Hamilton is on the right track! Once the gore expansion is complete in front of the Connaught, the whole Gore area will be even livelier than it is now! and it's already really lively and exciting.

Hamilton23, you wouldn't happen to know anything about future plans for the London Taphouse building, would you? Being on the same block and all.

I haven't heard much in a long time.

It would even look nicer once Forge and Foster moves forward with completing that building on the left of your photo. Looking forward to everything moving on up.

Too bad F&F isn't pitching something taller, perhaps some skinny NYC inspired infill. Would have made John St deliciously canyon like & covered up that blank south wall of the Connaught.

I believe that on their end it makes more sense in various aspects to keep the building shell and just simply renovate and finish it. For example, It costs a substantially amount less to go this route.

From a life long Hamiltonians perspective, it's really great to see buildings that stayed vacant and in shambles for years, come back to life. Glad Forge and Foster is behind it too. Getting people back in the core, whether it's for work or to live, shop, go for dinner, etc .. is so vital. I think adding an office with retail in this space is great and accomplishes the job of getting even more people in the core.

I think you have to be a little realistic when you say you were hoping for an NYC-esque infill here. I don't think this project and a lot of other commercial projects in Hamilton are planning to go that route for a little while more. However, I think we're inching closer to seeing more of the types of commercial buildings you mention though. Especially with the amazing roll Hamilton is on right now in many different sectors ( not just developments and real estate)

All in all, I love what they're proposing and wish them all the best. I hope it happens!

Winnipeg is a beautiful city! I hope people come to their senses and revive some of those older gems out there.
