The ice cream cake look of this structure - just too bad that other buildings are starting to block the view of same as they are built up around The Marine Building

This building - art deco - is absolutely stunning. One of my favorite buildings in Vancouver. If you ever get the chance, go inside and take a look inside the elevators. There is so much beautiful detail to see.

When you are looking at the Marine Building, look behind you to the building to the East. The reflection of the Marine Buidling on the copper glass creates a very interesting contrast in architectual styles. I'm there every 6 weeks for a haircut at Marine Hairstyling, which do a great job, there are also two restaurants on the main floor... More

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
