Every space has a story
During its service as the hub for journalism in Hamilton, the building at 115 King Street East also housed a Jewelry store, and the long-time, now gone, Hamilton landmark business, Rainbow Bridal.
Falling into disrepair in the 1990s, and throughout the first decade of the 2000s, 115 King Street East, much like the surrounding down town core, is at last being revitalized. From CoMotion on King and its rooftop patio, to Serve Ping Pong Bar and Lounge on the second floor, 1 UP Games on the ground floor retail space, and, coming soon, a historical installation detailing both the building’s and the Hamilton Spectator’s history in the CoMotion on King ground floor lobby (a partnership between CoMotion on King and the Hamilton Spectator) 115 King Street East is entering its second century with renewed purpose.
Hamilton, with a population of over 500,000 is one of Canada’s major cities and is one of Ontario’s most economically diverse. It is a city of innovators. From its historic steel and textile producers to its current prominence in the health, technology and engineering sectors, Hamilton has numerous organizations, services and facilities that help businesses develop and succeed.
Hamilton’s post-secondary institutions are leaders in the innovation field. Mohawk College features iDeaWORKS, which pairs talented students and faculty with local businesses to validate, develop and commercialize new technologies. McMaster University, one of Canada’s leading research institutions for health sciences and engineering, features The Forge, a campus entrepreneurship initiative and incubator that aims to support and develop students interested in entrepreneurship as a life and career choice, where they can make an impact on society and the world.
Hamilton is a city of many communities, built on community spirit. Physically defined by unique geographical features like the Niagara Escarpment and Hamilton Harbour, the municipality has a broad mix of urban centres and sprawling farmland, offering beautiful sights at every turn. From Flamborough to Stoney Creek and all points in between, the municipality is industrious and culturally diverse. With a wide range of museums, libraries, entertainment venues, recreational facilities, parks and conservations areas, the City of Hamilton offers the perfect place to start a business, raise a family and grow with the community.
Hamilton’s location at the western end of Ontario’s Golden Horseshoe provides businesses with easy access to a network of highways, international rail lines, and the Port of Hamilton. The Queen Elizabeth Way provides easy access to the Greater Toronto Area and local air connections to international destinations are close by with John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport, Lester B. Pearson International Airport in Toronto and Buffalo Niagara International Airport just across the border in New York State.
In 2012 and 2013, Site Selection Magazine based in Atlanta, GA named Hamilton the ‘Top Investment City in Canada’, and the Calgary-based Real Estate Investment Network ranked Hamilton the ‘Top Location For Investment in Ontario’ in 2012 and 2013. Hamilton has also been ranked as a ‘Top North American City’ by FDI Magazine (a publication of the world-famous Financial Times) for its quality of life.
With an educated workforce, stunning natural amenities, and a diverse, resilient economy, Hamilton is a prime choice for future economic opportunity.
