Niagara Falls has quite the impressive skyline for a city of 83,000.. and when you consider it is only the 65th largest city in the Canada its even more impressive.

To be fair, most of the skyline consists of hotels.

But I've always thought the same .

very true, but a skyline is a skyline nonetheless.

Unfortunately the city's streetscapes are pretty awful - akin to Atlantic City or Las Vegas, and there seems to be relatively little thought given to creating a fine city. The tower hotels are impressive in scale, but front the falls and river while simultaneously turning their concrete wall backs on the city. None can be described as fine architecturally.

I could not find the location of this museum in the article, so I'll see if I can find more information. And hopefully we can find out if they are actually going to build that terrible fake ship!

"Experience Titanic" museum coming to Niagara Falls, ON next spring


You're watching Jack and Rose frantically find a way to stay alive as the "unsinkable ship" goes down, and you think, "Oh my gosh. I can't imagine what that would be like."

Well, now you can. A new interactive museum is coming to Niagara Falls, Ontario to give you the opportunity to experience the Titanic the way Jack and Rose did.

According to Global News, the "Experience Titanic" hopes to recreate the experience of sailing on board the ship.

David Van Velzen, who is leading the project, says the museum will have rooms replicated from the 1912 ocean liner, and will go as far as to recreate the experience of the ship hitting the iceberg before it went down, according to the Global News.

Van Velzen also told the Global News the museum will teach the various Canadian connections to the ship - about 130 Canadian passengers on board had ties to southern Ontario between Toronto and Fort Erie. Van Velzen hopes to build those passengers' stories into the museum.

"....I could not find the location of this museum ...."
The location for this museum is the former Memorial Arena, at the corner of Centre St. and Lewis Ave., where the ill-fated Sand Sculpture exibit was. https://www.google.com/maps/@43.0919.../data=!3m1!1e3

It appears that the developer is quite serious, having already obtained the necessary zoning change. They still have to purchase the property from the Russian owners.
It may be a fake boat, but it can't be any worse looking than a crumbling arena, and may actually be successful.

Thanks. I glanced through the article for a physical address only, so I didn't see that mentioned. It will be good to see the tourist district expand to the west a little more.

The new police headquarters is looking snappy!

No buyer’s remorse at police headquarters


It is one of the biggest building projects Niagara’s regional government has undertaken, and despite some early hiccups, the opening of Niagara Regional Police headquarters in Niagara is proceeding relatively smoothly.

The $65-million, taxpayer-funded project — which was under construction for almost three years — opened its doors last September.

Headquarters units then began relocating to the new facility in staged moves that took about two months to complete.

“There have been a few minor issues at the new facility as we transitioned from construction to operations, but nothing we would consider major,” said Marnie Cluckie, Niagara Region’s director of construction, energy and facilities management.

“From my experience with bringing new buildings online, there have been relatively few issues at this site — especially given the size and complexity of this particular facility.”

The 18,900-square-metre, three-storey complex, located off Valley Way in Niagara Falls, replaced two facilities: the Niagara Falls detachment on Morrison Street and police headquarters on James Street in St. Catharines. It was built by Carillion Canada Inc.

Another hotel project in Fallsview! A notable piece of information from the article is that 20 hotel projects have been approved.

Three hotel towers planned for Robinson Street


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.
