Compare that to 2010, when Hamilton reported 10 housing starts of any kind in the downtown that year, Norton said in an interview last month."

Wow 2010 isn't that long ago. What's a good assumption for inhabitants per condo? 1.5 people? Assuming that, that's another 9,150 people downtown total in a few years. That's a pretty big change, considering ward 2 is what around 24,000?

This is a great sign. I've long said that with all our surface lots, we could double the population of downtown no problem.
No reason we can't build a vibrant, dynamite urban core....
