Theres so much room in the old playground, not all of that has to be parking.

The frontage on Barton (the gym, presumably without the fence in front) was originally supposed to be commercial space. Wonder if Stinson changed his mind about that too... more reason to be wild about Harry??

If I see Harry at another BIA meeting I'll ask about that. I hope the commercial space is still happening.

I was just in this building last week - that building is HUGE - they are progressing well on it - it's kinda freaky though - on the top floor there are certain areas where you can see through the floor to the floor below - it's literally just beams holding up the floors. Which means that unless they do some serious soundproofing you're gonna be able to hear EVERYTHING around you..

Bingo. I drove by the site the other day and the surrounding areas aren't so appealing for someone to invest 200k+ on a Condo unit. They would've and probably were having a difficult road marketing this area to potential purchasers. Walkability is such a huge factor when purchasers buy in Downtown Hamilton. That area isn't great to walk in.

When I talked to the guy inside he said that it was more for actual studio space - like people wanting to show off their art etc. Some of the studio rooms are really narrow that they are proposing. Some of them ARE full on studio lofts though with bathrooms and kitchens and everything - they had one completed one. A bit too open concept for me personally.

And yeah this is on Barton st - which is a huge deterrent in and of itself. Barton st may never shake the stigma it has gained over the years.

Barton has the best street wall in the city in parts, I would hate for it to go unused much longer..

And a huge amt of those are either vacant or the storefronts have been converted into illegal residences.

This was behind Harry at the school. This was the official thing. I don't trust Harry, just repeating what he told me.

Yeah, this is one of the most unprofessional looking rental inventory lists I've ever seen given out by a developer. There's no letterhead, graphics, it's printed on normal paper... It's just really amateur looking.
