Hamilton Council OKs 45-storey residential tower at Pier 8
TERCOT/WATERFRONT SHORES - Tercot Communities and Waterfront Shores are development partners on a new Hamilton Pier 8 residential project approved by Hamilton council Nov. 22.

HAMILTON, ONT. – Hamilton City Council has approved a 45-storey tower for Block 16 in the Pier 8 community at Hamilton Harbour.

As part of the council decision, the developer Waterfront Shores will work with the City of Hamilton to develop net-zero carbon building design standards, stated a release.

Conditions of the approval included public art opportunities and new public spaces, including a publicly accessible lookout terrace.

The approved plan, designed by architect Bruce Kuwabara, founder of KPMB Architects, allows for an additional 150 family-sized units.

“This council decision marks a historic day for the great City of Hamilton,” stated Joe Valela, principal of Tercot Communities, partners of Waterfront Shores.

“As the days come, we will review next steps with the City of Hamilton and work together to see how the project will evolve.”

Five councillors voted against the project, with opponent Cameron Kroetch describing the residence as a “luxury waterfront condominium.”

“Not only will this tower encourage above-market prices for housing, it doesn’t deliver on our term of council priorities, and happened without consultation from and with Indigenous communities,” the councillor wrote on social media.
