Local architects oppose building height restriction rule
from CBC News
A local architect says the city's new rule that high-rise buildings downtown can't be any taller than the Niagara Escarpment is flawed and absurd. Bill Curran of Thier+Curran Architects Inc. in a letter to council is urging councillors to drop the rule when it comes up for ratification at city council tonight. The letter reflects the position of the Hamilton and Burlington Society of Architects, which has argued against the height restriction, saying building heights should be determined by design criteria.
