CPR Steamship Terminal Building

470 Belleville St
Victoria, BC V8V 4W9

The impressive Canadian Pacific Railway Steamship Terminal building is a testament of the importance of Victoria’s Inner Harbour as the gateway to the city and to western Canada. The original terminal was torn down in 1924 to make room for the current imposing structure designed and built by architects P.L. James and Francis.M. Rattenbury. Built in a neo-classical architectural style with Beaux Arts influence, the massive Ionic columns on the north and south facades of the building accent its status as one of the Inner Harbour’s most visible and significant buildings.The design is intended to playfully reflect a temple of Poseidon, the Greek God of the sea, whose likeness adorns the exterior. The building is on Victoria’s Registry of Historic Buildings.
