City of Hamilton green lights 45-storey waterfront tower

Thursday, November 23, 2023

A 45-storey tower has been approved as part of a redevelopment project that will transform Pier 8 in Hamilton, Ontario, into a waterfront community.

Waterfront Shores, the site’s developer, along with Tercot Communities and Cityzen, said its working with the City Council to follow the standards for a net-zero carbon building design.

“As the days come, we will review next steps with the City of Hamilton and work together to see how the project will evolve,”said Joe Valela, founder and principal of Tercot Communities. “For today, we are very excited to receive Council approval for the 45-storey building and celebrate with everyone that has worked diligently to make this approval possible”.

Development plans for Block 16 aim to bring family-sized units, new public spaces and a publicly accessible look-out terrace to Hamilton’s North End. The approval allows for an additional 150 residential units.

Bruce Kuwabara, founder of KPMB Architects, is overseeing the tower’s design, which envisions a “cylindrical and lily-design building” that brings new architecture to the revitalization of the Hamilton Harbour.
