Patrick Bermingham has big plans for Hamilton’s hospitality industry. Back in February, the former CEO of Bermingham Foundation Solutions purchased two properties directly across Gore Park.
After searching for a suitable tenant for the space, Bermingham and his business partner Malcolm Silver want to turn 62 and 64 King Street East into one breathtaking boutique hotel.
Beverley Hamilton Hotel has been designed by Thier + Curran Architects Inc. and will be an extension of the Beverley Toronto. The plans for the 20-room hotel include a ground-floor restaurant, a rooftop patio and deck, an event space, and a designated exercise room in the basement.
Not only will the space feature exquisite interiors, but it’ll also offer guests an incredible view of the city. The building will look out onto Gore Park and will be tall enough for guests to see all the way out to the harbour.
The owners of the Beverley Hotel are hoping to work with The Other Bird — the restaurant group responsible for Hamilton favourites such as Rapscallion and Odds Bar — to run food, beverages and events.

Both Bermingham and the owners of the Beverley Toronto are excited to get the project off the ground, but such a large-scale project will need city approvals. It’s projected that going through the city’s site-plan approval process could take at least a year, possibly even two.
Bermingham and Silver have invested about $6 million into the project thus far. While some may consider it to be a risk, Bermingham is confident in the rebirth of downtown Hamilton. As Hamilton continues to grow and change, the area around Gore Park will too.
