New Vision's research and community consultation has led them to the conclusion that the best use for the property is as purpose-built rental housing in the mid-market range. As Ian wrote:

Our vision for the lands is purpose-built rental housing in the mid-market range. Mid-market rental housing is in a crisis in Hamilton and in Ward 3. The need is significant.

For what it is worth, I agree that we are indeed in a housing crisis in Hamilton and in Ward 3. However, the big money is in conversion to luxury condos. Preservation of the heritage structure is so expensive that it is only possible with a luxury condo conversion. In order to construct purpose-built mid-market rental housing, it is necessary for the building to be demolished. So that is the course of action New Vision is taking.

You appear to be of the opinion that preserving neighbourhood aesthetics is more important than addressing the housing crisis. That is a question of values and priorities. New Vision has different values and priorities. Values and priorities that they try to align with that Jesus guy.

And if you think that my writings are a repetitious tirade, I strongly recommend that you stay far, far away from reading what that Jesus guy said. He ranted on about the same things, over and over and over again on many different occasions. At least I have not called anyone a bunch of snakes.
