Usually, yes. For instance, a mall only has one address, but each store in it is a suite. Same thing applies for most strip malls that aren't completely parallel to the road.

No, they're all different addresses. O.B. Kitchen next door is 170. WP Garden is 254.

City approval specifically said it was the former fitness centre (Curves) space

The city only recognizes one address for the mall, in this case 166. Canada Post, on the other hand, will often allow you to use suite numbers or individual addresses depending on the location/desire.

Siam
 
Siam has a notice up that they are closed for renovations/expansion. I believe they may be taking over the spot to the north of them, which is the only vacant retail space left on that block of Hamilton, the former Picasso hair studio. Would allow them to expand their patio in the summer too I would guess.

From their Facebook page:
Siam will be closed for renovating and expanding our restaurant starting from Monday 19th of December 2016.
We will re-open on Monday 9th of January 2017.

Caraway Grill
 
Has also expanded, and their new kitchen looks open, which I think means they now have a larger dining area. I assume all the renos are done but not 100% sure on that. Good to see the ethnic dining options doing so well to expand.

Excited about Siam though, such a fantastic place.

Aahahahahahahaha. That's who the Gardikiotis' were holding out for? Priceless.

Lucky Panther is still better than newspaper covered windows.

Caraway and Siam are awesome local establishments. We all must try to patronize them more. You will be rewarded with delicious food. I do not think I have ever ordered off the menu at Siam. I hope to do so in the evening soon.

Honestly that depends on the type of tattoo parlour though.

My complaint is that they have had probably 6 restaurants attempt to take that space, most of which were not even really competitive to their decaying businesses. Hamilton has greatly improved and I hope it continues to do so.

Caraway and Siam are our 2 favorite restaurants in the entire city, great to hear that they are both expanding (they both needed the extra space)

Probably not good news for Shannon’s Pub and Grill. That location seems cursed.

Food is good, vibe is bizarre, decor is poor, and the crowd is incredibly age diverse.

We need more pubs on 13th.

Bizarre is a good word for it. I like it there, but it kinda feels like you're at a house party in a stranger's basement where everyone is pretty friendly, but no one really knows whose party it is.

I do not mean they were poor establishments, the ownership just seems to have issues. I recall some issues with Table 10 ownership.

My understand is that the issue there was a divorce.

Divorce is putting it kindly.
Landlord/tenant/insurance/contractor "disagreement" is likely the best way it can be described.

Though they like the location & the clientele, Table 10 was not sad to leave. Not a bit.
