I'd be happy with these guys in Hamilton going from shite to ho-hum...maybe the odd one, like CoreLofts (they made a bundle on that, so save me your speech about how guys won't spend the extra few bucks in Hamilton because it's a poor town etc....) could actually go up to nice. Turned out well for them (CoreLofts) and for the city.
Is that too much to ask??
Spare me your speaches or should I say diatribes on peak oil, poor transit, Harry Stinson, ugly design, the Mafia and LIUNA, Stucco Sucks, roads and cars suck, Hamilton Developers Suck, Aerotropolis and Hamilton Airport sucks, Big Box Sucks, all cities suck (except Buffalo and Portland), Toronto developers are great, Socialism will save us all, and all the other useless tripe you drone on about on a daily basis.
