This week witnessed good transaction levels in Hamilton and Kitchener, with Niagara and Brantford winding down.

This week’s largest transaction took place in Kitchener, where the Waterloo Catholic District School Board purchased land from the Grand River Conservation Authority for approximately $12.7 million.

Also in KitchenerIN8 Developments purchased a downtown parcel for $10.3 million ($17.7 million/acre). IN8 Developments is currently working towards the City Centre Mall development in Hamilton.

In Hamilton, a similar transaction took place as Fengate Asset Management purchased 48 Ferguson Ave. S. for $7.5 million ($16.6 million/acre) for what appears to be a future development site.  A high value that usually represents some approvals have been attained, however, I’m personally unaware of any.

In the news, Hamilton councillors approved Upper James property rezoning, the Hamilton airport cargo business is flourishing, and the Province has removed 7,400 acres from the Greenbelt.

Happy holidays, everyone! The next newsletter will be on January 3. Subscribe today!
