We're not short on living spaces. We've got enough real estate speculators and flippers in this city, and they've done a number. For those that have been watching lately, our housing bubble is pretty much at the top. This condo would be a nail in the coffin of Hamilton.

We need something that will provide productive jobs. Either something that requires high engineering talent, low-skills labor, or some mix of both. Even a grocery store wouldn't be bad. We need space to buy food downtown. (Please don't mention the farmer's market. People aren't really that stoked about it regardless of bright colors.)

Pretty living spaces are an indicator, not a cause, of success. Look how well our spattering of stucco helped our downtown core. It didn't!
