Walking, bicycling or driving north on Hamilton's Bay Street, one would certainly have noticed this building located at 268 Bay St. North and thought, that it would be a great loft conversion. Imagine the opportunity of this 6500 plus square foot, Victorian style, double brick building on over 11,500 square foot property. 268 Bay St. North is just a couple of minute walk to beautiful Bayfront Park, The Royal Hamilton Yacht Club, the new Hamilton GO Station (scheduled to open in summer of 2015 ), the trendy James St. North shops, Restaurants, Arts District (famous for it's Art Crawls) and Jackson Square with it's Farmer's Market and Central Library.
Lauded as a gruff industrial city at the Western most tip of Lake Ontario, those of us who live here know better. Hamilton is a city of waterfalls, the Bruce Trail, Canada's 4th highest globally ranked University by the Shanghai Jaio Tong Academic Ranking of World Universities, The Royal Botanical Gardens and a wonderful waterfront trail extending from Princess Point at Coote's Paradise to Bayfront Park at the north end of Bay Street. Hamilton's desirability is not wholly industrial, academic and naturalistic, but is further attractive by its housing affordability and opportunity. Hamilton certainly has it's interesting past and a rich history being settled just post the War of 1812 and has seen many changes since as one of Canada's oldest cities. Contrary to what many may believe, Hamilton has a crime rate lower than the National Average and the City's plans are to move forward to be a great place to live, grow and develop.
268 Bay St. North is within the City's 'Setting Sale' Plan for Urban development and financial incentives and all potential buyers of this property should definitely access the City's web site and perform all due diligence to further appreciate what this property has to offer.
