Hamilton City Compromise Solution on Gore Park Buildings – two saved (?), two lost

Jan 16th, a compromise with the owner of the King Street East buildings would save the facade of the 1848 Kerr building and the building next to it while allowing the two others at 24 and 28 King Street East to be torn down.  According to a report in Raise the Hammer, the developer also promised to allow the buildings at 18 and 22 King Street East to be designated as heritage buildings. While the solution is better than losing everything, it is far from acceptable.  Without stronger support from the community, the people of Hamilton will continue to lose their history.

This is the official web site of the Save Century Manor Task Force 2 (CMTF2). This task force was created not only to draw attention to the existence of Century Manor, an important Hamilton heritage building in danger of demolition by neglect, but also to provide information on Century Manor and to gain support within and outside our community for our ongoing fight to save and preserve this heritage building through restoration and adaptive reuse.
