The Labourers’ International Union of North America (LIUNA) has broken ground on  a new residential development in Hamilton.

The LiUNA Pension Fund of Central and Eastern Canada (LPFCEC) is funding the project at 75 James St. S. in partnership with Fengate Asset Management, The Hi-Rise Group and SG Constructors.

The structure will include more than 500  residential units as well as office and heritage space, including the LiUNA Local 837 office, and live/work units, LiUNA said in a statement last Wednesday.

“On behalf of LiUNA, we are incredibly proud to continue addressing the increasingly critical residential needs in Hamilton,” said Joseph Mancinelli, Chair of LPFCEC, LiUNA International vice-president and regional manager for Central and Eastern Canada.

“LiUNA’s footprint in our community continues to compliment the growth and future development of the city while addressing infrastructure needs including this new residential build with a fully funded investment by LPFCEC. The visionary 75 James St. South will continue to further economic growth and development including commercial, transit and residential infrastructure.”

A four storey commercial structure on the site was demolished to make room for the high-rise project.
