address also offers top rated schools and recreational opportunities, all within easy walking or driving distance.

Townhomes in a walkable, lively neighbourhood are becoming increasingly sought-after. Oakridge is one of the most exciting areas of urban change in Vancouver. West Oak provides an opportunity for buyers to own a beautiful Shokai home, while embracing an exciting lifestyle in the city.

West Oak is yet another example of the exceptional quality that Shokai Canada is well known for across the globe; it is the standard the company delivers in each of its projects.  

West Oak’s presentation centre and display suite, located at 1510 West 71st Ave., Vancouver, is open Saturday to Thursday by appointment only. For more information or to register, call 778-716-6888, email [email protected] or visit Occupancy is set for winter 2023.
