If you like art deco you must stop and take a look at this lobby. It is beautiful and kept up well. It really harkens back to a more civilized age, really charming.

WE must have walked past this building quite a few times, without realising what it was. The width of the building is very small. On the day we were there it was closed as it was after hours. We then left for our cruise and...More

If you're into Art Deco, don't miss this building in Fairmont's business district. It's an easy walk from the cruise terminal and the Fairmont Hotels. I believe it's almost entirely a business building but you can explore the outside and the first floor where the...More

Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is
bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their
lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's
plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and
corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau
restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping

Sites for historic architecture (11 Replies)
We are interested in historic sites and have noted Gastown and the Marine Building. Are there any other areas or sites in Downtown Vancouver or within reasonable travel (by public transportation) where we could see historic architecture and/or heritage sites? Many thanks

Thanks for these very comprehensive details and for the effort in providing them. They will be very helpful. As a general rule, we are more interested in appearance and facades, than the insides of museums, but we don't have an absolute rule. I've got a bit of reading tonight now, thanks. Cheers
