One Wall Centre, also known as the Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre Hotel, is a mixed-use skyscraper in Downtown Vancouver, British Columbia. From 2001 to 2008, it was Vancouver's tallest building until the Living Shangri-La was built.[5] The tower has 25 hotel floors in the lower levels with 344 rooms and 17 condo floors in the upper levels with 74 units. There are another 389 hotel rooms that are found in the connected Sheraton Wall Centre Hotel.[5] In 2001, the building was awarded the Emporis Skyscraper Award for Best New Skyscraper.[5]

The building was featured in the 2006 movie X-Men: The Last Stand as the Worthington labs building that they used to give the cure to the mutants.[6]
