I posted a couple of weeks ago about the house on Stanley Avenue by the Macs (near the corner of Ferry Street) that was torn down. It is a very large lot, that I assume will sit empty for quite a while.
This building on Ferry St was the former location of Johnny Peppers restaurant. There was a fire several years ago and half the building was destroyed. There was a for sale sign on the lot for a long time, and then yesterday I noticed that it was being demolished.
The Niagara Falls Review also has an article about it.
I don’t have any details for you, but here are some photos from the Niagara Speedway construction area. It looks like the buildings/structures are mostly done, and they are starting to work on the concrete at the track.
Back in June I posted about the new attraction that is going in where Brick City was located. As you may recall, that building was torn down and it is an empty lot right now. The lot is fenced off and there are signs up showing the name of the attraction and that it is opening soon. Well, here we are at the end of the summer, and nothing has been done yet.
I was surprised to see that they’ve even had leaflets available talking about the new attraction. I would assume it will be open for next year, but only time will tell.
You can download a PDF of the Big Top leaflet as well.
The new building that is going up at the corner of Ellen Ave and Centre St (former Ma Agretto’s building) has some nice stone work on the front now.
Overall, the building seems to be progressing quite slowly. I wonder how long it will be before it is open.
The building at the corner of Centre St and Ellen Ave where Ma Agretto’s used to be is coming along. The foundation/basement and ground floor are there, and they are working on the second floor.
I meant to post a picture a few weeks ago, but kept forgetting. As you will recall, Jack’s Cantina burned down more than a month ago. The remains of the building were left for a couple of weeks, and then a few weeks ago the building was removed and the property cleaned up. Now it is just an empty lot.
From the Niagara Falls Review:
A small citizens’ group and a church in historic Queenston Village fought the town, Whirlpool Jet Boat Tour Co. and the Niagara Escarpment Commission — and won.
A hearing before the Ontario Environmental Review Panel, which began in March 2009, ended in a victory recently for the Queenston Residents Association and St. Saviour Brock Memorial Church. They were successful in preventing the jet-boat company from receiving a permit from the escarpment commission to construct a two-storey building at the Queenston dock.
