There’s a beautiful new presale coming to False Creek – Pinnacle On The Park! Fresh of the heels of the wildly successful Pinnacle Living False Creek and 88 West First Avenue, Pinnacle International is proud to announce the newest addition to Vancouver’s False Creek community, Pinnacle on the Park!

Pinnacle On The Park, a proposed 18 storey building includes 2-storey ground-oriented townhouses as part of a podium providing a strong urban/pedestrian edge along Ontario Street and 1st Avenue. The 5 storey 1st Avenue podium faces north towards East Park, and south to a landscaped courtyard of the Lane. The northwest corner of the building has been setback from 1st Avenue more than the required minimum, to maintain the northern view corridor from 2nd Avenue and Ontario Street. The main entry is situated off Ontario Street.

Vehicular access from the Lane to the site, for loading and parking, is restricted to the south edge of the tower form. Underground parking is accessed by a ramp to a 4.5 level parkade for resident and visitor parking, along with bike and residential storage lockers. Parkade design anticipates future access and knock-out panel at the P1 east wall for vehicular access to the adjacent site, if required. Loading and waste storage with 3 waste streams is located within the building at grade, along the lane.

Pedestrian circulation includes direct outdoor access from ground floor units, including south-facing garden units in the east podium. Exit and access is provided between east podium and the Lane.

BACKGROUND
Southeast False Creek is one of the earliest settled areas in the Vancouver area. Historically the area supported the province’s resource industry as a commercial and industrial area. Prior to warehouses and light industrial use, the area was cleared and settled with cabins and houses.

The design for 2-26 East 1st Avenue, Pinnacle On The Park responds to the City of Vancouver Official Development Plan By-Laws for South East False Creek, July 2005. Rezoning from M-2 Industrial District to CD-1 Comprehensive Development District was passed at a Public Hearing held on July 18th, 2006. The site is situated within the East ‘Railyard’ of the SEFC area.

A guiding principle to the overall Master Plan of the SEFC area is to provide a neighbourhood that benefits from public spaces that enhance the pedestrian and urban social experiences for residents and visitors to the area. This is supported by a scale of buildings in the development that work in parallel with an enhanced urban fabric based on sustainable living concepts. Priority has been given to incorporating into the overall design of the area generously landscaped pedestrian plazas, parks and courtyards, sidewalks, drop-off areas.

DESIGN APPROACH
The underlying approach to the tower design is to develop a simple but dynamic form, with vertical emphasis at the north edge, as a point of focus as viewed from the north, and as a modest counterpoint to the spherical Science Centre to the north across False Creek. The tower form is intended to stand apart from neighbouring buildings, as agreed-upon with City staff early in the design process. Material and colour selections will be developed during the preparation for development permit application, but current thought is to employ a relatively restrained approach, allowing the building form to do the bulk of the work

BUILDING MASS
The small site is positioned in a highly visible location within the neighbourhood, opposite the narrow south end of East Park. The tower form will serve as a visual termination for views south from the park and from the seawall north of the park. The tower shape is derived in part to respond to this contextual condition.

The tower is oriented on the north-south axis and the form is compressed towards the north edge, maximizing the potential for units to have sunlight and views north towards the water, future park and north-shore mountains. The narrowed north edge provides a profile of reduced width, as viewed from the north. The tower penthouse massing is configured to reinforce the narrow, vertical expression of the building’s north edge. Unit balconies are kept to the east and west sides of the tower form, in order to maintain a relatively unobstructed north facade. The proposed building height (174.6 feet) is the maximum allowable based on the zoning bylaw in addition to the proposed Additional Penthouse Storeys.

The 1st avenue podium is comprised of 2-storey townhomes, 2 levels above, and a setback penthouse floor. The Ontario street wall defines 2 levels at grade, and a 3rd floor massing setback to delineate the transition to
the tower form, above.

The projecting north facade form has a recessed counterpart on the Lane elevation, extending to the tower roof in a continuous plane.

The tower roof is subtly animated with a stair enclosure providing access to rooftop terraces. Roof forms are restricted to the central region, in order to minimize shadow and visual impact.

LANDSCAPE RATIONALE
Ground Level and Public Realm  |  The public realm design along 1st Avenue and Ontario Street reflect the SEFC design guidelines with granite sett boulevards, planting under street trees, planted bulges and and concrete sidewalks with sawcut pattern.

GROUND FLOOR COURTYARD
In keeping with the railyard precinct, much of the landscape design is linear and plays off the width of train track. To reinforce the site’s historic reference, use of salvage rails is a key site element. The courtyard’s main program is focused on more passive uses where one can sit on a bench and relax and enjoy the garden. The small lawn area, bordered with shrub planting along the laneway provides a space for lounging, ball play within a secure zone created by the planting buffer along the laneway. Two points of access and the green landscape buffer enhances the laneway edge and creates a more inviting laneway; ultimately encouraging pedestrians to use laneways as an extension of the pedestrian public realm.

Along both 1st Avenue and Ontario Street, private townhomes with raised patios, planters with low evergreen hedge create a sense of privacy and separation between the public and private zones. At the North-West corner a large outdoor amenity patio anchors the corner. Although being raised to provide separation with the public realm, the terrace with its open edge along the street, encourages interaction between residents and other neighbor’s walking along the street, building a strong sense of community.

ROOF GARDENS
Levels 6 – Amenities  |  Level 6 is one of the common outdoor amenities on this project. With its ideal siting for sun exposure and light, this roof is programmed as a more active hub for residents to socialize and built a sense of community.

Some of the main program includes urban agriculture plots complete with dwarf fruits trees, edible plants and all the support equipment to nourish a sustainable lifestyle. Additionally a small children’s play area, incorporating rubber mounds and forms allow for unstructured and dynamic play, while eing colourful to engage children. Ideally located near the urban agriculture and outdoor dining/lounge are for easy supervision.

Finally at the North-east corner is an outdoor kitchen with harvest style table, a great place for residents to have larger gathering an take in the mountain, future park views.

ROOFTOP
At the top floor has been programmed with two generous private terrace along the front to take advantage of mountain and city vistas. The balance of the roof is intended as an extensive green roof with contrasting colour bands, which make a suggestive reference to a series of train tracks.

LANDSCAPE SUSTAINABILITY
The majority of landscape will be vegetated with native or adaptive plant species to reduce water requirements, all while providing an aesthetically pleasing landscape year round. All non-accessible roofs will be planted with a mix of pollinator plants, sedums, perennials to enhance plant diversity, habitat and promote bee population.
