    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.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Three high rise hotels could soon be added to the fallsview skyline.

    Canadian Niagara Hotels has applied to the city for a zoning by-law amendment to allow for the development of a 56-storey hotel and two 35-storey hotels on Robinson Street.

    The existing by-law allows for a 30-storey height limit, but taller buildings can be considered if no adverse impacts are created by the development such as shadowing on residential areas and green spaces and encroachments on the view of the falls.

    Currently, the tallest hotel in the city is the 56-storey Hilton Hotel & Suites on Fallsview Boulevard. The nearby Embassy Suites Hotel has 43 storeys.
