Vancouver, BC V6B 5K2

Richmond, BC V7A 1M5

Library Square

Vancouver, BC V6B 6B1

The new library is beautiful, and if you’re tired of perusing the archives, there are also cafes, shops, a waterfall, and more to let you relax.

Sam Kee Building
8 W Pender St
Vancouver, BC V6B 1R5

To widen Pender Street, the City of Vancouver took most off the land Chang Toy had purchased intending to build an office building.  Instead of giving up, he built a 4 foot, 11 inch deep complex on the tiny sliver that now stands as a monument to one man’s refusal to fold in the face of bureaucracy.  Really, an interesting sight.

Vancouver Lookout Harbour Centre Tower
555 West Hastings Rd
Vancouver, BC V6B 4N5
(604) 689-0421

The Lookout Tower soars 581 ft into the air, higher than any other in Vancouver, and it gives great panoramic views of the city.  It’s got glass 360 degrees around for spectacular sights, and a restaurant on top takes advantage of it.  The glass elevator trip to the top is a nice touch.
