Revised proposal for Building in Hamilton's Corktown Area

12 September 2023 | Hamilton, Canada

The Corktown neighborhood in Hamilton is experiencing a surge in proposals for high-rise buildings that promise to transform the city. Recently a revised design for a mixed-use building that is planned to be 30 stories high, located at 46 and 48 Ferguson Avenue South. The building is well-positioned, within 1640 feet (500 meters) of the Hamilton GO Centre to the west and within walking distance of two stops on the upcoming Hamilton LRT. The rectangular parcel is surrounded by a variety of properties, including commercial, office, residential, and mixed-use. Graziani + Corazza Architects designed the development for The Hi-Rise Group in collaboration with Fengate Properties.

The building is expected to be around 325 feet (99.1 meters) tall and will include 402 residential units. The building will be built on top of a three-story podium, which will include parking, retail, and office spaces, as well as amenity areas. The development plans to provide a total of 271 vehicle parking spaces within the podium, as well as four levels of underground garage. To encourage sustainable transportation, 198 bicycle parking spaces will be provided across various parking levels in long-term bicycle storage lockers. The development will feature three elevators, resulting in one elevator for every 134 units, which may result in longer wait times. The outdoor terrace amenity spaces will be located on the fourth level of the podium and the 14th level of the 13-story portion of the building. Nearby developments include the 39-story 117 Jackson Street East, the 27-story 101 Hunter Street East, and The Moderne, the 35-story third phase of the Residences at Royal Connaught. The development application was recently reviewed by Hamilton's Design Review Panel on August 17, 2023.
