186 Hunter Street East

UrbanSolutions Planning & Land Development Consultants Inc. is the authorized planning consultant acting on behalf of Wellington Hamilton Non-Profit Housing Inc. c/o LiUNA Local 837, the owner of 186 Hunter Street East. The proposal for the subject lands is to develop one (1) 12 storey building containing 104 residential units. In addition, the proposed development development is accommodated by 50 parking spaces contained in an underground parking garage, 51 long-term bicycle parking spaces and 5 short-term bicycle parking spaces. To facilitate this proposal, applications were submitted to the City of Hamilton in December of 2021, to amend the Urban Hamilton Official Plan and the Zoning By-law.

The purpose of this website is to provide interested parties with access to the proposed development application details, supporting studies and access to participate in the planning process.


Prior to submitting planning applications to the City of Hamilton, the development concept participated in the City’s Formal Consultation process. Through this process, it was determined that a Survey, Concept Plan, draft Official Plan and By-laws, Planning Justification Report, Urban Design Report, Cultural Heritage Impact Assessment, Tree Protection/ Management Plan, Record of Site Condition, Grading & Site Servicing Plan, Functional Servicing Report, Water Servicing and Required Fire Flow Report, Noise Impact Study, Wind Study, Transportation Impact Study and Demand Management Report, Parking Analysis Study, Public Consultation Strategy, Watermain Hydraulic Analysis, Storm Drainage Area Plans, Overlook Impact Evaluation, Visual Impact Assessment and a Shadow Study would be required to evaluate the proposal.

These reports have been completed and submitted to the City of Hamilton in support of the proposal and copies of the reports are available for you to review.
