Located at 757 West Hastings Street between Granville and Howe streets, the center comprises four buildings that were restored in 1986 & renamed after former Vancouver MP James Sinclair.
The main post office, in an Edwardian Baroque style, was housed here from 1910 until the new one opened in 1958. The atrium clock consisting of four 12-foot-diameter clocks, was built in 1909 and is the largest clock movement in Western Canada (the minute hands alone weigh 202 pounds each.
