If Buffalo has one in the works then Hamilton, a city more then twice as big as Buffalo should get a new sleek tower.

I dunno if that was a crane. Someone told me there was work done on a building for more rooftop units. Grr lol. It was so friggin tall, higher than Landmark Place.

I literally blinked and rubbed my eyes a hundred times before actually believing I saw something taller than Landmark Place lol.

But this rendering only promotes itself as retail/office/industrial and no condo so perhaps there's a different redering out there.

Some interesting sites

Hey Guys
I was walking around Downtown yesterday and noticed a few things that I thought were of interest so I took some pics

These first 2 pictures or the back on a building on the corner of King and Mary taken from the alleyway beside the Century Theater. This building has been having work done over the past little while.




This is the front of the same building, I had seen them working on the trim a few weeks ago at the top which has now been re-painted. Also the window trim on the top floor windows has been painted, it also looks like the trim on the second floor windows along the side facing Mary st have been removed possibly to refurbish and then reinstall and you will notice the man doing some painting. This corner is really coming along.



Now a wide shot to the St Deny's development



And a close up shot of what looks like a crane footing to me as well as a little hut for electical hookups etc for the crane maybe? Not too sure



Enjoy

Good job hamer. But there red x. Perhaps next time just provide the links instead of the picture.

Little work done like that building at the corner of Mary and King goes a long way to improving the downtown. Now they just need to get the Century Theatre redeveloped and one block has been fixed up.

Looks wet at St Deny's lol. I've been so busy with work I haven't taken any updates. Hopefully soon a crane will be rising up, should happen this month.

Fleisher Ridout Partnership Inc., a Toronto-based landscape architecture firm, has been chosen to redesign the main entrance to McMaster's campus after a year-long design competition.

The successful bid by Fleisher Ridout Partnership Inc. was cited by the jury's report as creating a scheme that "creates a strong gateway into the University," as well as lending itself to the surrounding neighbourhood and community.

Described by the jury as "a modern interpretation of Classical models, the clean, strong shapes and repetitive rhythm of the columns organize the architectural forms and spaces along Main Street and reinforce the campus' edge." The sculptural columns are made of Cor-Ten steel and provide lighting at night as well as an artistic element on campus.

McMaster is now working with Brad Fleisher and associates to refine the design for the phase one contract.

The first phase of the design will be implemented in the spring/summer of 2007. Further phases, which will include the landscaped areas around two new buildings at the front of the campus, will be implemented after the buildings are complete.

Hmm this has potential to really amde that stretch along Main St even more attractive then it alrady is since they worked on the road. Even though its not downtown I think progects like this are very important to the city.

Looks exciting

Larry Di Ianni lost the election by 400 votes. The new Mayor of Hamilton is an anti-sprawl candidate Fred Eisenberger.

Airport - open the lines of communication with the GTAA and develop new commercial and industrial employment lands around the airport
Waterfront - wants to redevelopment the CN land area into condos
Downtown renewal - free parking in the downtown core after 5pm weekdays, continue revitalizing the downtown core and create Downtown Renewal Office
Two way Street - no difference

Work is being done to relocate City Hall to City Centre. They're knocking down pieces of the wall and adding new windows.

Think your mom could knock off a few bucks off my parent's property taxes? lol

Well anyways Fred Eisenberger again stressed his case for waterfront redevelopment yesterday and he's going to push for the relocation of the CN land by the western end of the waterfront. Eisenberger would like to see condos and museum built.

Problem is we're looking at possibly $100 million to help CN relocate to Aldershot. Plus after that brownfield cleanup will likely have to happen. So it's an expensive promise. Think Eisenberger will be successful on this promise?

Getting rid of the rail yards would be awesome, but were is the $ going to come from? I think (and I hope its not true) the city is on a one way trip to bankruptcy already...
