WRCU2 >> Raising the hammer on this board is little more than a hobby.

I actually think that this board is doing quite a bit for downtown Hamilton. Just look at this quote from the Spec link Jason supplied... ( www.thespec.com/News/Business/article/596064 )

"The centre of Hamilton was the big winner, showing an average price of $153,932 during the second quarter, soaring almost 36 per cent from both last year and the $113,150 average reported in the first quarter."

Now compare that to this site's first principles

4) The downtown core is the heart of the city. Without a healthy core, the city as a whole cannot function.

Is a 36% jump in demand for homes a sign of a healthy downtown? The downtown may not be completely healthy yet, but it's making amazing improvement. Therefore, one of the main goals of this site is coming to fruition. I think that's something to be very proud of. I wonder how long it will be before the average downtown property is as high or higher than the suburbs? It may be sooner than we think.
