Over 10,000 Sq Ft of Brick & Beam Office space which is perfect for the Entertainment or Creative Services Sector. 

Downtown Hamilton is becoming a destination of choice for a growing list of marketing, digital, creative, planning, finance and technology companies looking for an urban environment at a reasonable cost. 

As more companies look to set up satellite or “hub and spoke” offices catering to employees who may not want long commutes but still access office culture, Hamilton is becoming the spot to look at.

“They are drawn to the beautiful urban architecture to be found, competitive real estate rates, great connectivity, access to talent, terrific quality of life that downtown Hamilton offers, and the distinct neighbourhoods across the city. There is a vibrant urban atmosphere that cannot be found anywhere else in the GTA outside of Toronto,” says Judy Lam, manager of urban renewal with the City of Hamilton.

One unique find in the downtown core is The Writers Block Building (The Old Spectator Building) which is located at 115- King Street in Hamilton (second floor).

Excellent frontage at Hamilton’s downtown city centre, near Gore Park and across from the Royal Connaught condos and hotel. 

“This is an ideal retail flagship location at an affordable rent in a city centre that is rapidly transforming into a higher density residential area,” says Caroline Bouillet, Vice President Retail Services at Lennard Commercial Realty. “Dozens of condo and rental apartment towers are planned for the area and there is exciting restoration and density development among many of the major historic buildings.” says Bouillet.

The Old Spectator building, home to the newspaper for 50 years, is now known as The Writers Block and is home to the co-working and entrepreneurial incubator, CoMotion on King. This is an exciting opportunity to locate in a prestigious historical building surrounded by timeless architecture with access to an incredible transit system which includes access to 2 GO stations.

Hamilton continues to build a strong sense of community for all working downtown as found here in this article.
