SLIGHT REDESIGN – 601 Beach Crescent by Pinnacle
They have shifted the site 21 metres north from the original application, to reduce any shadowing on a nearby park, as well as to views from adjacent residential towers. The height of the tower will be 535 ft. or 163 metres — taller than neighbouring Vancouver House which measures 497 ft. (151 metres)
The podium height along Beach Crescent has been reduced to six storeys, and the podium itself has been pulled away from the Granville Street Bridge to help improve the livability of the residential units.
Rolston Street will be extended southwards and connect Pacific Blvd. to Beach Avenue, running at a diagonal angle underneath the off-ramp to Seymour Street from the Granville Street Bridge — although it’s not clear if it will be open to vehicle traffic or just cyclists and pedestrians. Several retail units in the development will front onto it.
The site is intended to form the other side of the ‘Gateway’ with Vancouver House on the West side of the Granville Bridge. The Pinnacle tower was designed by JYOM International of Shanghai, China, co-founded by Vancouver native Kandice Emmie Kwok. GBL Architects is the architect of record. The High-rise on the east side of Granville Bridge designed to balance and echo Vancouver House.
“Our site is asymmetrical to Vancouver House,” Kandice Kwok, founder of Shanghai-based Jyom Architecture. The firm, which has a Vancouver office, is the lead architect of the project, and locally-based GBL Architects is the architect of record.
“The irregular shape of the site was one challenge, and another challenge was to create a massing that can not only stand out by itself but also complement, contrast, and work with Vancouver House as a gateway into the city.”
She said her team’s own interpretation of Vancouver House, designed by Bjarke Ingels Group, is a “masculine shoulder,” with its “triangular broad shoulders of a man.”
They responded to this unique interpretation by creating a tower design that replicates the elegant character and movement of a dancing female wearing a veil dress.
