Discovery Centre Site Strategy Development (Opportunity Study)
The City of Hamilton has begun work to develop a strategy for the Hamilton Waterfront Trust Centre (former Canadian Marine Discovery Centre museum) property and adjacent lands. The strategy for these lands will:
Define a vision for the site; and
Define set of actions to implement the vision
Although these lands are situated in a strategic location within the West Harbour, the former museum building is underutilized. This is the result of several factors including the closure of the museum and subsequent change in property ownership from federal to municipal government, and constraints of applicable zoning by-law regulations in attracting new uses. The changed property ownership and planning context, property use constraints, along with the passage of time since the policy and zoning regulations were originally established, provides an opportunity to re-examine options for the use of the Subject Lands.
Council has directed staff to commence the process to develop a long term strategy for the Subject Lands and has initiated an Opportunity Study.
