Hamilton B-Line: Value Planning, Uplift and Capture Study

In 2009-2010 CUI worked with its partners at Infrastructure Ontario and the City of Hamilton to produce a report titled Building Momentum: Made in Hamilton Infrastructure Solutions. The purpose of the report was to assemble, in a single document, a longterm integrated investment strategy to reinvigorate private investment in the City. This study is a continuation of the Building Momentum work and focuses on determining the potential of the east-west (B-Line) LRT to accelerate development along the corridor and advance the city’s investment strategy.
