The Renew Hamilton Project — an initiative of the Hamilton Chamber of Commerce in cooperation with the City of Hamilton and myriad other partners — today announced the premiere public screening of five video case studies that track the changing face of Hamilton’s urban landscape over time.

The studies are a major component of a multi-year undertaking to document, promote and accelerate the regeneration of downtown Hamilton and adjacent neighbourhoods. They are meant to highlight individuals and organizations advancing renewal projects that range from the adaptive reuse of historic buildings to the revitalization of public spaces — initiatives that are attracting people and investments to the heart of the city.

The event — titled New Beginnings — takes place at the:
Art Gallery of Hamilton in downtown Hamilton
Tuesday April 16 from 7 pm to 9 pm
Tickets are $10
per person and everyone is welcome.

To register, contact Whitney Simmons at 905-522-1151 x 100 or w.simmons@hamiltonchamber.ca.

“These documentary-style videos offer hard evidence of progressive renewal activities now taking place in Hamilton,” said Richard Allen, director of The Renew Hamilton Project. “They reflect the city’s rich capacity for renewal and a growing pent up demand for downtown real estate. Most important, they reveal an authentic, community-based approach to urban renewal that is uniquely Hamilton.” Featured in the videos are leading local developers, urbanists and politicians, as well as national commentators Ken Greenberg, Christopher Hume and Bruce Kuwabara.
