Augusta Street originally between Catharine Street and Ferguson Avenue was known as O'Reilly Street. In 1895 when the TH&B (Toronto, Hamilton and Buffalo Railway) line was built the street was trancated at Walnut Street South. The railway line also cut the Corktown neighbourhood in two. The elevated railway line cuts through Shamrock Park.
Chateau Royale is a multi-story residential condominium located in downtown Hamilton, Ontario, Canada on James Street South near Augusta Street. Standing at 14-stories (70.0 metres) it is the 19th tallest building in the city. It opened 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 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.
This street also plays host to a yearly block party each August, that extends along Augusta from James St. S. to Hughson St. S. From the Augusta Street Block Party website:
