The Hamilton Spectator Reports:
New proposal for student housing
By Peter Van Harten
The Hamilton Spectator (Oct 2, 2006) – Things may be looking up for the student-stuffed Ainslie Wood and Westdale neighbourhoods — 12 storeys up. A London, Ont., developer proposes to build a 12-storey student residence on Ewen Road at Main Street West. The proposal is the second major development of student housing on the edges of residential neighbourhoods surrounding McMaster. Councillor Brian McHattie said the project will likely be welcomed by many residents, even though there are “valid concerns” about the height of the 12-storey building to house 560 students.
