Atrium at the Pier Condos – West and East Tower Releases
Located on the south side of East Esplanade lies the Atrium West and Atrium East condo mid-rise tower residences at the North Vancouver Pier waterfront development. Presale release started in mid-2008 to much fanfare for these luxurious Lower Lonsdale waterfront Atrium at the Pier condominium homes.

Currently, the Pier presentation centre is only selling Atrium West condos with Atrium East launch coming later in the year depending on when the first mid-rise Pier condo tower sells-out. More than 50% sold out already in pre-construction phase, the Pier North Vancouver’s latest phase of this master planned Lower Lonsdale waterfront community consists of Atrium West on the south side of East Esplanade and north side of Victory Ship Way, a new car lane that will separate it and the proposed mid-low rise condominium residences in front of it. The presale Atrium West condos at the Pier waterfront will be 13 storeys while the pre-construction Atrium East condominium mid-rise will tower up 12 storeys high.

Some of the amazing standard features at the pre-sales Atrium at the Pier West and East towers include air conditioning and central heating in all suites. This is very unique in the Lower Lonsdale condo market. In addition, the presale Atrium West condos represent the first North Vancouver waterfront residences being built in a long time. Different from the Pinnacle Residences, the Atrium mid-rise condos will not be joined to the boutique hotel. In addition, all units at the Atrium at the Pier waterfront condos will have prime water views and will be next to the Pinnacle Residences and where all the community amenities will be housed. All suites will have custom designed electric fireplaces with a customized granite mantle piece that is striking to say the least, and the presale Lower Lonsdale waterfront condos at the Pier Atrium North Vancouver offering will come with both crown mouldings (in all rooms) as well as contemporary style baseboards. As usual, the Pinnacle Atrium Lower Lonsdale condominiums will have in suite washer and dryer standard (front loading for energy efficiency). Pre-construction home buyers at this phase will also have the choice of porcelain tile or hardwood options for their main living areas and all bedrooms will have plush carpeting for warmth and comfort. A solid core entry door is also standard in all pre-sales Atrium Suites at the Pier waterfront development in Lower Lonsdale.

More Atrium West and Atrium East Pier Standard Finishings
If you are looking for high-end luxury condominiums, the new Pier Atrium condos and townhomes will definitely deliver on everything. The bathrooms will have designer cabinetry and vanities and granite counter tops in all bathrooms are all standard. The elegant imported tiled porcelain flooring is gleaming white and very high-end. The pre-construction Lower Lonsdale Atrium at the Pier North Vancouver offerings will also come with a Kohler porcelain sink, custom designed frame mirror as well as glass separating the master ensuite and the master bedroom, creating a spa-like experience with ambiance and natural lighting. In addition, these pre-construction North Vancouver Pier waterfront Atrium condos will have Kohler elongated water closets and luxurious deep and wide soaker tubs with tiled surrounds (for specific homes) in addition to separate glass walk-in showers with tile surround as well (for specific homes again). The master ensuites will also incorporate contemporary halogen pot lighting for extra detailing work. The kitchens at the waterfront Pier real estate development in Lower Lonsdale North Vancouver property market features the Atrium West and Atrium East luxury finishings that include Bosch appliances (dishwasher, gas cook top with four burners, built in wall oven, microwave oven and hood fan) in addition to a stainless steel refridgerator from Liebherr that has an ice maker too. Some other impressive features of the pre-sales waterfront Atrium Lower Lonsdale condominium residences at The Pier will include granite countertops and porcelain tiled flooring with the option to change that to hardwood flooring. Also, all kitchen cabinetry will have blumotion technology incorporated and Kohler fixtures are standard throughout. Pendent lighting and recessed pot lighting give the kitchens the final touch at the new Atrium at the Pier Lower Lonsdale condos.

The Lower Lonsdale Atrium West Condos
As mentioned, the latest waterfront Lower Lonsdale Pier condo sales release is for Atrium West mid-rise tower on the south side of East Esplanade. Here you will find a thirteen story concrete and glass tower that features impressive floor plans that are open concept and bright. On Atrium West at the Pier levels one and two, you can choose from a range of one bedroom suites around 600 sq ft to two bedroom presale Lower Lonsdale condos at around 1000 sq ft. They also have very large entertainment style balconies of 47 to 178 sq ft with the exception of a couple of corner suites with terraces of 274 and 415 sq ft in size. On Levels 3 and 4 of the pre-construction Pier Atrium West waterfront condos in North Vancouver’s Lower Lonsdale real estate market, you will find a rnage of one bedrooms at 585 sf to corner two bedrooms at 1035 sf in size in addition to the unique presale Atrium West Townhomes at the Pier development. These very spacious two level Atrium Townhomes at the Pier feature one bedroom suites ranging from 804 to 1115 sq ft with terraces at 196 sq ft. The pre-construction Pier Townhomes at the Atrium West building will feature the master bedroom, office/den and master ensuites on the upper level, a large ‘open to below’ space and the ground floor with a den, dining, kitchen, pantry, living/dining room, fireplace and outdoor terrace. These are very popular suites, so make sure you inquire for more information about these pre-sales Atrium West Townhomes at the Pier in Lower Lonsdale. They face north. The most impressive suites are the pre-sale North Vancouver Atrium West Penthouse Suites at the Pier Lower Lonsdale waterfront community. Here you will find three Pier Penthouses at Atrium West that include PH1 (2 bed with 1380 sf interior, 848sf terrace, and 1276sf rooftop deck), PH2 (three bed plus den 1595 sf, two spacious terraces and 404 sf roof deck) and PH3 (three bedroom at 1620 sf, 563 terrace and 755 sf roof deck with impressive downtown and water/mountain views). The Atrium West Tower is located at 162 Victory Ship Way and right now, the Lower Lonsdale Pier penthouse suites in this building are from $1,799,900 to $2,199,900. The one bedroom suites range from $469,900 to $579,900. The presale Atrium West at the Pier Lower Lonsdale real estate offerings with two bedroom condos range from $749,900 to $829,900.

The Floorplans for Atrium East at the Pier
The sales presentation centre in Lower Lonsdale real estate have yet to release more information about the launch date for the waterfront Atrium East condo mid-rise tower at The Pier development. However, as part of the Atrium West marketing brochure, the Atrium East floor plans are also printed in there. Currently, we know that the pre-construction Atrium East at the Pier waterfront North Vancouver real estate offering will be very similar to its twin tower, but will be twelve storeys. The main different is that the presale Pier Condos at Atrium East will have their one bedroom and den townhome units on the second and third floors (versus the 3rd and 4th floors at Atrium West), but for the most part, all other floor plans are quite similar in layout. Some other more detailed differences is that the pre-construction Lower Lonsdale Pier Atrium East condos that have two bedrooms have better layouts in that the two bed rooms are separated in different parts of the home (instead of back to back). In addition, wherever there are two bathrooms, they are also not back to back. Unless you are on the upper two or three floors of Atrium East at the Pier, you will only have peek-a-boo water views as there is scheduled to be a proposed mid-rise residential building in front of Atrium East. The top floors will have unobstructed downtown skyline and water views to the south. The Atrium East waterfront condos are expected to be slightly higher priced than Atrium West units of the similar square footage, but there are early indications that they will be very similar in pricing.
