Construction Progress on 1620 Main St. E. for City Housing Hamilton

Exterior Rendering - 1620 Main St E

New photos showing the ongoing construction of mcCallumSather’s six-storey, 42-unit affordable housing development for City Housing Hamilton.

1620 Main St E is located adjacent to the 55 Queenston Rd site and is CityHousing Hamilton’s first mass timber project. Mass timber uses sustainably harvested wood in cross laminated timber panels for almost the entirety of the structure, including the stairwells and elevator shafts.

Like most of CityHousing Hamilton’s projects this building will be certified under passive house international standards which will make it one of the most energy efficient buildings in all of Hamilton and ensure low operating costs and almost zero greenhouse gas emissions for the life of the building.
