US/Canada Border in between Lake Erie and Lake Ontario. These buildings would be on the Canadian side.
I would be whole-heartedly surprised if those towers were ever built.

Lovely proposal! I wish they had been going up when I visited 3 years ago. The city need some new development too. Although they are alittle farther from the falls than everything else because the Sheraton on the Falls and Crowne Plaza Hotels are the farthest away already. But at this height they should offer lovely views for the residence.

@ comet the cat
Niagara Falls is a city on the border of Canada and the US. It is widely known for the 2 famous waterfalls named Horseshoe falls on the Canadian side, and American falls on the American side.

Ironicly that picture there would be very similar to the hotels views.

Also, niagara falls already has 2 buildings over 150m, and is the one of the largest tourist destinations on the planet, as it recieves over 22 million visitors a year.

what an abomination. Hopefully they never get built. It is nice to see the Canadian side doing well but to totally overwhelm one of the natural wonders of the world is not right.

They'd be great for Toronto though.

It seems the pic was taken from the Sheraton on the falls so move a small distance to the left and there is your view.

The would look quite nice in Toronto aswell.

it looks good...

it's funny to see how the Canadian side is cool and dinamic and fun and the US side is almost only a hotel in the middle of nowhere...

I'm surprised the market isn't already oversaturated in Niagra Falls, considering the HUGE number of hotel rooms there.
