good point..although I don't think you have to worry about council ever making downtown Hamilton 'the only option'. Yes, there are more signs of life downtown and condo/loft buyers will improve the liveability, but in my opinion the biggest hindrance towards making downtown safe, friendly and liveable is the street/transportation network. Every purchaser at CoreLofts demanded a parking space. Why? Because who the heck wants to walk down Main or Bay or York or King etc....they're one-way highways out of town that kill any hope of pedestrian life in the core....I hate to say it, but all the new lofters downtown will simply add more cars to the streets since council doesn't understand this componenet of urban living. Suburbs are meant for cars, cities are meant for walking, cycling, transit and cars. etc- the 'revamped' Bay Street...what a joke.
