LiUNA breaks ground on mixed-use tower in Hamilton

The Laborers’ International Union of North America (LIUNA) has broken ground for a new mixed-use building in Hamilton, Ontario that will include more than 500 residential units as well as office and cultural space, including the LiUNA Local 837 office.

The development of 75 James Street South will help meet the significantly increased downtown housing needs of people including Millennials from the Toronto market, college students and retirees. The location of the site is consistent and pedestrian friendly with easy access to necessities, work, school and entertainment.

The LiUNA Pension Fund of Central and Eastern Canada (LPFCEC) fully invested in the building, which is to be built in partnership with Fengate Asset Management, The Hi-Rise Group and SG Constructors.

“LiUNA’s presence in our community continues to complement the city’s growth and future development while meeting infrastructure needs including this new residential building with a fully funded investment from LPFCEC,” said Joseph Mancinelli, LPFCEC Chairman, LiUNA International Vice President and Regional Manager for Central and Eastern Canada.

“The visionary 75 James St. South will continue to drive economic growth and development, including commercial, transit and residential infrastructure.”
