The Graham Crawford Show

The Graham Crawford Show was created out of a belief that we need to talk about the issues and opportunities facing Hamilton in a way that generates debate and fosters understanding. The goal of show is to provide smart, progressive talk from regular panelists, subject matter experts, and personal observations. The show is posted weekly and always focuses on issues affecting you and the City of Hamilton. All of the people involved in The Graham Crawford Show do so because they believe that dialogue creates understanding. And the more we understand our city, the better we can all help it to realize its potential. All of the shows are recorded in downtown Hamilton in the studios of QED Media. Let’s talk Hamilton.

This episode of the Graham Crawford Show is all about Adaptive Reuse - the practice of re-imagining heritage buildings and breathing new life into them. Creating familiar, yet updated streetscapes.

Too many developers see an old building as just old. Past its prime. Better destroyed than developed. But some enlightened developers, like our guest Steve Kulakowsky of Core Urban, look at an old building and see history and opportunity. And every great developer knows he or she can’t do it alone and that one of their most important partners is a good architect - like our guest Rick Lintack of Lintack Architects. And every finished adaptive reuse project needs clients who are prepared to buy or to lease space in a building that has some heritage - like our guest James Lefebvre of FirstOntario Credit Union. Between them, they contribute to a very lively discussion about big changes with familiar faces.
