Art Deco gem!

This is an Art Deco gem. Look at the outside and take in the details (from the 1930s) - statues of airships, biplanes, nurses in uniform, fish. Go into the small lobby and look around... especially the elevators doors and shiny brass fittings.

One of the few or maybe the only Art Deco building in Vancouver. If you are coming from NYC or Chicago it will not be worth it, but it will for the rest. Make sure to walk in. The lobby is worth it.

Beautiful Art Deco building. The pub is great. Take the 10 minutes to walk through if you are into architecture.

This building is a commercial office building near the Vancouver Harbour. It is part of the history of Vancouver and has a number of interesting architectural features. The floor in the lobby is particularly interesting. Not a 'must see' unless you are really into the history of vancouver or have an interest in architecture.

... or the TV movie "The Trial of the Incredible Hulk", then of course you will want to see this lovely building that featured so prominently in both of those productions. Or maybe even if you just like gorgeous art deco buildings. It's too bad that what was previously a waterfront building is now so hemmed in by the Coal... More

to really appreciate this building you have to go inside the lobby to appreciate the art and workmanship form the 1920's that is seldom seen in buildings, easier to reach lots of parking nearby but fills up quickly, best to go on a weekend, nice British pub inside the building

We had seen this building but the Capilano bus driver pointed it out so we decided on a closer look. As he had explained, check out the lifts interior & you can get some great reflective shots from all the surrounding glass towers. definitely a place to visit, there is also a coffee shop on the ground floor if in...

I rarely suggest visiting a building but this one is worth a visit. A beautiful art deco building that has been lovingly maintained. The lobby is gorgeous.
