    No Comments

    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…

    and

    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…

    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.

    You may have noticed an old house on Robinson St that appears to have a lot of spray paint graffiti on it. This is actually artwork. “Robinson House” is a public aerosol art installation located on Robinson Street at the corner of Fallsview Boulevard. It is a collaboration between the DoubleTree Fallsview Resort & Spa by Hilton Niagara Falls and local artists, in support of the arts in Niagara. DoubleTree is also home to the free public art gallery- Ochre Gallery, located on the lobby level. The small gallery is anchored by a nine foot totem pole carved in cedar. DoubleTree Niagara Falls is a full service 224 room hotel which caters to the travelling public looking for a four star experience at an affordable rate.”
