The city now has a shortlist of would-be redevelopers for Pier 8.
Five consortiums of architects and builders will now be asked to submit detailed proposals for the 5.24-hectare waterfront area the city hopes will morph into a new 1,500-unit community with new commercial and institutional space.

Daniels (including Daniels Corp and Core Architects)

Tridel (including Tridel Builders Inc. and architectsAlliance)

Waterfront Shores (including Cityzen Development Corp., Fernbrook Homes Group, GFL Environmental Inc., Greybrook Realty Partners Inc and KPMB Architects)
Welcome to Hamilton. Welcome to Unstoppable. Today I found Hamilton's Amazon bid video. Didn't even know there was a Hamilton forum til now so figured I'll plonk it here. I kinda like it (not so much the music). And I think it's praiseworthy that they're doing it solo. Toronto's bid proposal contains nine other cities seemingly trying to outbid one another, which is kinda weird.
