Facilities and Capacity
From the outside, this location catches the eye with its modern design and stylish architecture. Featuring glass, recycled wood, and elements of metal, it is a multifaceted building that combines numerous materials for a unique look. Upon entry, everyone is greeted by an inviting lobby space which would be an ideal place to enjoy a cocktail hour. What’s more, the Gordon Smith Gallery makes for a suitable place to mix and mingle surrounded by artistry and sophistication. For the all-important ceremony, an onsite park provides a charming area where the couple can say “I do” and hand each other their special rings. Underneath the stone archway, the to-be-weds can stand as their guests share the special moment. After the milestone moment has taken place and the couple has become newlyweds, the wedding party can make their way to celebrate the reception.
Undoubtedly, the fifth floor is the venue’s pièce de résistance as it is where the partying and revelries can take place. A multifaceted event area, it provides breathtaking views of different scenery—ocean, mountains, and sky.

The View is the BEST!
Stunning views, amazing staff, fantastic food, exceptional professionalism, and not enough wonderful adjectives to describe how the whole event turned out. Huge thank you to Allison for making it all so easy to organize, for providing support and ideas and doing so much of the planning on our behalf.
Would do it all again in a heartbeat!

I loved our wedding at the View. We had our ceremony on the patio overlooking the city of Vancouver and the reception inside. The View really does live up to it's name. They were great with letting up set up the day before and picking items up in the loading bay at a later day after the wedding.Sent on 23/09/2017
