A designated historic building, The Marine Building, once the tallest building in the British Empire. Completed in 1930, internationally acclaimed "Art Deco Architecture". The terra cotta exterior and street entrance is stunning and the revolving doors invite you to an impressive main floor lobby. Once in the lobby you are transported back in time, the marbled floors, elevator door detail, ceiling lighting, brass grates to mosaic tiled stairs. A "hidden gem" of downtown Vancouver. Not to be missed on your next visit to Vancouver. Highly recommend.
Would of loved a guided tour of the building and learned more,about the history of the Marine Building. Business tenants occupy upper floors. Enjoy a refreshment, access from lobby to a British pub

A really incredible building with a history to match. It is an amazing structure that we luckily happened upon on our way to the Elephant and Castle.

Be sure to see the windows as well.
