well if they want the tower to become iconic they should make it look different from other buildings from around the world. Still i really hope this building is built!!!

You do of course know that first photo is Buffalo and not Niagara Fall right?

As for this building. Hideous.. just hideous.

Been to both places. Canadian side looks like it's part of the civilization, and American is just a poor village.

Weird tower. I guess the architect was trying to show off his skills and made it worse. Happens all the time.

edit: generally speaking, Niagara Falls City, Canada, is a great touristy city. It's fun to walk around, go to places, has cafe's, clubs, casinos and all that crap. Really nice place. I guess Torontians go there often, eh? Though I got the impression half of the tourists there were actually from the U.S.

It's not a bad tower, except for the colour in those renderings. Needs to be grey or clear, but that aqua green like that.

Here are some pics of Niagara Fals I took one month ago.

Oh you poor thing.... were you under the impression that Niagara Falls was
set in some remote, protected National Park, with maybe just a few tee-pees
or igloos nearby? That IS a disappointment for you. I'll see what I can do.

I think this project is dead. But on the otherhand, a Weston hotel is being planned next to the skylon tower.
