Re­vamp for Hamil­ton East site

Hamilton Metro News - - BUSINESS -

KGL Prop­erty has re­vealed its plans for a $6 mil­lion re­fur­bish­ment of the 1970s-built 1 Clyde St in Hamil­ton East to start mid-2018.

Ren­o­va­tions will cre­ate what is thought to be the largest mod­ern, shared of­fice space in Hamil­ton. The sale of the prop­erty to KGL Prop­erty was an­nounced in May 2016 when for­mer owner and ten­ant Hill Lab­o­ra­to­ries an­nounced it would move to their new head­quar­ters on Duke St. With all Hill Lab­o­ra­to­ries staff now out of the build­ing, the ren­o­va­tions can be­gin.

Hamil­ton-based KGL Prop­erty, owned by Tor­pedo7 founder Luke Howard-Wil­lis and his fa­ther Guy, created a joint ven­ture with Foster Con­struc­tion Ltd and the part­ners will work to­gether on the pro­ject.

“The build­ing’s main struc­ture will stay as is, but we’ll strip it right down to the con­crete and re­clad it with mod­ern con­struc­tion ma­te­ri­als. In ad­di­tion to a new mod­ern look inside, we’ll also in­stall new me­chan­i­cal and elec­tri­cal kit through the build­ing,” says Foster’s com­mer­cial man­ager Leonard Gard­ner. “The in­ter­nal and ex­ter­nal facelift will also keep in char­ac­ter with Hamil­ton East’s unique com­mu­nity and the sur­round­ing build­ings.”

KGL com­mer­cial prop­erty man­ager Ray George says, “Hamil­ton East has been re­vi­talised over the past few years, mak­ing it the per­fect lo­ca­tion to host a shared of­fice space.”
