Council approves application for hotel towers
From the Niagara Falls Review:
City council gave the green light on two, 38-storey and one, 56-storey hotel developments on Robinson Street that represent about $600 million worth of investment.
Canadian Niagara Hotels, the company behind the project, said each tower will cost between $180 million to $200 million, while the team’s agent, Michael Kirkland, told councillors Tuesday night it’s going to provide about 2,000 permanent, full-time jobs.
The three towers will provide more than 1,800 hotel rooms, meeting rooms, retail stores, restaurants, on-site surface parking, and parking garages.
“You’re getting close to what it cost to build the casino way back. You must have real confidence in Niagara Falls,” said Coun. Kim Craitor.
