At 1235 Nelson is an apartment building built in the Moderne design in 1930-1931.
In 1993 the aluminum windows were replaced by replicas with wooden sash and leaded glass detailing that resemble the originals.
On Jervis Street, still in the West End, there is Blenheim Court.
It was built in 1910 and designed by Arthur J. Bird. I have written on Bird before, he was the City of Vancouver's chief architect and inspector for many years as well as being a famous architect in his own right. Bird introduced masonry construction to Western Canada with this building.
In 2008 Gordon Nelson Inc. purchased the building which was in dire need of repair. They restored the building inside and out with spectacular heritage features. If you would like to read about the work Gordon Nelson Inc did then please click this link 1209 Jervis.
