The Pither and Leiser Building is valued as an example of Edwardian era commercial architecture. It was designed by Hooper and Watkins, one of the province’s leading architectural firms, and constructed in 1905.
Pither and Leiser were importers of wines, liquors, and cigars from around the world, and were one of British Columbia’s most successful import businesses at the time of this building’s construction.
The firm was based in Victoria and as their business expanded, this building was opened as their Vancouver warehouse and distribution centre.
