When fully operational, STARTEK will employ almost 700 people at this location.
To help bring more artwork into Hamilton, InsideOut Studio opened in late 2015 on the street level floor of 150 High St. The artwork is beautiful and created from excellent artists!
150 High is also home to Alexander's Market and Deli. It is downtown's first market and is a great asset for downtown residents and workers alike. If you want to have a healthier lifestyle, this is the place to get a bite to eat and/or buy healthy foods.
In October 2015, CORE purchased 135 Main. It was the home of Tom's Cigar store for many years, but the building required significant improvements to the roof that the former owner was unable to make. In May 2016, Fleurish Home purchased the property for their fourth location. They had their grand opening in September 2017.
