CityHousing Hamilton

1620 Main Street East

Rapid Housing Initiative funding from Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation presented an opportunity to continue CityHousing Hamilton’s mission of building affordable housing that is safe, well-maintained, cost effective and that supports the diverse needs of their communities. 1620 Main Street East is the second phase of the Motor City Hotel site redevelopment, providing much needed affordable housing adjacent to the Queenston Traffic Circle in Hamilton.

The six-storey design is being constructed of mass timber prefabricated panels, systems shown to be erected incredibly quick and adding valuable efficiency to the construction. Once built, this landmark project stands to be one of the first mass-timber passive house multi-residential buildings in North America. Modest in form, 1620 Main St E redefines the possibilities for Affordable Housing in terms of delivery and quality of living for its inhabitants.
