Historic Hamilton address to become condos

Hamilton is undergoing a renaissance as proven by the expanding arts and food scenes in the city and developers are taking notice. Paven Bratch, local restaurateur and founder and managing partner of Metro Partners, is excited about this revitalization and is adding to it with the announcement of the inaugural Metro Partners project, The Pasadena. A Hamilton heritage project built in 1914, Metro Partners are working to revamp this historic residence into a boutique condominium set to open in early 2017. Nestled among tree-lined streets, art galleries and intimate restaurants, The Pasadena features classical early 19th century style with subtle Art Nouveau flourishes like the carefully restored glass front doors and canopy to the moulded plaster beams. The three-storey, 32-unit condo will feature a private rooftop terrace with lounge, dining and outdoor culinary centre. The historic red oak spiral staircase at the entrance is crowned by a large skylight above the atrium while the suites will include polished herringbone wood floors, nine-foot tall ceilings, quartz countertops, smooth porcelain tile, exposed brick and original fireplaces in the living room.
