    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Those who want to develop a new entertainment complex attached to Fallsview Casino will be able to make their bids starting this fall, according to Niagara Falls Mayor Jim Diodati.

    Diodati said he was told by Ontario Lottery and Gaming that the provincial Crown corporation plans to open up the request for proposals process for bidders around October or November.

    “I’ve seen some great expressions of interest already,” said Diodati. “I’ve seen some designs, concept plans and architectural renderings — there are going to be some significant proposals.”

    Niagara Falls politicians and tourism officials have been pushing for years for a new 7,000-seat entertainment theatre.

    From the Buffalo News:

    The city whose reputation as a honeymoon capital is often overshadowed by its reputation for urban decay is poised to get its first major downtown development — outside of the Seneca Niagara Casino — in some 30 years.

    City and state officials have confirmed that seven developers submitted proposals for a 38,000-square-foot site at 310 Rainbow Blvd.

    While details of the specific plans were not released, officials said they would like to see a mixed-use building rise on the site to fill the unmet downtown demand for retail, food, beverage, residential and hotel space around the falls.

    From the Buffalo News:

    A deadline to submit proposals to operate boat tours from the Canadian shore below Niagara Falls passed Monday, but the number of bidders and the names of companies that submitted proposals will remain secret for now.

    Niagara Parks Commission Chairwoman Fay Booker said the commission does not plan to release details about the proposals at least until after the commission has made its recommendation for what company should operate the tours.

    “Once we finish the evaluation process, we’ll probably be able to do a bit of a summary report in terms of how many bids came in and who the recommended proponent is,” Booker said.
