From the Niagara Falls Review:

The new 5,000-seat entertainment centre will be a catalyst for more development, and begin to position Niagara Falls as the “entertainment capital of Canada,” says Joe Dicosimo, president of Hospitality Resorts Inc., partner of Niagara Falls Entertainment Partners.

“With the world-famous falls behind us, known all over the world, the convention centre, all the great attractions that we built up over the years, this is the missing link,” he said during a groundbreaking ceremony Wednesday.

“We’re positioned now, working together, to become the entertainment capital of Canada.”

From the Niagara Falls Review:

Mississauga company Bird Construction is part of the consortium which will build a 5,000-seat entertainment centre in Niagara Falls.

The company is among principals known as Niagara Falls Entertainment Partners, which beat out four other conglomerates for the right to design, build and maintain the facility.

The winning bidder was announced by Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corp. late Tuesday.

The theatre is expected to replace the 1,500-seat Avalon Ballroom at Niagara Fallsview Casino Resort, which has been limited by its size virtually from the day it opened in 2004.

By comparison, the new theatre will be equal in size to the 5,000-seat Colosseum at Caesars Windsor, and will double the 2,500-seat Events Center at Seneca Niagara Casino.

It’s now known who will be responsible for building a new entertainment centre in Niagara Falls.

The OLG announced early Tuesday evening that the contract to build a 5,000-seat venue has been awarded to Niagara Falls Entertainment Partners, a consortium that includes Bird Construction Inc. of Mississauga.

The consortium will build and maintain the new facility.

In a news release, Bird said it will “perform the design and construction of the project and will also, through Bird Capital, a wholly owned subsidiary, take a minority equity interest in the concession responsible for the overall project, including design, construction, financing, and maintenance.”

The facility will feature a performance space with multiple stage configurations, a public lobby and gathering spaces, box offices, bar and concessions.
