Let's remember, the best neighbourhoods are mixed use. I personally feel that this applies to commercial as well as residential real estate... meaning, if there aren't grocers and a hardware store, a neighbourhood's a failure.
While I'm thrilled at the changes occurring along James Street North, I'll regret the loss of spots to buy giant cooking pots, fresh fish, or hinges and screws if they occur. And sadly, if this happens, it will likely be because of refugees from areas where it has already occurred (ie. Queen West, etc. et al).
Austin, Portland (et al) cries "Keep us Weird". I say we should strive to "Keep Hamilton Real" and as weird possible!
