CHCH Television Tower

CHCH Television Tower is a 357.5 metre-high guyed TV mast in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada which is the primary transmitter for television station CHCH-TV.

When it was built in 1960, the CHCH Television Tower became the tallest structure in Canada. Only two structures built since then are taller within Canada: the CN Tower in Toronto and the Inco Superstack in Sudbury, Ontario. The CHCH tower ranks eighth in height among the tallest structures in the British-based Commonwealth.

Chateau Royale

Chateau Royale is a stately, multi-storey residential condominium located in downtown Hamilton, Ontario, Canada on James Street South. Standing at 14-stories (70.0 metres) it is the 19th tallest building in the city. A walking distance to the Hamilton GO Transit station, St. Joseph's hospital, James Street Shopping District as well as direct transportation to McMaster University is available.

Chateau Royale opened up for business in 2006 after being transformed from an office tower complex into a condominium complex. Originally the office tower complex was known as the Undermount Office Complex [21]and before the Office Complex this was the site of The Alexandra, a roller rink which opened on Christmas Day 1906. It became a popular entertainment spot that featured skating, dancing and big band music. The roller rink closed down 30 April, 1964 and was torn down soon thereafter. [22]
