Emblem Purchases Third Downtown Development Site

This week saw an average amount of transactions, with Brantford noticeably slow during August and September.

The most significant transaction for the second consecutive week was a high-density residential land sale in HamiltonEmblem Developments has purchased its third site in the city, 100 John St. N. and 61 Wilson St. — currently the site of an office and a retail building — for $8 million (approximately $13.8 million/acre). It’s slightly above market value, but this valuation could signify things to come with increasing condo unit values.

In the second largest transaction of the week, NorthWest Healthcare Properties REIT sold a medical office building for $294/sq. ft in Hamilton‘s east end.
