McMaster University is coming to James Street North with a 2,500 square feet business incubator focused on “digital media and information communication technology, tourism and culture, education and life sciences and advanced health.”
City Council is expected to ratify a $25,000 “forgivable loan” to McMaster University to assist with leasehold improvements for the new office located at 109 James Street North.
The building at 109 James North is owned by Mark Milne and Tim Potocic of Sonic Unyon fame and most recently housed Haji Grocery.
Milne and Potocic own five street addresses on the block and are nearing completion of extensive renovation and additions to the upper floors of three of the buildings.
