Put the required retail on the main floor of the residential buildings. Has anyone been to a Sobey's Express in downtown Toronto? They're open 24 hours a day most days and carry their most popular products. I know so many people who would move downtown just for the convenience of 24 hour grocery shopping downstairs.

Chateau Royale is a dump. The Piggot Building is dark and depressing. City View Terraces on Caroline/Napier looks like every other building in Hamilton. Core Lofts, Margaret Street Lofts and Allenby Lofts are fine examples of what Hamilton needs and wants. There are waiting lists for all three of those buildings.

The City Hall lot would have been ideal, since the city could have stayed in Jackson Square. It would have been a fine use of the empty office/retail space that is only growing. I don't see any of those empty parking lots for sale... The city could of auctioned the site off to the highest developer. Just imagine the tax revenue they would collect from these buildings?
