Gibson Loft Rentals

Have you been looking for a place to live or work that is unique — something just not found in the rental markets today? Maybe you’re an artist with a need for creative space, or someone struggling to see today’s rental options as inspiring or exciting. Most apartments in Hamilton are old and out of date, while condos seem to have the same, cookie-cutter layout and designs. The lack of rental space available in Hamilton also leaves little choice to the thousands of new residents arriving annually. Gibson School Loft Rentals will be unique to the Hamilton market. Prices will be based on raw open space that includes a washroom and modern kitchen. Each unit has its own heating and air conditioning. Exposed brick, large windows and soaring ceiling heights of up to 17 feet will give artists and the like an inspirational environment to create and live.

Background & History

A century ago, Hamilton and Toronto were equivalent cities. Toronto’s Queen Street and Hamilton’s Barton Street were both the primary commercial avenues of their respective cities lined with imposing banks, churches, bustling shops, and restaurants. In the mid-1900s, the industry became mechanized, cars became affordable, generic homes in the suburbs became fashionable, and old urban buildings were abandoned. By the late 1900s, technology became affordable, commuting became stressful and downtown became fashionable again with increased popularity in renovated old buildings. This urban evolution has happened time and time again in cities all across North America.

The Future of Gibson Loft Rentals

Not surprisingly, Stinson started acquiring property in Hamilton years ago. Appropriately, the first Hamilton project was The Stinson School Lofts, the restoration of an 1894 landmark building located on Stinson Street. Occupied in 2013, this project has won both design and heritage awards while transforming the neighborhood into a fashionable address, already doubling local property values. The Gibson Lofts project is a mixed-use complex larger than most, occupying a full city block. The building itself has serious ‘street presence’; a classic “Collegiate Gothic” structure that has been a Hamilton landmark for over a century.

The Area

Things are happening on Barton Street. To the west, a new GO train station has just opened providing direct service to Union Station. To the east, the new Tim Horton’s stadium played host to the Pan Am Games, and will shortly include the CFL Football Museum as well as a major community sports complex. Hamilton’s Centre Mall has had a $100,000,00 makeover, with new ‘big box’ outlets for Walmart, Canadian Tire, Metro Foods, Best Buy, Shoppers, Indigo, Rainbow Cinemas, Royal Bank; corporations that don’t spend a penny without intense market research. Hamilton General Hospital continues to expand, spilling over to adjacent blocks, employing thousands of professionals and service staff working round the clock. Around the corner from Gibson Lofts is the castle-like Cotton Factory; restored as a major arts complex. All up and down Barton Street, properties are being acquired by investors. It’s not uncommon to see former bank buildings renovated into cafés and restaurants. Perhaps most important is the plan for U.S. Steel to sell 800 acres of waterfront property; an event which will transform both Hamilton’s economy and image.
