Excavation was nearing its end at the False Creek site of Pinnacle on the Park in November 2017, and since that time, vertical construction has nearly hit grade. Designed by Bingham Hill Architects for Pinnacle International, 1738 Ontario Street is giving way to an 18-storey development with ground-level townhomes tying the project to the public realm.
The 137-unit Pinnacle on the Park offers one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans augmented by a fifth floor podium rooftop garden, several social lounges, a fitness facility and a children's play area. Penthouses contain two- to four-bedrooms that also feature large private balconies.
An architectural response in order to maintain the northern view corridor from 2nd Avenue and Ontario Street, the northwest corner of the building employs a setback beyond the required minimum. The design rationale submitted to the City describes the approach to the tower, imagined as 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."
