    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.

    ‘One of the best years’ for tourism

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    A co-ordinated marketing campaign and hosting a live American talk show helped make for another great tourism season in Niagara Falls.

    “I just talked to one of the major players the other day, and he said he was up 10 per cent last year, and he’s up 10 per cent this year, so that gives you a very good idea,” said Niagara Falls Tourism chairman Wayne Thomson.

    He said the heart of the tourism sector — Fallsview, Victoria Centre and Clifton Hill — was regularly jammed with people during the traditional busy season May 24 to Labour Day.

    “People right from Clifton Hill, right down to Table Rock — people walking up Murray Hill — it was just constantly loaded,” said Thomson.
