Alex Manojlovich’s Weekly Market Report: Exodus of Toronto suburbs driving Hamilton growth

This week witnessed a great volume of deals, even by month-end standards.

This week’s big winner was residential land, plus it’s good to see the office and retail assets continuing to trade at pre-pandemic levels.

Hamilton‘s largest transaction was near the airport for an unaddressed piece of land on the corner of Upper James St. and Twenty Rd. The commercially zoned 61.63 acres sold for $13.6 million ($220,000/acre).

The area’s largest transaction was in Brantford, where 110 acres sold to Primont Homes for $46 million ($414,000/acre). This purchase price suggests further land entitlement may be required. Also of note, Concert Properties purchased two plots of land in Kitchener for prices suggesting high-density development.

In the news: Torontonians are flocking to Hamilton, Council debates affordability for Hamilton’s future film district, and CBRE’s 2022 Q2 Industrial and Office figures are released.
