Workers were out this week painting sections of the facade/entrance of the Sheraton Hotel a dark grey colour.

one can almost imagine they are in a bigger city from that view - I just came back from montreal and the vastness of it in some ways awed me but also made me miss the familiar small city feel of hamilton

Dare I say portions of Hamilton are really starting to come alive now...I think, that the downtown is headed in the right direction, and will soon be occupied by a lot of retirees and young professionals when all of the condo's and other projects go up. It's plazas and l'esplanades like the ones in the photo above that will make the area more walk-able, including at night time.

Scaffolding has gone up in front of Cheapies. Not sure what they're doing, but I hope the facade gets a little love!

I kinda like the dubai feeling going on - where entire areas of the city are being built new all at once.

holy cr*p - I never realized the the old cellar building looks the same as 11 king st e, the one where they coloured the details on the top silver, because it IS the same building! It's connected together in an L shape! I hope they are able to restore that whole building, keep the architectural elements the same, and maybe even add the facade back under those ugly signs that cover the rest of it!

"In one, built in 1915 for Stanley Mills & Co., crews pulled down a dropped ceiling. Turned out there was another false ceiling above that and they knocked it down too. And then they discovered not one but five beautiful domes. This is slated to be a restaurant, so that spectacular ceiling will make for classy space.

Most of the floors above have not been occupied for a couple of generations. By next summer, they will be "contemporary heritage" office space, elevator and all. Watch for two stepped-back floors to be added to the building to the south, which will even out the facade.

And in a deal that closes next month around the corner, Core Urban takes over 11 King East, also a Mills building, erected in 1903. It's tall, narrow, long as a bowling alley and actually once linked up with the Mills building on James.

And it will again, as some walls come down. So there will be several floors of L-shaped offices for rent, 6,000 square feet each, with big windows looking down on both Gore Park and James North."

From that Wilson write-up: "And in a deal that closes next month around the corner, Core Urban takes over 11 King East, also a Mills building, erected in 1903. It's tall, narrow, long as a bowling alley and actually once linked up with the Mills building on James."

But that's referring to The Alley (exterior restored) -- is the interior still a work in progress? Or did Paul actually mean the address just to the east that still has the butt ugly screen?
