One-off Building!

Beautiful, inside and out. Something to see at every turn. Even in the elevator. Make sure to take it up one level for a closer view of the beams and artwork.

Spend a few minutes looking at this great old building. It has a rich history in Vancouver and features worth your time. The lobby is only open Monday-Friday. Elephant and Castle Pub is on the corner.

Such a great building to just stop and stare - and then go inside for more of the same. Art Deco at its finest and then a great cup of coffee in JJ Bean cafe. All in the same style1

This building is delightful if you appreciate architecture. Venture through those fabulous doors and marvel at the amazing detail. Go up in the lift to 2 floor, incredible decor inside. Walk around across bridge & look down on this masterpiece. Don't worry about intruding the business residents are so proud they will show you the way! Thank goodness this building... More

A stunning example of art deco architecture, and one of the very few heritage buildings in Vancouver. This is a must see - not just the gorgeous exterior, but take in the stunning lobby (only open during business hours). The JJ Beans coffee shop in the same complex is contemporary in design, but fits beautifully into this iconic piece of... More

The Marine Building used to dominate the lower downtown skyline. Now it stands in front of a just constructed glass tower--but the tower has a curve to it at the top, so it actually frames the Marine Building nicely. Take a look at the front doors of the Marine Building, and the artistry in the stonework.

This building is worth seeing. The detail that was put into the theme is astounding and quite beautiful. Also really enjoyed hearing the history of the building.

Visiting the building and noticing all of the unique features begs the visitor to learn more about heritage buildings in the city. Just the doors invite the visitor to wonder and admire the artistic toil. Spectacular image for a personal collage of Vancouver's identity.
