    Hamilton Hamilton Line B LRT | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    The Dundurn Bottle Neck is such a buzz kill. And will be even more of a buzz kill for those riding the B-Line from Stoney Creek to McMaster. I’m not saying this plan should be placed on hold until the LRT-403-Bridge is back, but I am saying the HSR needs to implement as much of the Re-Envision...

    Hamilton Hamilton Line B LRT | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    Hamilton is not a serious city. This is your answer. Invest elsewhere.

    Hamilton Hamilton Line B LRT | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    Hamilton does not need a subway. Nor does it need gondolas. These are just distractions to keep the ‘debate’ going when we should be talking about why we don’t have our promised rapid transit system after seventeen years of talk. With the new HSR routes, we barely need the planned B-Line Tram...

    Hamilton 106 Bay Street | 25.83m | 6s | CityHousing Hamilton | Kearns Mancini

    Once that auto shop is developed, most of the bldg will be covered up anyway. Then if the houses on the corner are demo’d and developed, all that will be visible is the facade. It’s not 1 Jarvis, but is still infinitely better than privately-developed garbage like 149 Main West. The modular...

    Hamilton 1 Jarvis Street | 49.5m | 14s | Emblem Developments | Studio JCI

    The higher-quality of 1 Jarvis’ finishes makes KiWi look cartoonish next to it. That said, the feel along Ferguson (not pictured) is way more urban than before! Which will only get better once both developments’ Ferguson-facing retail units fill up! Hopefully these developments will somehow...

    Hamilton 282 MacNab Street North | ?m | 10s | Lionheart | KNYMH

    Incorrect. People just don’t like to hear the truth. Especially those involved in an industry that profits wildly off of hype.

    Hamilton McMaster Graduate Student Residence | 97.9m | 30s | Knightstone | Diamond Schmitt

    Look at the TMU Student Centre’s stairs, there is always people hanging out on them. Look at the corner or that Mac bldg. it’s purposely designed to keep people moving (and not ‘loiter’). A major intersection like Hamilton’s King & Bay should be encouraging people to hang out, chat, share...

    Hamilton 282 MacNab Street North | ?m | 10s | Lionheart | KNYMH

    Wow. The propaganda goes deep with this ‘party’ 😂🤣 Did you hear that on YouTube or the Radio? How much taxpayer money is he spending on ad space to brainwash Ontario’s pigeons!? Hamilton Transit has been completely ignored by Ford’s Government, while favouring getting Toronto’s wealthy to...

    Hamilton 11 Robert Street | 19m | 6s | Yoke Group | Lintack Architects

    This is medium-density housing, built on urban land where residential was previously missing (it was a tiny Caribbean market). Sounds like missing middle development to me!

    Hamilton McMaster Graduate Student Residence | 97.9m | 30s | Knightstone | Diamond Schmitt

    The Mac building is awful. This is my opinion as someone who walks by it several times per week. As a pedestrian, I don’t enjoy walking past it. It could / should have been so much better, but this garage entrance is just over the top. For what? So garbage trucks don’t block Bay Street traffic...

    Hamilton 11 Robert Street | 19m | 6s | Yoke Group | Lintack Architects

    I miss Granny’s, but this is a decent trade-off. A few thousand more of these across the province and we could almost fix the missing middle!

    Hamilton McMaster Graduate Student Residence | 97.9m | 30s | Knightstone | Diamond Schmitt

    Everything about this building feels incomplete. Cheap. Rushed. It really doesn’t interact well with the pedestrian realm. All in all, this ended up being a disappointment. 🤮🤮🤮🤮 Compare Mac’s garbage to the pedestrian realm provided and enhanced by TMU’s Yonge Street Student Ctr...

    Gates were open, got a quick glance at how the street level will feel once complete:

    Hamilton 75 James Condos | 108m | 34s | LIUNA | Graziani + Corazza

    The Hamilton GO Centre was the second choice for a renovated Downtown HSR Terminal, but the City chose to leave it in the windiest tunnel in all of downtown, then stopped taking care of it, then turned the only indoor shelter into a Bus Drivers-only shelter.

    Hamilton Pier 8 Redevelopment | 147m | 45s | Cityzen | Omar Gandhi

    The top of the podium is supposed to be a publicly-accessible observation deck. So, like, will there be a bunch of private security workers watching over everyone? Like on top of Jackson Square? This lot was supposed to be a public asset like a museum or library. Then it became a...

    Hamilton 282 MacNab Street North | ?m | 10s | Lionheart | KNYMH

    Considering West Harbour GO just underwent renovations to limit the amount of publicly-available space, I highly doubt any retail would go in there. ..until DoFo sells off Metrolinx to Buckee’s or Trader Joes. So maybe next year.

    Hamilton Radio Arts | 47.6m | 14s | Canlight | KNYMH

    The City doesn’t seem to be enforcing or even encouraging ‘LRT-supportive’ design in many developments along the line. How did they not enforce the setback bylaw here, but in the east end dozens of deeply-affordable buildings keep getting torn down for this ‘right of way’. For a tram design we...

    Hamilton Pier 8 Redevelopment | 147m | 45s | Cityzen | Omar Gandhi

    Here’s hoping the market dictates a (much) shorter building. Then a total redesign. I’m cool with a delay in this development if it means a better fit for the area. I’m curious how the podium will work? Apparently it’s supposed to be open to the public, but who pays for its maintenance? Condo...

    Great Pics all around!! I’m curious to see what happens with those drainage spouts during a summer storm ..
