Piers 6, 7 and 8 Urban Design Brief

City of Hamilton

SGL Planning & Design Inc. was retained by the City of Hamilton to develop an Urban Design Brief regarding the proposed development of Hamilton Harbour. SGL was responsible for preparing an urban design brief outlining existing conditions, and proposed site design.

SGL was subsequently retained to test future development built form performance based on the proposed Zoning By-law and previously determined residential and commercial yields expectations based on the proposed zoning requirements. Results of the block testing assisted city staff in determining if proposed zoning regulations applied to the Hamilton Harbour are appropriate to allow the intended density of the future development.
