West Harbour in Hamilton has 4 development lots of land for sale

Have you ever been to the Clevland Flats? How about Chelsea Piers in New York City? What about Quincey Market in Boston?

Will Pier 4 in Hamilton ever be compared to these iconic waterfront tourist attractions? Who knows, maybe someday.

As an investor, how many times have you said to yourself “If I knew then what I know now”. Well ladies and gentle\men, this may be one of those moments.

The City of Hamilton have put up a FOR SALE sign at their shoreline, well actually a few for sale signs.

It’s a call for investors who share the same ideals as the city when it comes to developing a waterfront. Opportunities are now available to take advantage of opening a bar, restaurant, cafe, waterfront attractions or even hotel within this tourist area.

West Harbour in Hamilton which is located approximately 45 minutes from downtown Toronto has 4 individual blocks that may be sold individually or as a package. The specific zoning by-law is F-S/1641-H.

The city of Hamilton has been compared to Brooklyn NY. Did you miss the “boat” on investing in that borough years ago? Don’t miss this one setting sail in Hamilton.

The city of Hamilton has created a massive plan on how to redevelop this waterfront. These Development blocks are part of the West Harbour Recreational Master Plan (WHRMP).

Acquisition and development plans must address and demonstrate alignment with the WHWRMP and design guidelines. All information is found here on the City of Hamilton website.

Properties are being sold “as is”. Land use will be controlled by the current planning framework an offers will be considered after October 31, 2020

Those looking to submit an offer or require further information, please contact David McCullagh at 905-546-2424 Ext. #1647 or email him at

It seems these unique bay area lands that are up for sale do not need a glitzy marketing campaign. We believe those looking for prized locations to develop may have had their eye on these properties already.

A proposed 45-storey “signature” tower on the city’s waterfront by famed Canadian architect Bruce Kuwabara is now at City Hall in Hamilton. This could be part of the greater plan to create a waterfront revitalization.
