An evening in the penthouse
of the Marine Building

Heritage Vancouver invites you to a unique opportunity to explore the two floors of the ultra-elegant private penthouse at the top of Vancouver’s finest heritage building. Enjoy the Art Deco atmosphere and the fabulous view, hear about its unique history, and share your experiences, stories, and photos of the Marine Building.

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. Donald Luxton and Chuck Davis will intrigue you with stories of the architecture and history of the Marine Building.

Heritage Vancouver

Heritage Vancouver informs our community about opportunities to appreciate, preserve, and restore our heritage structures and neighbourhoods through events, tours, films, forums, and reports.

Heritage structures are community landmarks that are tangible expressions of the era in which they were created and which contribute to the character, attractiveness, and quality of life in our neighbourhoods.

Heritage structures identify and define our communities, connect us to our history and our diverse heritage, and are our legacy for the enjoyment of future generations.

Heritage Vancouver works with developers, architects, businesses, associations, community groups, and arts and cultural organizations to preserve our heritage structures and neighbourhoods.
