    I know this isn’t directly related to the tourism area of Niagara Falls, but if you’ve been to the city more than a couple of times, changes are you ended up at Niagara Square.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    It’s the end of an era at Niagara Square.

    The enclosed area of the Montrose Road mall closed on Sunday, marking the end of the 40-year-old shopping centre.

    When the closure was announced in January, a RioCan Real Estate Investment Trust Co. representative said the company, which owns an interest in the shopping centre, will be making “a significant investment into a redevelopment plan that will transform the enclosed areas of Niagara Square into an updated retail environment with additional parking stalls for shoppers.”

    No timeline has been given for the project.

    The site of the former Snow Park in Niagara Falls is getting new life again. Smokin Joe Anderson scrapped the Snow Park idea and created a Native American themed destination. Now a report in this week’s Business First says he plans to put athletic fields on the site.

    The outdoor rink is now a lacrosse and soccer complex. Anderson is also working with the Niagara County Industrial Development Agency on plans to turn the vacant Tele-Tech building on First Street into a retail complex.

    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.
