I’ve posted a few pictures of the progress (here, here and here) on the repainting of the Ripley’s Moving Theater building. The other day I noticed that Louis Tussaud’s Waxworks across the street on Victoria Ave has been painted as well. I’m not sure that I’m a fan of the new colour scheme.
As you know, the Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Museum building facade was renovated to look like a building on it’s side. To the far left it looked like pipes and other “underground” things. The other day I noticed that the area has been covered up with a big new banner.
I reported previously about the scaffolding at the front of the Golden Steer restaurant on Centre St. The scaffolding is now gone, and the front facade looks quite nice.
If it isn’t totally done yet, it will be soon. After a few months of renovations to the outside of the restaurant, Antica Pizzeria now has new awnings, and the door has moved to the middle. It looks very nice!
The Golden Steer is located on Centre Street, just up the road from the new Ma Agretto’s building. A week or so ago some scaffolding went up. It looks like they are going to do some work on the front facade.
From the Niagara Falls Review:
The Mascia family knows being competitive in the restaurant industry means staying up-to-date both on the menu and the walls.
So, later this week, the white tarps will come down from the front of the family’s Victoria Ave. business, unveiling a new look for an old restaurant.
The Antica Pizzeria has been around for 22 years, the last 17 under the ownership of John and Dora Mascia. Dora worked at the restaurant for the first five years it was open and then bought it from the previous owners. Today, the couple runs the restaurant along with their four sons. Though it’s an authentic Italian restaurant, Dave Mascia, one of the sons, said the building needed an update. “We’re giving the whole place a face lift. You have to give customers the atmosphere. You don’t have to give them checkered tablecloths to look Italian,” he said.
This picture was taken a few days ago. As you can see, Antica Pizzeria on Victoria Avenue was covered with tarp as they worked on the facade. I’ve posted about the work several times before.
I haven’t been by for a few days, so I’m not sure if the tarp has been removed or not.
UPDATE: I was by yesterday, and some, but not all, of the tarp has been removed.
Things are definitely moving along at the future home of Johnny Pepper’s on Ferry St. The facade looks almost done.
