Canadian Linen Company Building Architects: Townley & Matheson This 1929 art deco and moderne-style industrial building was built for the Vancouver-based Canadian Linen Company. It grew to become the largest rental supplier of work uniforms and restaurant linen in Canada. The design by Townley & Matheson, the architects of Vancouver's city hall, incorporated the company's initials into cast decorative medallions above the windows. The 1999 redevelopment of the site included preservation of the original building and its boiler room chimney, and construction of the 29-storey Metropolis tower designed by Stuart Howard Architects.
