The Vancouver Lookout Tower
The Vancouver Lookout opened on August 13, 1977. Astronaut Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, cut the ribbon and welcomed a crowd of dignitaries, Vancouverites, and visitors.
The Lookout tops Harbour Centre which, at 168.8 meters (553.16 feet) high, is one of the tallest buildings in Vancouver and British Columbia. It’s only slightly shorter than nearby Seattle’s Space Needle that rises to 184.4 meters (605 feet).
Our iconic Vancouver attraction tops the Harbour Centre complex, a recognizable landmark in the heart of downtown. One of the tallest buildings in Vancouver, the complex is home to 28 floors of offices, the downtown campus of Simon Fraser University, shops, and a food fair.
