"Quite possibly this will increase foot traffic - and hence demand for other shops - in the rest of Jackson Square."

Kind of like what Hart did in Fall 2006 in the City Centre when it opened a 40,000 sq ft store that was a potpourri of retail.

"Wouldn't it be great if more commercial use could be made of the Hamilton Centre too? Perhaps not shopping, but business?"

Yes, shopping has not taken particularly well.

Business is supposed to be forthcoming

"Hamilton City Centre has been sold. The 450,000-square-foot building that houses city offices, commercial space and retailers was purchased for $25 million by a Barrie-area developer through a numbered company. The developer has told city staff he wants to fill the centre, focusing on high-tech and creative industries."
