Is that the beginnings of a downtown McMaster campus or is there already one in that area?

This is an addition, there's a McMaster medical campus across from City Hall, brand new. This building has McMaster continuing education and the rest is admin space, Procurement, Finance, Accounts Payable, lawyers, etc.

You can see a crane across the steeet, that's for a new student hi rise. So there's definitely a spill over effect happening.

First container house built in Hamilton and it's only day one of construction.

I love it. It's funny how something as simple and kind of ugly like a shipping container can be transformed into something handsome and inviting. I look forward to some pictures when it's completed.

Here's an interesting proposal that was just recently unveiled, the proposal calls for ownership based on raw, unfinished modular units. Once you get the key to your unit you can design it however you wish, more affordable.

I believe this is the first in Canada?

Developer is JvN/d and the architect of the building is OfficeArchitecture out of Toronto.

I wonder how the cost per sq ft will compare to other Hamilton buildings? It seems like the developer would be giving up a lot of revenue from the unit finishings.

This is Portage and Main in Downtown Winnipeg. Pedestrians have been barred from crossing this intersection since the 70's. City council is in the process of funding the dismantling of the concrete barricades to allow pedestrians to access the intersection again as the agreement barring people from crossing the street and forcing them into the underground concourse and mall expires in 2019, after a long 40 years. It's a hotly contested issue most Winnipegers, out of naivety, do not want the intersection open for fear of traffic congestion and pedestrian fatalities. With the anticipation of welcoming back pedestrians, property owners are investing once again at the corner and surrounding area for the first time in over 30 years. A new $160M 42 storey condo tower is under construction with main floor retail, 300 Main has underwent a 30M full facade replacement, an abandoned heritage building is in redevelopment as a new Hyatt Place, a $40M research and innovation centre is under construction a block away, micro apartments with a ground level coffee shop in a renovated heritage building just opened, The concourse under the intersection of 201 Portage underwent a 5M renovation, the Richardsons are in the midst of multi million dollar redevelopment of their plaza, all this and Winnipegers will tell you there is no economic benefit of opening the intersection to pedestrians. There has been alot of progress and momentum over the last 15 years to bring a dead downtown back to life, opening Portage and Main is the next and right step in the evolution of Downtown Winnipeg.

It's frustrating when there is a progressive vision for downtown and the majority oppose it, Winnipeg saw this with the MTS Centre downtown arena and now the NHL jets are back, with the construction of the Esplanade Riel, a pedestrian bridge with a restaurant linking downtown to St. Boniface, now the one of the most popular tourist attractions and with the construction of the Canadian museum of Human Rights, now an internationally praised and top tier Canadian destination.

When I was in Winnipeg, I found that underground concourse terribly confusing. I think I came up three times before I got to where I wanted to be.

Yes it's terrible for visitors and those with disabilities, it's an embarrassment that needs rectifying.
