Honestly, he pushes the occupancy date back 6 months every 6 months-or-so. I'm in this hood (ironically called Stinson, which the school is named after -NOT Harry!) pretty often, and construction moves at a snail's-pace, if at all.
Well, buyers may be able to get in 'this May' this weekend (May 4th & 5th)!!"One deadline after another gets missed, but Harry tells me now that all 66 [Stinson School Loft] suites will be ready to go this May."

Disclaimer: no one in Hamilton takes this fool seriously either.
I hope you don't think we do. We have all given up hope on Harry, from Politiians to regular Joe's to developers.
I have a feeling once the School lofts are complete (ha!) Harry will cancel the 'Hamilton Grand' plans and abandon ship.
He admits Hamilton has no faith in him, so why wouldn't he leave.
He went through 3 different architects for this project!! No wonder it's over 2 years past it's Sep 2011 move-in date!
What a fool!
My most-accomplished development to date is the abolishment of the misconception(s) people have on Hamilton (including Hamiltonians themselves).You will have to show me one of your developments one day. It's easy, even a fool can do it.

I have done so, mostly, by word-of-mouth but also through this site and SSP Local Hamilton. The most effective way, however, is to take people on a walking-tour of our Downtown from the base of the Niagara Escarpment to the edge of Burlington Bay.
You can tell my - and many many others NOT including Harry Stinson - hard work has paid off as suggested in this recent article by Christopher Hume:
Harry did nothing but come into town at the right time in order to buy at the right (below-market value) price. He has failed to materialize any of his other Hamilton projects besides this one (maybe, not yet), which is years behind schedule BTW!
Harry is now publicly dissing Hamiltonians saying we are the wrong people to market Real Estate to, despite stats showing that Hamiltonians are in fact buying more real estate w/in our own city than non-Hamiltonians (CBC Hamilton reported this, though I can't find a link to the article).
Either way, Harry Stinson has done little-to-nothing for Hamilton (besides criticize it at every opportunity, blaming us for his recent woes). If he didn't buy Stinson School, someone else would have and finished the project much sooner!
