The Building - The Standard Building

HISTORY: (Scroll down to bypass to Building Location and Building Offerings) In 1916, this building was listed as the Standard Bank Building. It was briefly known as the Weart Building named after its promoter, J W Weart, but it quickly got named after its most important tenant. Like the Birks Building and the Yorkshire Building built in the same period, the Standard Bank Building was supplied with ornamental ironwork from the Chicago Ornamental Iron Co. The steel frame was tested by The Robert W. Hunt & Company Engineers’ Bureau of Inspection, Tests and Consultation, of Chicago, (as was the Hotel Vancouver and the Bank of Ottawa). Seattle architects Russell Babcock and Rice carried out the design. The Standard Bank Building had a variety of tenants – there was the Venetian barber on the main floor, a tea room on the second floor, and the Canadian Red Cross had offices on the third floor, as well as Brighouse and Brighouse, dentists. The other floors had a thorough mix from lawyers, accountants, steelworks offices, lumber mills offices, a fish company, a creosote company and up on the fifteenth floor, J W Weart’s own office, as well as Winifred Kindleyside’s public stenographers. Today, with no Standard Bank left in town it’s just the Standard Building, and at over 100 years old showing absolutely no sign of being irrelevant to the 21st Century city. So far the Standard building has over 100 years on the clock, and looks good for 100 more. (Sourced from changingvancouver.wordpress.com) BUILDING LOCATION: - Corner of West Hastings Street and Richards Street; - Steps from the landmark transit hub of Vancouver, The Waterfront Station; - Close to the Financial District; - Beside the Granville Entertainment District; - At the edge of Historic Gastown; - Surrounded by many popular pubs and restaurants.

The proximity to Vancouver’s main sky-train and bus terminals, sea bus, and the abundanceof parking choices have made the Standard Building an ideal location for many businesses.
