    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.

    From the Buffalo News:

    The Niagara Falls skyline in New York will soon look a little more like the Niagara Falls skyline in Canada.

    The Seneca Gaming Corp. on Monday announced it is building a billboard-sized video screen atop its Niagara Falls casino.

    Like its competitors across the Niagara River, the Seneca casino by month’s end will display the word “CASINO” from atop its 26-story tower.

    But unlike the Canadian gambling halls, the LED screen on the hotel tower will also be able to flash promotions or display live video like a giant television.

    From a PRNewswire press release seen on Yahoo! Finance:

    The Hilton Hotel & Suites began its transformation to become the tallest hotel tower in Canada in January 2007. Now the largest resort in Niagara Falls, it boasts over 1,000 hotel rooms and suites, including two spectacular Presidential Suites on the 52nd Floor. Each elegantly appointed 2-bedroom suite features a sitting room with a fireplace, magnificent city or falls views and wireless technology.

    The piece goes on to talk about the restaurants. I’d love to try them!

    Niagara Falls in Summer 2009 (pictures and video)

    The weather on the 4th of July this year was awesome. The sky was blue and the temperature was in the mid 20°s C (around 70° F), so I went out and took some pictures and a video. The pictures were taken with my regular camera, but the video was taken with a new small HD camera that I “inherited” from one of my sisters. I’ve embedded the video below, but you may want to click through to YouTube and view the HD version.

    As always, you can view the thumbnails below, or view the full images in the Niagara Falls in Summer 2009 gallery.

    Here is the HD video from that day:
