88 James Demolition


“Progress is impossible without change …” – George Bernard Shaw – The former Gord’s Place building on James Street in Downtown Catharines has been demolished to make way for 88 James: a 30-story commercial-residential project. When completed, the building will be the tallest tower in St. Catharines.

St. Catharines’ population is expected to grow to more than 165,000 by 2041. As the only Urban Growth Centre in Niagara, Downtown St. Catharines benefits from planning policies designed to increase population density.
