Sunday Morning at the Marine

Comments 1 by Rebecca Bollwitt

The Vancouver Heritage Foundation has partnered with JJ Bean Coffee Roasters for an informative workshop focusing on the Marine Building, one of Vancouver’s most well-loved structures. As one of the building’s most recent tenants, JJ Bean will host Sunday Morning at the Marine and shine a spotlight on this art deco gem.

Construction began March 13, 1929 with a ceremony attended by Mayor W.H. Malkin who blew a golden whistle to start the excavators in motion. The building formally opened October 7, 1930 with 21 floors at a height of 321 feet – it defined Vancouver’s skyline.

When: Sunday, March 10, 2013 from 10:00am to 12:00pm
Tickets: Available online for $25 or call (604) 246-9642.
