About Marine Building, Vancouver

Adding to the few art-deco buildings around the city, the Marine building is loved for its wedding ‘cake’ icing effect with a Mayan tower that catches your eye straight away and an entrance that is a spectacular sight on its own. The wall clock on the east wall of the lobby is known for including the 12 signs of zodiac in its face instead of numbers.

With the modern buildings that are built all around the city, the Marine Building preserves a unique architectural sight. Take a walk inside to see the embellishments that make it special.

  • What an amazing example of art deco architecture. Built in 1930, it is so surprising that this beautiful building has not been torn down in a city that does not always respect the past. We were blown away by the lobby with its sea-themed decor, plaster work and stained glass. The historical plaque is informative.

  • Old historic office building.. think built in the 30's. Used to be the British empires tallest buildong when built. It's nice but showing its age.. I guess will depend on your office renovations. Entrance feels historic...

  • Just go inside the entrance and it's a beautiful example of Art Deco in the past.

  • Beautiful Art Deco building. Well worth going inside just to see the entrance hall and elevators!

  • Definitely worth seeing if you're interested in architecture in general or art deco. Beautiful and incredible attention to detail.
