Vancouver Lookout Tower - FURTHER INFORMATION
Vancouver Lookout Tower - Vancouver visitor guide showing a virtual tour of 'Vancouver Lookout Tower' linked to an interactive map with local and travel information. 360° panoramas from British Columbia.
The Vancouver Lookout is one of the top tourist attractions in Vancouver. Visitors are whisked to a viewing floor 168.8m above ground level by glass-fronted elevators that ascend the outside of the tower. These give an unprecedented unfolding of the skyline on the way up. From the observation deck, there is a 360° panoramic view of the whole of the city taking in many of the major sights and the mountains beyond. On a clear day this view stretches all the way to Vancouver Island and the North Shore Mountains. Information plaques beneath each window explains something of the view below and on-hand guides are there to answer any questions.
It is easy to see why the Vancouver Lookout is one of the main tourist attractions in the city. The tower was designed by WZMH Architects and rises above the Harbour Centre. It was officially opened by Neil Armstrong in 1977 and today forms a prominent landmark in Vancouver, visible from many parts of the city.
