The former HWDSB Mountain Secondary School property at 60 Caledon Avenue (Yeoville between Upper James and West 5th south of Mohawk) is scheduled for family friendly redevelopment.

This article contains details of the City of Hamilton’s intentions for the site, its sale and next steps.

Hello Ward 8 Neighbours,

In 2017/2018 the City of Hamilton purchased the former Mountain Secondary School property (60 Caledon Avenue) from the Hamilton Wentworth District School Board (HWDSB) with the intention of developing new mixed income housing on the Hamilton Mountain.

In December of 2020 the City closed a real estate transaction with Hamilton East Kiwanis Non-Profit Homes and Victoria Park Community Homes, who have come together to form a limited partnership called Caledon Community Collaborative for this project.

This post will provide a timeline of events, and what the next steps are for the mixed-income family redevelopment.
