With the exception of the Don portlands in Toronto this is the last available land to develop on waterfront in the Golden Horseshoe and on a soon to be expanded Go transit line. I would think that developers would be drooling at this opportunity. The design that has been presented here has a good mix of park land and residential making clean-up costs manageable.

Of course this being Hamilton there are going to be many people telling us not to get our hopes up and that it can't be done. And some of elected officials will likely mess up the opportunity. Hopefully there isn't a group like the TiCats this time to bully smart city planning.

There is so much empty space north of Barton St. in Hamilton that moving this should be very do-able.
