Square Feet


The Opportunity:

This space, originally the Yorkshire Bank, is a three story retail/office opportunity that fronts on to Seymour St.  It features many of the original features of the building upon its build in 1914. There are large separate rooms/offices, a board room, bathrooms, and a large open work space. It has two large safes that were utilized during its use as a bank. This is a very unique  and original space in the downtown business district. We would have a architect and a project management company work with the prospective tenant. Tenant improvements for full customization would be included. The space can be reduced to ~6000 square feet if the Tenant wishes to exclude the front retail/office space.  If your looking for a original space at an affordable price, with the flexibility to make it your own, this is an incredible opportunity.

About Seymour Building

Built between 1912 and 1920, with construction delays caused by WWI, the Yorkshire Guarantee and Securities Corporation Ltd Building, later known as the Seymour Building, exists today as one of the best Neo-Gothic edifices remaining in Vancouver. Designed by the Vancouver-based firm of Somervell & Putnam, the distinctive 10-storey granite-faced office tower stands at 525 Seymour Street in the heart of downtown Vancouver, where the bustling cityscape around the historic block has evolved significantly over the last century.

At 10 storeys, the Yorkshire Building was once one of the tallest in the city. Its Neo-Gothic carved-granite facade was a symbol of progress amid a cityscape that had evolved dramatically since the end of the 19th century, while its diminutive neighbours were proof-positive of Vancouver's breakneck pace of development — a situation as true then as it is today (Written by Adrian Gamble)
