A new era is planned for the old site of the City Motor Hotel.
It’s to become an LRT transit hub, rather than a commercial and condo development.
The derelict building was expropriated by the city back in 2013 after a history of drugs and prostitution.
Ward councillor Sam Merulla says the idea for a condo-commercial development is “no longer practical” with the evolving plans for an east-west light rail transit line that will end at the Queenston traffic circle.
This is part of a larger proposal for LRT development in Hamilton that is slated to be unveiled on May 4.
