September is a BIG Month in Hamilton
September came in like a lion for the City of Hamilton! Not only did Navistar announce their intent to construct a new 250,000 square foot auto parts distribution centre in the Red Hill Business Park but Site Selection Magazine out of Atlanta, GA ranked Hamilton as the top investment city in Canada. This is truly exciting news and an even more exciting time to be investing in Hamilton. There is some real momentum in the economy and it is great to see a number of projects both big and small starting to happen in Hamilton.
Even more good news, Hamilton’s industrial vacancy rate is now sitting at 2.3% and the industrial permits to as of the end of August is now at $148.9 million, a record for Hamilton and the year isn’t even over yet!
But, it’s not all about hard economic numbers, there is fun to be had in Hamilton too – especially the downtown. This weekend Hamilton once again is home to Supercrawl- a showcase of great Hamilton and Canadian music that will bring over 50,000 people to the James Street North Arts District (www.supercrawl.ca). C’mon downtown and see the great creative industries that are growing in the core.
With so many great things are happening here, why not be part of the happening?
