McMaster University has purchased the houses on the South side of Traymore and at the South end of Forsyth, forming a full block between Dalewood and Forsyth and across the street from the hospital. The plan is to build two twelve-story towers housing ca. 1,500 students (mostly in first year).
The AWWCA is not opposed to McMaster building a residence of some sort on this land, but the board of directors has objected to the height and the capacity in a letter to the City. We also believe that the University and planners have not thought enough about pedestrian and vehicle traffic around the site.
