Proposed McMaster Main Street West Residence


Arial view of proposed McMaster residence on Main Street West.

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.
