The Pier is a Historic Undertaking

"It will be as profound for the North Shore as False Creek and Granville Island were for Vancouver. The Pier will open the waterfront and preserve our sense of identity. It will be the place to be... to work, to shop, create art, dine, meet and gather, stroll the seawall and the 700-foot pier.

Most especially, it will be the place to live a luxurious West Coast lifestyle to the fullest—with spectacular views and the premiere recreational facilities on our side of the water."

  • Excellent Weekend at the Pinnacle!

    We checked in on Friday to our lovely, large clean room. We were upgraded from our mountain view room to waterfront room so our visit was really special. We needed to be in that location for the weekend so the location was special for us.

  • Birthday Stay

    My husband and I like to come for a night away on our birthdays. The Pinnacle is close to home, but it is still a great get away. We always appreciate finding chocolate covered strawberries in the mini fridge, a great treat.

  • Home away from home

    The Pinnacle at the Pier is always my first choice when working in Vancouver. Nestled in hip LOLO and a quick Seabus ride to downtown, the Pinnacle offers a budget friendly refuge away from home.. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable. The fitness facility is great – workout to a view of the harbour before swimming laps and soaking in the hot tub.

The Pier has become Metro Vancouver’s most anticipated redevelopment – a dynamic restoration that honors the past while bridging the future

This revitalization project pays homage to the North Shore’s shipbuilding tradition – and the prosperity it brought to North Vancouver – within a spectacular new development featuring luxury residences (including the Pinnacle Residences), galleries, marketplaces, boutique shops and one-of-a-kind restaurants.

And at the heart of it all is a boardwalk and 700-foot pier, where the only thing between you and downtown Vancouver is the rippling water and occasional boat gliding past. This is the perfect place for taking in 360-degree views of Vancouver and the North Shore. Find out more about The Pier restoration.

History of the Pier

During the 1940’s, local shipyards were working heads-down, building a full third of Canada’s Victory ships for our World War II efforts overseas. That meant three round-the-clock shifts, day after day, year after year.

During its nine decades of operations, the shipyards at the Pier launched more than 450 ships – a remarkable achievement and essential contributor to the economic vitality of British Columbia in the 20th Century.
