Looking good. This is a wonderful development. We should be pushing for buildings like this- mid-rise, ground-floor commercial- all along King and Main.

Even at 5 floors I noticed that it influences the feel of the street a lot since it's built right up against the sidewalk. We really need more of this all along Main Street. So many under utilized or even empty lots. I already mentioned the one at Main and Ottawa which would be perfect for a 5-10 story building.

I think LRT is gonna change things big time along here.

I agree with davidcappi and matt602: this is just great development, and we need more of this along several streets in the lower city. Development of this scale would be great along Main Street East and West, King, Queen, Dundurn…

I don’t see how you could prefer one 50-story tower dwarfing everything else downtown to ten four- or five-story buildings which go a long way to creating real street walls and healthy street life. This is a great development. The more we see of this, the better.

Agreed. These mid rises are great for this part of town and the other areas you mentioned.

Though a 50 story would be nice sandwiched in between the skyline view of landmark place and the stelco tower. A nice 140/150 metre tower Hamilton could call its new tallest.

Don't see it happening anytime soon though.

Well, there's whatever is happening with the Hammer, but that's (probably) in a different bit of town.

Just got home from taking that photo It's looking good even without the final exterior touches.

We need more construction projects like this in the city. With an overall cost of 9.2 million (which includes suite furnishing) the company built a sustainable Eco-friendly mid-rise for low-income renters ($475 a month for a one bedroom furnished unit) that not only looks nice, unlike some other builds *cough cough* 149 Main West, but actually improved a corner on a major but long blighted intersection.
