King & Bay Condos | ? | 2 x 12 fl | Proposed

- Located on the south-east corner of King Street West and Bay Street
- Two 12 storey residential towers (each w/12,000sf footprint)
- 1 storey 40,000sf retail podium
- This will be the second phase of the McMaster Health Campus development


Source


This proposal was included in the McMaster Health Campus proposal from a while ago. I decided to make a thread for it so in the future when the site gets developed this thread can be updated.

Renderings?

Were there any renderings of this proposal? I completely missed reading about this second phase. I'm interested to know more!

All of the information that has been released on this project is on page 52 of this pdf.

No renderings have been released, just the site plan above.

Page 52, of the article states, the following:

Quote:
The second phase of the site's development will focus on the north portion of the property which is more suited to the residential, commercial, or future McMaster initiatives. The critical mass of talent and professionals at the Health Campus also creates opportunities to attract technology-based companies and others who see commercial opportunities within the health field.
It seems as if the idea is to possibly build commercial space which will be used to attract and accommodate companies for the health field once a demand is large enough.

I wasn't sure where to post this so my apologies if this is not the correct thread.

I noticed on the weekend that the lot at King and Bay (next to the AGH and behind new McMaster building) had been dug up. Does anybody know what is going on? Is it related to this proposal, the McMaster building, or is it just a simple re-pave of the parking lot?

They're just repaving and adding better drainage.

The McMaster Health Campus building has only 70 underground parking spaces reserved exclusively for patients.

If there is zero parking for staff of the centre, how realistic is it that the northern half of the lot will be severed with two twelve storey buildings being built instead of it remaining as surface parking?

The city parking lot across from the McMaster site on the west side of Bay St. S. is privately owned but leased by Hamilton Parking Authority in order to provide cheap parking. The cost of the lease is $235,000-$275,000 over the next five years plus the owners are exempt from property taxes and get free underground parking at the Convention Centre.

Maybe they'll toss in a few extra floors of podium parking or something with the towers?

Hamilton should just include public parking in all downtown condos to please everyone's parking fetish. Just like 20-22 George st. That way we get towers, and the suburban people can still drive their cars downtown to work!

That would suck.....it would turn into Chicago. If they maintained a fairly urban downtown than I guess it could try and work, except that parking would be unneeded following a future LRT/ better transit and no new roads.

If it was built then unneeded in the future they could convert podium parking parkades into retail + office podiums fairly easily.

I was thinking of that, with some used as bike parking.

Hey if that's what it'd take for more towers, I'd be all for it!
