Westin isn't a Skylon project. It's a CNH project. Here is some more information including a diagram.

The only place I've heard about this Days Inn expansion is here. There is a Days Inn right beside the Hilton so my guess is that is where the expansion would occur.

As for Fort Erie having no developments, a golf course was approved along the Niagara Parkway and for the life of me I cannot find a single article! If anyone comes across it please post it.

P.S. Thanks everyone for keeping this thread going!

Nope it's not the one behind the Hilton, I have allready asked them and they looked at me like I had a third head. So that's what got me thinking about where this proposal came from. Thanks mucciared I knew I saw that article somewhere.

Great to see this thread, hopefully the downtown can be cleaned up and we get a new arena for the OHL.

Hey DailyPlanet, welcome to the board (or at least to posting). Does your name have to do with Superman or the nightclub?

hmm, this Days Inn rendering is quite interesting. Does whomever posted it have a source? It had to have come from somewhere. Mods?

"They always say Hilton/Days Inn expansion why is that?"

The Hilton was previously a days inn (the 8 storey east wing) which is probably why someone confused the 50 storey hilton expansion for a 50 storey days inn

Most of those pictures don't work. Only the Skylon picture shows up.

"This is where you can find the Days Inn expansion, clearly different structures"

since SSP is the only source of the Days INN expansion - it means nothing
(and I've also been following new developments on the city website long before the entry at SSP was made)

could be an older plan for the Hilton expansion or, more likely, a project completed unrelated to Niagara Falls

I totally agree with you Valantino, I think it's a bs development because like you said SSP is the only place it's mentioned. I've had 3 employees of the Hilton confirm that the shovel will hit the ground this fall on the expansion, who knows, "we'll wait and see."

Some observations around town: 1. Does anyone know why the bridge going from the fallsview casino to the skylon tower has been closed due to construction for a year-looks done to me. 2. there is a building beside the greg frewin theatre that looks to be under renovations I think it used to be a bar. 3.the hotel a the top of lundys lane the last tall one which is beige with blue glass is now called niagara falls plaza hotel, dont know what it used to be called. 4. they are doing road work on one of the streets downtown, is this related to the downtown revitalization. thats all I can think of for now. oh yeah I forgot what happened to the outdoor theatre that the casino was supposed to build for the city as part of them getting the contract.

i think Niagara Falls Plaza Hotel name has been around for about a year now - it used to be Park Plaza I believe.

The bar used to be called Mercury Nightclub. I haven't driven past there in a few weeks, but maybe I'll take a look tomorrow.

Land clearing has begun in a fenced off area on Stanley Avenue. Does anyone know what this will be? If I vaguely remember it's going to be a small hotel.

Anyone notice a couple new restaurant openings being Casa Vostro on Clark St. and A Young Garden Restaurant on Stanley. Also a Canyon Creek Chophouse will be opening shortly in the Fallsview Casino as will a Tim Hortons at Table Rock.

From Business First of Buffalo

Falls, Ont., lands $300M complex
Business First of Buffalo
August 11, 2006
by James Fink

http://buffalo.bizjournals.com/buffa...14/story1.html

The company behind Grand Niagara Golf Course is preparing to tee off on a $300 million project that will circle the year-old club in Niagara Falls, Ont.

Grand Niagara Resort Inc. is working with City of Niagara Falls officials on a mixed-use project that ultimately will include a 350-room, boutique-style hotel that features a spa, a 300-unit time-share vacation home complex and 220 bungalow-designed condos. Two man-made lakes, including one that covers 25 acres, also are planned.

I'm assuming this is inland a little? It would be nice to see Niagara Falls developing three-dimensionally.

"Teddy Town is closed" brought my daughter there yesterday and oops, it's empty. I think it's hard to make a go of anything in that location. And for those who crave a sub, Subway will be opening in the outer plaza in the fallsview casino along fallsview blvd. Talked to the city engineering department and they have a few smaller projects coming down the pipe. Dailyplanet asked about the pedestrian bridge across from the Skylon, and they know nothing about it, maybe a safety issue. The preliminary paper work, so to speak, on the Hilton is is in it's first stages. This might be the one project that will see some life this winter. The others, well you never know if anything will get of the ground. And sometimes they just take of like wildfire. I was thinking about what the Sheraton will do with the property they purchased beside them, I would think if they went with another highrise, incorporating the old Loretto Christian Life Centre into the building, then maybe follow the trend of a Hotel/Condo highrise. The reason that I say this is because, the prices in housing in the Niagara region is climbing faster than anywhere in Ontario, which means people working in Toronto are coming here to live. Another hotel is iffy, but more condo towers is a possibillity, I know people will hate the idea but it is just a suggestion.

Those pictures work now.

What year is that old skyline photo from? Did you take it? It looks like it was taken from the riverbed.
