“Special Landmark of Vancouver”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2014

I used to work in this building and it was funny how many people were standing at the entrance when I get off work every day. The building is well maintained. There is a small corner at the lobby explaining the history of the building. They have kept originals of many materials. Many movies were actually filmed here. Highly recommended for a brief walk and take pictures of this spacticular masterpiece.

“If you love architecture...or Smallville”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

The Marine Building is right downtown, near restaurants and shopping. It's only a 2-minute stop, but if you have the tiniest interest in architecture, or were a fan of Smallville or the many other movies and TV shows that have featured the lobby, you've got to take the couple of minutes out of your day to photograph the doorway and elevator lobby.
