Pier West Two of the tallest waterfront towers in all of Western Canada will make for unmistakable landmarks on the New West skyline. Developed by Bosa, Pier West will feature 43- and 53-storey residential towers, with suites boasting high ceilings, kitchens designed by Inform and distant views of the North Shore mountains, as well as shops, restaurants and a child-care facility. But don’t expect any screaming good deals: at more than $900 per square foot (over $2,000 per square foot for the penthouse spaces), Pier West’s prices aren’t far from downtown Vancouver’s—even though it’s still a 30-minute commute away. Steel and Oak Co ee- and berry-infused Ka ee, Simple Things pilsner, Raincoats IPA and the floral Royal City ale are a few of the tasty brews on tap at the Steel and Oak tasting room, a perfect resting point during a riverfront stroll (the bar unfortunately closes at 10 p.m.). Soon there will be more elbow room, too, because city council just gave owners James Garbutt and Jorden Foss the green light to expand the space by 20 seats.
