An Evening at the Marine Building (1930) Penthouse
A Special Fundraising Event on Behalf of Heritage Vancouver

Thursday, April 22, 2010 | 5:30pm to 8:30pm
Location: Marine Building Penthouse, 2000 - 255 Burrard Street
Tickets: $100. Includes wine and hors d'oeuvres (Tax receipts will be issued)

Marine BuildingHeritage Vancouver invites you to attend a Special Fundraising Event in the ultra-elegant Penthouse of the Marine Building, “Vancouverís Finest Heritage Building”.

This is a unique opportunity to explore the two floors of the private Penthouse, enjoy the Art Deco atmosphere and the fabulous view, hear about its unique history and share your own personal experiences, stories and photos of the Marine Building.

Heritage Vancouver President Donald Luxton will lead tours of the lobby of the Marine Building and Chuck Davis, local historian, will intrigue you with stories about the remarkable history of the Penthouse.

The Marine Building, which opened in 1930, was the landmark project of architects McCarter & Nairne. In 1933, A.J.T. Taylor, managing director of British Pacific, bought the building and built a lavish, Art Deco penthouse on the top floor, overlooking the city. A ride on the tiny elevator that connects the Penthouse with the 18th floor is a highlight of the evening.

The Penthouse has many of its original features still intact, and is currently the office of Urbanics Consultants Ltd., our generous host and sponsor for the event.

All proceeds support Heritage Vancouver’s initiatives to conserve Vancouver’s built heritage.

Purchase your tickets early as there are a limited number of spaces for this exclusive event and it will sell out.
