I'm not sure it's a zoning designation. There are several sit-down restaurants below apartments up and down Main St. I happened to stumble across the restriction reading the staff report on this particular building. I'm guessing the developer originally wanted a ground floor cafe/patio and for some reason staff wrote right into the zoning for his property that only take out establishments would be allowed.

I'm amazed at a) how many people want to develop on Main St in central/east Hamilton these days, and
b) how often we throw up red tape or block the developments altogether. (see seniors condos at Main and Balsam)
