Hamilton is Transforming
A revolution in the city’s dynamics powered by $640 million in investments will add to Hamilton’s existing natural attractions, including waterfalls, parks, and conservation areas, ideal spots for canoeing, hiking, or simply relaxing in the outdoors. 1 Jarvis is at the heart of this mix of cherished tradition and bold modernism, immersed in more parks, more bike paths and more people-centred spaces. Come home to a distinct hometown feeling with big-city amenities.
Investment in Digital Infrastructure
A Bell investment of $400 million will be the largest digital infrastructure investment in the city’s history. Approximately 200,000 homes and business locations will be upgraded to data speeds up to 1.5 gigabits per second.
An Exciting Future for the Waterfront
The sweeping water views and relaxing green spaces of Hamilton’s West Harbour will reach all their potential with a $140 million redevelopment project. With more parks, more bike paths, more boardwalks, and more people-centred spaces, the Harbour will be transformed into a vibrant, pedestrian-friendly community. Residents and visitors will have access to the water’s
edge and plenty of space for a variety of activities, from picnicking to roller and ice skating to strolling along the trails. This new lifestyle waterfront will also be home to a vibrant commercial village and a public piazza at the foot of James Street North, a flourishing boulevard full of galleries, stores, and restaurants.
A Historic Investment in Downtown Hamilton
Less than a fifteen-minute walk from 1 Jarvis is the $500 million investment into a new Entertainment Hub and the revitalization of existing venues, namely the FirstOntario Concert Hall, already known for its spectacular acoustics, the FirstOntario Centre, one of North America’s premier entertainment venues, and the Hamilton Convention Centre, one of Canada’s first full-service convention and events facilities.
