Skinny Building


Is this the narrowest building in the world? That depends on how you define “narrowest” and “building.” At five feet two inches deep, the Skinny Building is at least remarkably skinny. A building in Vancouver’s Chinatown is listed by recordkeepers as the shallowest in the world, but although its ground floor is four feet eleven inches deep, oriels make the upper floor much deeper.

The Skinny Building is at Forbes Avenue and Wood Street, a few blocks from the Wood Street subway station.
