Photo - Marine BuildingHeritage Vancouver Society invites you to attend a Special Evening in the ultra-elegant, Jazz Age Penthouse of the Marine Building, "Vancouver's 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 Heritage Vancouver Board member, Isaac Vanderhorst 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 evening.

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