Oakridge Centre – The re imagined Oakridge Shopping Centre will have at its hub, a world-class food hall called the Kitchen. Spanning 100,000 SF over 2 levels, its seating capacity is over 3,400 people (three and a half times larger than the Metropolis at Metrotown’s food court) and will house up to 20 kiosks operated by changing global culinary talents. The mezzanine is also going to have a brew pub with an outdoor patio and opens into a 9-acre rooftop public park. Inspired by the great traditional food halls of Europe and the contemporary ones in Asia, this food hall will include food from international chefs, giant skylights and wooden ceiling beams.
