208 Bold Street

Paul Wilson wrote an article on Mike and Dave Valavasori (developers of the Allenby School and Dundas District High School lofts) back in Dec. 2014
http://www.thespec.com/living-story/...d-beauty-back/
"Their next project will be easy by comparison, on Bold Street just east of Queen. They've been told the land was once the site of a horse-and-milk-wagon depot. They're approved for 12 storeys, but are going to do a four-storey 19-unit project. "We're not highrise guys," they say."

City of Hamilton Building Permit Search:
15-105725-00 Single Family Dwelling Demolish Sgle. Fam. To demolish a 92.9m² single family dwelling. Closed
16-100231-00 Apartments New Construction sprinkler system to serve the entire building Review
15-114908-00 Apartments New Construction To construct a combustible 4-storey, 1848.8 m², 19 unit apartment building (with basement). Issued

Awesome! Thanks guys. I get a great view of it from my 23rd floor on bold street. That's great to hear.

Does anyone know what this building is supposed to look like when it's completed?

I used to walk past this place all the time when it was an urban jungle surrounding an old little cottage style home. (obviously bulldozed)
To the left of the property was one of those large white painted zoning signs over grown with brush.
I remember it saying application for zoning 6-8 homes. No real picture but a drawing maybe sketched terrace-style boxy-like houses.
Really surprised to see it happening but pleased just the same. It sat that way for a very long time At least five years, even longer.
Great plot to infill.

Walked by last night. Too dim to get a good pic but this is coming along nicely. Very traditionally designed, lots of roof peaks. They've got stone and red brick samples along the front wall which look good. Windows are also mostly in. Really nice little filler. I believe there's a surface lot on the west side but seeing as this building only has like 19 units that feels fine to me.

I'm not sure how they can still get away with a surface parking lot on the frontage. The parking should have been in the back.

the lot is more to the side of the building rather than in front of it. Part of the building fronts pretty close to the sidewalk. My guess is it will be landscaped nicely as this is a smaller boutique condo project.

Wow! I'm really impressed with this project! It looks like a great fit for the neighbourhood, and use of more traditional materials sounds amazing.

it looks ok so far but I stand by my last comment. Why on earth wouldn't they make them turn it to face the street with the parking in the back? Heck even an L shape with less parking would make me happier. Sure, Bold is pretty much destroyed east of Queen from those apartment buildings, but why keep up the status quo? If this were 50 metres west it would be a travesty.
