20171030 Letters to the Editor

The other day the Letters to the Editor section of the Niagara Falls Review had a couple of letters related to the 3 hotels approved for Canadian Niagara Hotels.

I read with interest the decision of Niagara Falls city council to approve applications to build three new hotel complexes on Robinson Street.

It’s interesting to point out that not one comment was made on how the City of Niagara Falls will handle all the new traffic chaos that will ensue with these three hotels in the busiest, most traffic-congested areas of the Falls…

iagara Falls city council has again pushed past another existing zoning bylaw. They gave the green light to three hotel ‘developments’ on Robinson Street — one eight storeys above the height limit and the other an excessive 26 storeys higher…

Another in my series on keycards

The other day I found this keycard for a Days Inn hotel. It is a generic card, so I don’t know if this is for the Days Inn Near the Falls or the Days Inn Niagara Falls Clifton Hill Casino.

Council approves application for hotel towers

No Comments

From the Niagara Falls Review:

City council gave the green light on two, 38-storey and one, 56-storey hotel developments on Robinson Street that represent about $600 million worth of investment.

Canadian Niagara Hotels, the company behind the project, said each tower will cost between $180 million to $200 million, while the team’s agent, Michael Kirkland, told councillors Tuesday night it’s going to provide about 2,000 permanent, full-time jobs.

The three towers will provide more than 1,800 hotel rooms, meeting rooms, retail stores, restaurants, on-site surface parking, and parking garages.

“You’re getting close to what it cost to build the casino way back. You must have real confidence in Niagara Falls,” said Coun. Kim Craitor.

Three hotel towers planned for Robinson Street

I posted about the public notice sign a few weeks ago

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.

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.

The $205 million Falls hotel that no one wants to talk about

No Comments

From the Buffalo News:

Niagara Falls Redevelopment has submitted a plan for a $205 million hotel in downtown Niagara Falls.

Normally, city officials said, such a large project would be announced with plenty of hype. But in this case, the plans were simply dropped off at the city planning office on a Friday afternoon.

“Usually, when somebody proposes a $200 million anything, there’s a lot of fanfare,” city Planning Director Thomas DeSantis said. “Read into that what you will. It’s odd. It’s clearly unconventional.”
