King Street Ghost Town Virtual Tour

Walking down King Street feels like walking through a ghost town. Metrolinx has cancelled the transit project, but remains the owner and landlord of 60 properties, concentrated in Ward 3 on King St E between Wellington and Ottawa. Dozens of houses, apartment buildings, and businesses have been vacated and boarded up. Tenants have been evicted from their homes, children transferred to different schools, people taken away from their friends and social supports. For those who remain, the neighbourhood feels empty, eerie, too quiet – almost like living in the aftermath of a bomb. We feel the loss of our neighbours, displaced to different corners of the city.

As part of our Survey of Displacement for Light Rail Transit (LRT), we took photographs and gathered data on properties planned for purchase and demolition. We worked from the demolition list provided in the 2017 Hamilton LRT Environmental Project Report, but supplemented this by walking the length of the route, photographing each affected property, carefully counting mailboxes and hydro metres, and talking with residents and business owners. The full data set is available in a Google Sheet here and the results of the survey are summarized here.

While our estimates exceed the counts reported by Metrolinx staff, we nevertheless underestimate the true numbers. We know that Metrolinx has altered construction plans in sections of the route and added buildings to their demolition list. (The original demolition list published in 2017 included 56 properties, but as of 2019 Metrolinx said they would need to demolish 90 properties.) We call on Metrolinx to publish an up-to-date list of all properties acquired for the LRT project, with a full accounting of the number of residential and commercial units at each property.

If you are a current or former resident or business owner of one of these properties, please contact us at kingstreettenantsunited@riseup.net. We welcome your input and any information you’d like to add.

Thanks to King Street Tenants United member Taras for these photographs.
