Faits

  • The city's first steel-framed tower has a 3-storey mansard roof that crowns the tower.
  • The facade features Burmantofts terra cotta from Leeds and polished red granite columns from Aberdeen.
  • The two-storey main entrance is fitted with bronze-plated metal and polished wood.
  • In 1910, the Dominion Trust Company occupied the ground while the floors above accommodated 300 offices, 22 per floor.
  • The 40-foot flag pole flew the British flag for years after the building was completed (Canada did not adopt its own official flag until 1965).
  • City of Vancouver Heritage Award winner in 1998 for restoration of terra cotta cladding.
  • There is a popular myth that the architect fell to his death down the building's circular staircase, while on an inspection tour. The truth is he died in his bed on October 29, 1919.
