You’ve likely read about the renaissance that’s happening in Downtown Hamilton. This area is the epicentre of the revival. Over the course of a decade or so, boarded storefronts and empty buildings have become home to unique boutiques, cozy cafes and beautiful adaptive-reuse condos. Especially in the busiest neighbourhoods, the overwhelming vibe is of vibrancy and momentum. Young professionals have flocked to these areas as commercial and residential developers have invested – providing employment opportunities and an exciting urban lifestyle. This area has the bustle of a big city, but maintains a community-feel. It’s an area where you can browse local art galleries, see a game or a show, and have access to local transit and Toronto-bound GO Transit.
