The Jack Chow Building is a fascinating historical landmark that is well known in Vancouver’s Chinatown.

Designated as a heritage site, this quirky structure measures only 4 feet, 10 inches wide, earning a spot in the Guinness Book of Records as the “World’s Narrowest Commercial Building”. The building, which is home to Jack Chow Insurance, was renovated in 2016. ¬†A new glass facade now extends the space and glass blocks line the sidewalk, creating a backdrop for¬†beautifully synchronized light and music displays that showcase the unique architecture of the building.
