The City is carrying out an update to the Pier 7+8 Urban Design Study (2016) for lands identified as Block 16 on Pier 8 (PDF, 556 KB) in Hamilton’s West Harbour.

The purpose of the study is to develop urban design guidelines for mid-rise and high-rise development on Block 16.

The study is a result of a Local Planning Appeal Tribunal settlement decision regarding Case No. PL170742 (PDF, 1 MB) , which directs the City to bring forward, for Council’s consideration, an amendment to the Setting Sail Secondary Plan and an implementing zoning by-law amendment that would re-designate the existing institutional block (Block 16) to permit residential or mixed use in a mid-rise or high-rise form.
