I stayed there a year before moving on to a different venture. I found the office complex wonderful. The staff provided very good and reliable support services, even after formal business hours when necessary-most useful to my schedule. The office atmosphere, relaxed but professional, was very conducive to working. I also feel as if the other tenants are all friends of mine now.

I chose ‘OIMB’ as my company’s address plan provider because of the personal attention I received there by the owner and her staff during my initial market-research visits. Nowhere else was I treated as if my relatively minor requirements were as important to them as they were to me.
We started out here on a ‘temporary’ basis more than two years ago and here we are still! The staff, the service, the understanding and accommodating all our needs has been extemporary and we are delighted to still be here and still feel like members of the family.
‘Offices in the Marine Building’ is the perfect place for a growing business. Prior to this we had our own office and we spent a significant amount of our resources on cleaning, reception, water, security and printing. Now we don’t have to worry about any of those things. The best part is that ‘OIMB’ allows us to grow at our own pace. When we need extra space we ask for it; when we need more resources, we ask for them-and we only pay for those resources when we are using them. A wise business person once told me ‘be patient for growth and impatient for profit’. Being in ‘OIMB’ allows us to live this mantra.
I welcomed the nice change from a multi national business centre to an owner operated one. Decisions were simpler, negotiations friendlier, the sense of community greater and the staff turnover much less. I have enjoyed my time here in the Marine Building and only wish I had made the move down the street sooner.
I am a million times more productive in this office, because it has good feng shui. The view of the Vancouver harbour and Stanley Park from my office is breathtaking and inspires me . I am so glad I found this place.
Great place this. And not too many people understand just why it’s so great. Not only is this owner-managed centre more responsive, more flexible, more supportive, more ‘there’ for you than, say, some multi-national centre, but also you get to be both independent and part of a community–a community of other independent business people, who can often become friends, colleagues, and even partners in some new enterprise. ‘Offices in the Marine Building’ is that beautiful, supportive environment in which you can fly.
