Residents worry that McMaster’s proposed residence is "too much in one place"

May 3, 2019

McMaster University has submitted its final proposal to the City of Hamilton for an off-campus student residence that would house over 1,300 students. According to the Hamilton Spectator, neighbourhood groups say the 15-storey residence is too large for the proposed site. The Ainslie Wood/Westdale Community Association told the Spectator that it is not opposed to a student residence, but McMaster’s current plan is “too much” for the location. City Councillor Maureen Wilson added that many in the community have been asking McMaster to build new residences for several years. Hamilton Spectator
