I guess I stand corrected, but for sure I thought I saw in one report they were retrofitting an existing warehouse. Hyper optimistic that anyone could build 150,000 sq ft of purpose built space and be operational in 18 months , with nothing but an announcement in hand.

This story mentions the retrofit while they do the longer-term work to plan the Barton-Tiffany site.

But at full build-out, David said he expects 500,000 square feet of stage space at the Barton-Tiffany site alongside residential housing and live-work space for artists.

To start, Aeon plans to "retrofit" an existing factory elsewhere in Hamilton with at least 150,000 square feet of stage space to "get started as quickly as possible," ideally within the year, he said.

...

Building on the Barton-Tiffany block — which has a long industrial history — won't happen quickly. Aeon has yet to begin environmental testing or negotiate a purchase price for the city land.

Nothing will be built at the permanent site without "appropriate community consultations," added co-founder Jeff Anders, who said Aeon has already reached out to the Central Neighbourhood Association.

The city is planning to sell its public works building and yard at 125 Barton St. W. This is right across from the Barton-Tiffany lands the stadium was originally planned to be built upon.

City hopes to sell sprawling Hamilton public works yard on Barton Street West

By Teviah MoroSpectator Reporter
Sat., Oct. 24, 2020

The city hopes to sell a public works yard not far from Hamilton’s evolving west harbour as part of a plan to move operations elsewhere.

This week, councillors directed staff to sell 125 Barton St. W. along with empty parcels on Burlington Street East and an old yard in Flamborough.

The goal is to use the proceeds to buy another property councillors haven’t yet disclosed amid an ongoing effort to shed underutilized public works sites.

“I think we’re trying to modernize and consolidate our public works operations,” Coun. John-Paul Danko told The Spectator.

Since amalgamation, the city’s massive public works department has counted many facilities from the former municipalities in its inventory.

“We’ve never really drawn them all together, so that’s part of what we’re trying to do,” said Danko, who’s chair of the public works committee.

The plan calls for tapping $1.46 million from a capital reserve to make the purchase and replenish it after the property sales.

Councillors discussed the real estate moves in camera during Wednesday’s general issues committee meeting. Their direction to staff needs final approval next week at council.

Once that happens, the newly acquired property will be public, Rom D’Angelo, director of energy, fleet and facilities management, said in an interview.

I think this is the warehouse that houses some very valuable artefacts. The Mayor's throne, old chains of office, etc etc etc.

It's a fairly large site, almost 4.5 acres. Zoned for single family dwellings and duplexes. IMO a prime property for re-development.

I wonder where they're going to end up. I'd love Hamilton to have a civic museum to house stuff like that, but I don't see it being a big attraction to anyone but history nerds like me

That’s been the attitude for like 50 years, before the centennial Dundurn was the civic museum, amongst it’s dozen other uses after the MacNabs and before the modern Museum.

I would absolutely patron that museum. It’s a dream of mine to see one someday
