This is certainly a model of small scale infill I wouldn't mind seeing more of in Hamilton.

Scale is decent, but it looks a little rustic for my taste.

Some of the area residents were strongly opposed to this.

There was a homemade lawn sign that said "1 LOT, 1 HOUSE".
I wish I had taken a photo. It captured the sense of ignorance to the benefits of increased density that we need so desperately. I'm afraid the fear and lack of understanding still exists.

If someone lived right behind this construction and the extra height (3rd story) completely blocked their view of Bayfront park then I could sympathize with them. No one likes NIMBYism, but it sucks if the BY is your actual backyard!

As for everyone else in the neighbourhood though, in my opinion this development looks to be of high quality, seems luxurious, and should only help boost an outsiders perception of the neighbourhood.

The style is indeed a bit rustic, but I dig the bold colour choices with the navy siding and blue brick and crisp white trim.

The colours really look good - especially with the building being so close to the water

That is one house. How is it any different than any other large houses broken up into multiple units other than that it's new and high end? The tenants probably won't pile up garbage or park junk cars on the lot.

About 300,000. I found the original design; I'd say what we got is a major upgrade ahah.

Yes but it's positive development that is slowly revitalizing the core. This forum would be boring if we only talked about the few tall buildings being built in Hamilton.

But it fits its setting -- a low-rise residential neighbourhood largely made up of detached homes, semis, and row housing.
