Overview

This fabulous art deco building amid downtown's square steel uniformity is an ornate sight to behold. Designer J W Hobbs wanted to transpose the architectural grandeur of New York City to then-modest Vancouver, and he did so with terracotta, steel, brass, marble, intricate nautical details, gargoyles, murals and an impressive 40-foot (12-meter) archway entrance. The 25-story Marine Building was built in the late 1920s and serves today as an office building.
