I received more info tonight on an upcoming meeting about this. Yes, they are challenging the 'innovation district' zoning in an attempt to build a big box complex. I don't know which stores, but it's the same group involved at Clappison Corner, so if anyone knows whats being built out there it might give us some clues. Apparently local groups/associations are already on the ball (as I would expect in this neighbourhood) and are looking to ensure that the innovation district remains what it was intended for - high quality, high paying career jobs. Not anything else. This entire district could have a huge impact on Hamilton's future growth and ability to lure a decent hunk of 'new economy' jobs and employees to the city. We don't want to waste any land in this area on retail that could go anywhere.
