The Seattle architectural firm of Augustus W. Gould and Édouard Frère Champney operated for three years between 1909 and 1912. This was one of two designs that it produced for sites in Vancouver, BC,

Building History

As Dennis A. Andersen has noted, Gould and Champney originally produced a design for the Glyn Building Project, Vancouver, BC, Canada, 1911. Jonathan Rogers, President of the Vancouver Board of Trade, commissioned Gould and Champney to economize on the previous Glyn Building plans, creating his 10-story skyscraper. This simplification was seen especially at the Glyn Building's cornice line which had enlarged and extensive ornamentation and was topped by a balustrade. The Rogers design had none of this finery.
