Fodor's Review

Vancouver architect Richard Henriquez knitted four buildings together into Sinclair Centre, an office–retail complex that takes up an entire city block between Cordova and Hastings, and Howe and Granville streets. Inside are high-end designer-clothing shops, federal government offices, and a number of fast-food outlets. The two Hastings Street buildings—the 1910 Post Office, which has an elegant clock tower, and the 1911 Winch Building—are linked with the 1937 Post Office Extension and the 1913 Customs Examining Warehouse to the north. As part of a meticulous restoration in the mid-1980s, the post-office facade was moved to the Granville Street side of the complex. The original clockwork from the old clock tower is on display inside, on the upper level of the arcade.
