The planning agent for The Hi-Rise Development Advisors Inc. and LiUNA 837 posted the planning application package for the two tall building proposal at 43 – 51 King Street East, the former site of the Downtown Hamilton Kresge department store.
The proposal is for two tall buildings of 25 and 34 storeys, with podium ranging from 3 to 6 stories. The podium will serve to house parking, in addition to two below grade levels of parking, and ground level commercial.
The two towers will contain 528 residential units. The Urban Design Brief states the units will be condominiums.
The project is in front of Design Review Panel on Thursday.
