I saw MEC transform what was one of the worst parts of Ottawa into a bustling and extremely desireable neighbourhood within the span of 5 years.

Westboro (which was once very similar to downtown Hamilton) is now one of the most sought-after areas to live in ever since MEC moved in. MEC not only brought in customers, but it brought in other small businesses (and the two independent outdoor stores which were already there are still doing brisk business today). Builders are fighting over space to build condos in the area. Transportation to the Westboro area is via the OC Transpo transitway, making the location extremely accessible.

It would be great to see the revitalization effects of MEC on the downtown Hamilton core...
