From BuffaloRising.com:

The Hyatt Place hotel at 310 Rainbow Boulevard in Niagara Falls is speeding towards an early 2018 opening. The $35 million project by Hamister Group, LLC broke ground in July 2016. The six-story, 128-room hotel will feature up to 6,600 sq.ft. of meeting and banquet space (including an outdoor patio) on the top floor and 7,000 sq.ft. of retail space along Old Falls Street.

I saw this sign the other day beside the parking lot on Clifton Hill. It is regarding all of the greenspace between that parking lot and Robinson St.

You can see the the details on the City of Niagara Falls website, or here

From the Niagara Falls Review:

The city’s new 5,000-seat theatre will be located next to the Hilton Hotel and be connected to Fallsview Casino by a new enclosed walkway.

Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corp. (OLG) officially announced the site late Thursday, despite work already being done on the property for weeks. The $130 million venue will be directly behind the Hilton, facing Stanley Avenue, and is expected to open in mid-2019.

Construction and maintenance is expected to create more than 800 direct jobs.

Niagara Speedway go-kart track progress update

No Comments

Now that many of the new operations on Clifton Hill/Victoria Avenue are open, I guess the next big thing is going to be the Niagara Speedway go-kart track. There used to be banners up on the fencing that showed that it was a go-kart track, but now it is just blank. I’ve actually had a few people ask me if it was a water slide.

There has been no official word on when it will open, but there still seems to be a lot of work to be done. However, they are still working and making progress. Yesterday I noticed that new red railing was up along the track.
