The Alley by Core Urban

Located on James Street North between Gore Park and King William Street, The Alley by Core Urban is another transformational project in the heart of Canada’s comeback city. This adaptive reuse project is steps from everything, including all major banks, City Hall, both Courthouses, and the Hamilton’s restaurant row.

Offering large suites with soaring ceilings, old-world character and modern amenities, The Alley is the ultimate urban office opportunity.  ​ For more information, please contact Kristel Bulthuis: kristel@coreud.com

Event Summary

Traditionally known for its key role in industrial production, the City of Hamilton has earned itself titles such as the Ambitious City, the Steel City, and

Unstoppable.

More recently, however, Hamilton has been described as Toronto's Brooklyn as the increasingly strong industrial economy

is complemented by demand

from millennials on the hunt for the ideal place to live work and play. With projects like the $360-million, 44,000 square feet, Television Condos mixed-use project containing two 40-story connected buildings on Jackson St. West there’s no doubt that this growth is reflected in Hamilton’s condo market. So who exactly is coming to Hamilton, why, and what are the benefits of doing so? Join our all-star panelists and the team at Bisnow as we get the inside scoop from top tenants, developers, government officials and those behind the renewed growth of an already diversified economy providing options for office and residential tenants! If you are interested in site tours immediately following the event from 10:45 am - 11:00 am, please contact

1) With Hamilton being described as the "greatest urban comeback of all time" what should owners, developers and investors be on the lookout for when it comes to the CRE market outlook?

2) Given Hamilton is shaping up to be a white-hot emerging CRE market, how are the exciting developments in mass transit going to further drive the optimistic horizon for CRE in Hamilton?

3) How much of an impact will renovation projects like the Pier 8 Waterfront Development have on Hamilton's CRE and economic development outlook?

4) Given new construction in Hamilton valued at over $1B and there has been an increase, when can we expect to see Hamilton’s new CRE product come online?

5) As a part of Canada’s Innovation Corridor, Hamilton is located between Toronto and Kitchener-Waterloo.  As this Corridor generates more than 17% of Canada’s GDP, how is Hamilton positioning itself to welcome more entrepreneurs and start-ups?
