Work on Onni Group's 43-storey The Charleson wrapped up earlier this fall, as tenants began to take possession of each of the 100 units which call the development home. Designed by DIALOG, the glass-wrapped high-rise has brought a splash of colour to Yaletown thanks to the inclusion of a giant, top-to-bottom psychedelic mural that runs down one side of the 125-metre tower.

With just 100 units spread across 43 storeys, the individual suites have been kept on the large size, especially for downtown Vancouver, ranging from 1,000-3,500 square feet. This arrangement means that no more than three units occupy each floor.

Having replaced a worn out, early 20th century warehouse at the corner of Richards St and Pacific St in Yaletown, The Charleson has succeeded in breathing new life - in the form of 150-plus new residents - into the core. Steps from False Creek, public parks, Granville Island, and the delights of Yaletown, the well-situated development will be a popular address for years to come.
