Background of the area
The Centennial Neighbourhoods Secondary Plan area was identified as a priority area for Secondary Plan development through the City-wide Secondary Plan Review. The Centennial Neighbourhoods area is a key area in the City, and is recognized as such in the City’s Urban Hamilton Official Plan, which identifies it as a Sub-Regional Node (Schedule E - Urban Structure (PDF, 418 KB).
Sub-Regional Nodes are intended to be areas with a regional retail function that provide a range of housing, jobs, services, and recreation in close proximity to each other. The Node is the only major Node in the easterly portion of the City, and it is the eastern end point for the City’s main transportation corridor, the Main-King-Queenston corridor. The area also serves as a gateway area into the City, linked closely with the Queen Elizabeth Way and the Red Hill Valley Parkway, and includes the new location for a GO Transit bus station and future GO train station. The area provides a commercial function for the City and has been identified as a potential area for future intensification and the development of a mix of uses.
