Excellent article!

Particularly telling is the photograph and map of surface car parking lots in downtown Hamilton.

When I took my undergraduate degree at the University of Toronto, downtown Toronto was similar. Today, those have almost all been converted to high-density use. Hamilton can and will do the same, if we have the vision and foresight to make it happen.

A soon-to-be example of property tax uplift is the former James Street Baptist church. As a church, it paid zero property tax. When the condo conversion is over, that property will pay a lot of taxes. And all the municipal infrastructure is already in place.
