SouthTown is a diverse commercial area in Hamilton, south of the downtown Central Business District. The area contains a variety of land uses, such as St. Joseph’s Hospital and the Hamilton GO Centre as well as nodes including the restaurants and pubs on Augusta and the retail Terraces on James South. While there are distinct nodes of vibrancy, the district lacks continuity and connectivity between these nodes that would help the area achieve greater prosperity. Civicplan and dp.Ai were retained to develop a district improvement study for the area to articulate a vision concept for the future to help guide development and public investment in order to elevate SouthTown’s success.
This study is currently underway.
