Delta Secondary School Revitalization



Delta Secondary School, located at 1284 Main Street East, is bounded by Main Street East, Wexford Avenue South, Maple Avenue, and Graham Avenue South in the Delta East neighbourhood in the City of Hamilton.

The property is comprised of a three-storey institutional building, designed in the Collegiate Gothic architectural style by Prack & Prack. Delta was built in 1924 with major renovations and additions which took place in 1950 and 1972 respectively.

The site was previously owned by the Hamilton Wentworth District School Board. Through a public bid process, New Horizon Development Group (NHDG) was the successful bidder of the vacant school site.

Scope of Community Engagement

The purpose of this community consultation process is to provide the opportunity for any interested neighbours to provide feedback and voice their concerns. NHDG is launching a series of community engagement discussions to both inform and consult with community members in order to develop a proposal for 1284 Main Street.

Scope of Community Engagement

The Delta site will continue to hold a strong history within the City of Hamilton. As we work towards a vision for this site, we invite you to share your thoughts with us. We believe it is fundamental to develop and maintain enduring relationships with our neighbours. We have developed the following goals to assist us as we launch our community engagement plan.

  • Consult with interested neighbours, using various methods of engagement;
  • Share information related to the development proposal with the public;
  • Explore opportunities for the remaining materials and/or furniture within the vacant school;
  • Determine overarching themes and key opportunities about the development through communication with the community;


Who Are We Engaging?

The consultation area comprises a radius of approximately 150 metres around the subject site which includes the neighbouring houses adjacent the school. We are proposing this enhanced scope of consultation as it encompasses the residents who will likely be the most interested in the development of this site due to their proximity. This area also includes the prescribed 120 metres around the site for the notice area as outlined in the Planning Act.
