Pier 8 revitalization project will see the reinvention of the Hamilton waterfront community. It will include new residential, commercial and institutional space on nine development blocks. 1,292 condominium units will spread across 20 separate buildings, with at-grade townhouses located on all 8 residential blocks. Commercial space, themed retail zones for fitness and health and a fresh food market will also be part of the development.
After an intense, year-long competition, the winning team, Waterfront Shores Corporation, led by Cityzen Development Corporation, Fernbrook Homes Group, GFL Environmental Inc., and Greybrook Realty Partners Inc., was selected as the preferred proponent with financial close expected for the fall of 2018.
The proposed development will focus on creating a community hub, public, walkable space, and the possibility of offering Hamilton-based startups working to create intelligent-city and green technologies to use Pier 8 to test out their latest creations. 65 units (5%) will be administered as affordable housing by Habitat for Humanity Hamilton who will ensure continuity of affordability for at least 15 years.
