Following the closure of North Vancouver's Wallace Shipyards, the large swath of prime waterfront has been turned over to developers keen to transform the area into a viable - and highly profitable - new neighbourhood, capitalizing on what have become the some of the best skyline views in Metro Vancouver. Early in on the action, Pinnacle International's development of the new waterfront lands has most recently been focused on the now nearly complete Cascade at the Pier, the two-struture residential complex to bring 201 units to the water's edge.

Thereby joining Atrium and Trophy, Cascade at the Pier continues the transformation now well underway at the former shipyards, the twin, 10-storey mid-rise condos but the latest in a string of developments to call the area home.

Built upon the site of a once-thriving port, the historic footprint of the Wallace Shipyards will likely not remain, the visual clues (as seen above and below) of the site's nautical past due to be remade with modern landscaping.

Designed by IBI Group, Cascade at the Pier will feature many of the same architectural trademarks as its immediate predecessors in the area, such as the metal-rimmed rooftop decoration, evocative of sails, which will provide shade for the duel rooftop terraces and gardens. 

SkyriseVancouver will be sure to return to this project as progress continues. For more information, check out the associated Database file and Forum thread, and as always, feel free to join the conversation in the comments section below.
