Marine Building

Marine Building - Vancouver, Canada
The Marine Building


Constructed between Mar 1929 and Oct 1930, this art deco building was the tallest building in the British Empire for a brief period of time.
The Marine Building is still, for old-timers, the building most clearly identified with Vancouver. Its unique wedding cake “icing”, topped by that vaguely Mayan tower, makes a dramatic and exciting backdrop as you look west down Hastings. It is one of the great art deco buildings in the world.
The Marine Building is a skyscraper located at 355 Burrard Street in Downtown Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada near the Financial District, designed by McCarter Nairne and Partners.
