    Hamilton Toronto | The Connolly | 106.07m | 30s | Hue Developments | McCallum Sather

    Elevated interest rates (relative to recent lows, at least) certainly do influence things like financing for condo construction...

    Hamilton Toronto | 75 James Condos | 108m | 34s | LIUNA | Graziani + Corazza

    This building is starting to look pretty prominent on the right-hand side of the skyline as you drive down the 403. (I don't have pics of the view)

    I drove by the area yesterday and, as much as I am excited by the groundbreaking (finally!) and the idea of revitalized entertainment facilities and what they may bring, the area immediately around the arena is looking especially ROUGH. There is a guy on the sidewalk beside Sir John A. school...

    Scotiabank Arena has held the groundbreaking ceremony for the second phase of its $350 million renovation: https://www.sportsnet.ca/nhl/article/renovations-begin-on-torontos-scotiabank-arena-home-of-the-maple-leafs-and-raptors/

    Maybe they don't, and maybe there is no need to share more or even appetite for it, but it is still a city-owned building for civic use and they have taken some pains to stress that this is a true public-private partnership. And they also stated back in September that they would share more...

    Hopefully this HUPEG/OVG team-up yields some amazing results (and it looks like it might), but communication does not seem to be their strong suit, at least to the public. I think I can sympathize with the sports teams that were upset by not knowing what was going on.

    Interesting. The link to the release from the Baltimore CFG Bank Arena OVG renovation groundbreaking is here: https://www.oakviewgroup.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/12/Baltimore-Arena-Groundbreaking.pdf It was very similar in terms of upgrades (exterior facade, concourses, suites, et cetera) and...

    So the Rock are done for the season. Are we in full-on reno mode or what?

    Summary: Downtown Hamilton is in trouble because of vagrancy/drugs... maybe this project can help improve things. The arena is hopefully getting a $280 million renovation that is real and starting very soon. We do not know many details about that renovation or updates to other infrastructure...

    From what I can tell, there is very little info out there...

    I can't speak to the 90s, but downtown Hamilton certainly looks like it has noticeably slid backwards over the past few years. Regardless, it is in a really really bad state today.

    Hamilton Toronto | FirstOntario Centre Renovations | ?m | 4s | OVG | BBB

    There has been really very little news surrounding the whole project recently. With the way that most of downtown Hamilton has been rapidly becoming a vagrant/druggie wasteland recently, it almost feels like the closure/move of that shelter would not make a meaningful difference.

    I wonder if they will be sharing updated renderings or details of the work to be performed. Still a bit nervous about this whole thing.

    Hamilton Toronto | McMaster Graduate Student Residence | 97.9m | 30s | Knightstone | Diamond Schmitt

    I know that this is a tall building, but does it look a bit stumpy to anyone? Especially from an angle like in the above pic...

    Hamilton Toronto | 75 James Condos | 108m | 34s | LIUNA | Graziani + Corazza

    Would be very cool, but man... with the state of downtown Hamilton and the volume of homeless/vagrants/lost people, I am struggling to see who would want to live there.

    Hamilton Toronto | Augusta Block Buildings 2 & 3 | ?m | 8s | Core Urban Inc. | Lintack Architects

    It's more like three blocks, and that is from the western edge of the hospital. In my experience, hospital workers just do not stray very far from home base at all --- their breaks are just too short and they have other options. Re: on the way in or out and the 24 hour thing, I buy that to a...

    Hamilton Toronto | Augusta Block Buildings 2 & 3 | ?m | 8s | Core Urban Inc. | Lintack Architects

    I dunno if it's all that geared to hospital people... it's not exactly right across the street from the hospital. It's a few blocks away, and I don't know if that many people will regularly make the stroll, especially visitors.
