Charleson – Seymour Street

The Charleson is a 43 storey condo and rental tower designed by DIALOG for Onni, with a rental podium and condo tower. Completed in 2017, it replaced a mini-storage warehouse that had originally been built as a storage warehouse, probably for Johnston’s Storage – a moving company – in the mid 1920s. The artwork on the new tower is ‘Finger Paint’ – 416 feet high, and 30 feet wide, created by Vancouver artist Elizabeth McIntosh,
