Development is Pinnacle of Perfection
Atrium at the pier is a major redevelopment of former shipyard in North Vancouver
Real estate is all about location — and like anywhere, waterfront property commands a lot of attention. Atrium at the Pier is part of Pinnacle International’s comprehensive revitalization of the former shipyards at the foot of Lonsdale in North Vancouver. It consists of two concrete towers – 12 and 13 storeys respectively – with a total of 176 units.
The 700-foot-long pier and the adjacent Shipyards Historical Precinct are the focal point for an entirely new neighbourhood that already has seen Pinnacle International market, sell, and build over 700 new homes in the past few years. Atrium at the Pier is just a short stroll over to Lonsdale Quay and the SeaBus terminal for the 12-minute crossing into downtown Vancouver. All of the shops, services, and amenities of vibrant LoLo (Lower Lonsdale) are within walking distance.
What really attracts homeowners, however, are the south-facing views across to downtown Vancouver. Floor to ceiling windows, nine-foot ceilings, and spacious decks bring in much-needed sunlight, a huge bonus during the winter months. Air conditioning is standard in all homes. A full range of floor plans and home styles runs from compact one-bedrooms to premium penthouse suites.
No matter the size of unit, each home comes with an outstanding ‘spec list.’ Kitchens feature a Liebherr stainless refrigerator with bottom freezer and icemaker, Bosch appliance set (four-burner gas cooktop, built-in wall oven, microwave oven and hood fan and fully integrated dishwasher), porcelain tile floors and granite countertops.
The spacious living rooms include designer carpet with hardwood or a porcelain tile, crown mouldings, and custom-designed electric fireplace with granite mantle. Bathrooms come equipped with designer cabinetry and vanities with marble countertops, a Kohler under-mount porcelain sink, porcelain tile floor, stylish Kohler polished chrome faucet and bathroom accessories, and either a soaker tub or walk-in shower with tile surround.
All units have ensuite laundry. What makes Atrium at the Pier truly stand out, according to Grace Kwok, principle at Anson Realty, is that “it’s a community with a five-star amenity package.” Atrium at the Pier is adjacent to the Pinnacle Hotel, one of Vancouver’s most highly-rated hotels on Trip Advisor.
Homeowners have access to the same luxuries that high-end travellers do. The Pinnacle Hotel boasts a 25-metre indoor lap pool, state of the art fitness facility, Jacuzzi, steam room and sauna and yoga room. The hotel concierge can handle requests that will make your busy life easy. The Atrium building has a 3,000-square-foot meeting space for social and business functions.
The clincher, and why buying a home at Atrium at the Pier is a tremendous investment: the stellar worldwide reputation of Pinnacle International — one of Canada’s leading builders of luxury condominium residences, hotels, and commercial developments. Kwok says, “Atrium at the Pier is attracting a diverse blend of new homeowners, empty nesters and urban professionals — people who appreciate, the perfect location, uncompromising quality, superb amenities, and who want to live great lifestyle.”
The two Atrium towers have been completed are now ready for occupancy. Come and view five display homes at 172 Victory Ship Way, foot of Lonsdale, in North Vancouver.
The homes at Atrium at the Pier offer the best of five-star living, with outlooks, amenities and lifestyle opportunities that are second to none.
