Digging through the negs I found this image of the mall looking west through the courtyard.
New apartments await buyers at 45th and Tisdall, just behind Oakridge Mall. At the time, without the Strata-Title Act they were sold as ‘self-owned’ apartments. Tisdall is still oiled gravel and the land to the west has yet to be subdivided.
Outside courtyard. Look at the unified signage for the stores.
Acres of parking and for it’s time, good planning too. Apartment blocks on the west side, low-rise apartments on the southern edge and then duplexes and single family houses to form the neighbourhood. Love the signage.
Here’s a shot of the original mall and its fountain courtyard. Interesting to see the mall redesign reintroduce the inside/outside idea of older malls.
