From Niagara This Week:

Note: The article includes a nice rendering of the position of the theatre and how it would obstruct the view from the Hilton.

City politicians do not want to see a new theatre built at Fallsview Casino, where a staff report showed the building’s height would obscure views of the Horseshoe Falls from various hotels overlooking the cataract.

On Tuesday, council backed the report from staff, asking it not to support a request from one of four proponents vying to win the bid to build a 5,000-seat theatre in Niagara Falls. The proponent, a Quebec-based consortium, has proposed to build the theatre at Fallsview Casino Resort, which is on land owned by the provincial government.

The proponent is looking to build the theatre over top of the bus area at the rear of Fallsview

From the Niagara Falls Review:

Niagara Falls city council voted against a proposal that would see a 5,000-seat entertainment theatre built above the bus area at the back of Fallsview Casino.

Politicians backed a staff report recommending they don’t support an amendment to the site-specific development agreement, as requested by Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation, which would allow the theatre to go five metres higher than currently permitted.

Both staff and council are concerned the proposal would obstruct views of the falls for nearby hotels.
