BCARS F-09720
Dominion Trust Building
207 West Hastings Street
J.S. Hyler & Son
1906

This was the tallest building in Canada until the Sun Tower was built down the street. The floor plan is actually circular around a central elevator shaft as opposed to L-shaped which was more common for early skyscrapers of this size. The angled corner is what is called a splayed corner. It borders Victory Square between downtown and Gastown. The architect died by stumbling on a staircase in the building.
