Higher density is the way to go for an infill site so close to the Go Station. The City of Hamilton should be selling this property on the basis of a high (100?) minimum number of unit, with the developer allowed to increase density if the market demands more . Take a look at what is being put up in Burlington near the Go Station off of Fairview near Brant Street, there are 350 units spread over three buildings(A much larger site). Judging by its size compared to the Stuart street property it probably could support more than a 100 units. Given that condos are generally one or two bedroom units, these will cost less than the average home, making them affordable for people commuting to Toronto from the Go Station. The sales revenue on the land could go towards doing non-profit housing where lower density(townhouses or stacked townhouses) can be built at a lower cost than Condo Hi-Rise construction in the suburbs.
