OK - that must have changed recently. Or perhaps I'm thinking of CP.

With the acquisition of Kansas City Southern, CP will be the continent's (likely) first and only railway which operates in Canada, the States, and Mexico.

I wonder what the significance of this listing might be, but 64 Main St. E was put up for sale 8 days ago. What do you long-time Hamiltonians know about the history of this empty lot? Who do you think might snatch it up?

That's an old Stinson property that failed, then sold to another developer, which recently filed for bankruptcy from my understanding.

It going up for sale is very good news as it likely means a real developer will snatch it up and actually build.

That's the thread for it.

Thanks, Innsertnamehere. The location being so close to the core of the city, leaves one to wonder why oh why. But you said that the time is now ripe in Hamilton for lots like this to be developed. Here's to hoping!

There was a gas station on that site years ago. Contaminated soil added a layer of difficulty and extra cost for development.

But the fact the property was owned by Harry Stinson has been the major source of delay.

There are grants available for these types of developments. See Steel City Video as an example.

Yeah, I was gonna mention that remediation issue as well. I don't think Stinson or the next owner ever got around to actually doing any of that so that'll be an additional headache for the new owner. It's an attractive property in general but that intersection has been kinda cursed for the last few decades so I'm not holding my breath.

Yeah, I'm beginning to believe that has about the same chance as a King st LRT anyway. They also put Connolly and Royal Connaught as "coming soon".
