Three quick questions...

1. Does Hamilton have the right incentives in place for developers to restore and repurpose heritage buildings? Something seems off if it's more lucrative to raze a building and leave a vacant lot. Developers are in it to make money, and if restoring buildings offers the best returns, that's what they'll do.

2. Are 24 & 28 King a condition that they can be restored. Seems to be conflicting accounts.

3. And is there a long-term plan for downtown that addresses restoring and repurposing heritage buildings? My favourite quote of the week might apply here - "vision without action is a daydream. Action without vision is a nightmare."

Gore Park could be the heart / front porch of downtown Hamilton - the core needs a vibrant public space that brings folks together. My hometown of London, ON has Victoria Park - Hamilton needs something similar.
