Height restrictions were one of the items (along with parking requirements) that developers themselves cited as a barrier to building in downtown Hamilton during the LRT B-line development consultation process.

I think I know why they were proposed, with the thinking being that by limiting height would result in two six story buildings instead of an empty lot next to a twenty story tower that is half empty (yeah, that clearly didn't work out as they planned).

In any event, whatever the rationale was, we need to revisit these height restrictions and determine what the rationale is for them now, whether or not they're achieving that objective, and proceed accordingly.
