Hamilton has some fantastic architecture, and lately I’ve been scrambling to capture some of the finer buildings in the area before the cold weather really hits.
The Herkimer at Bay building is a fine example of a building which was headed down a path of dilapidation until the right developer came along and saw a diamond in the rough. After almost 100 years of use as rental apartments in Hamilton’s Durand Village, the building had seen its fair share of mediocre repairs and unmitigated neglect. In a time when most developers are knocking over historical buildings to make way for skyscrapers, Core Urban Inc‘s Steve Kulakowsky decided this building deserved to be preserved in time and updated tastefully, while maintaining the deliberate intention of integrity and character of the original architect, William Palmer Witton.
I’ve had a few people in the building ask me for prints of this one, so if anyone else is interested in getting in on the order before Monday hit me up at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or, if you would like your own house/building photographed, send me an email with the details.
Now if only it would stop raining every night!
