I'm not replying to myself(!) but I have a more comments...It will be a 'Resort Hotel'. The targeted market is primarily Asian/Indian Tourism. I'm not convinced there's a 'consistent' year 'round market for a project of this size either,- we have 4 seasons in Canada, & 1 of them is winter.Our existing &sizablehotels are not fully booked all year- why would these 2 be different? Granted, the views from the upper floors will be magnificent!, And, at least they're going up at the other end of the City, opposite end to the already congested Fallsview district. Our skyline here, already quite visible for miles both in CA & US, will beunmistakable! If the high end caliber of these buildings picks up downtown Niagara Falls, though, that will be a definite benefit! Hoping for this! Perhaps there will be an upscale condo project to follow, to attract permanent well-off residents too. Our focus in N.Falls IS Tourism,- however Tourism, dependent on so many variables, can be a fickle business!
(one more thing- I don't mean to insult the design, but they are rather plain! Perhaps the wind loads, which are something to contend with anyway, because of the proximity & nature of the Falls themselves,- are dictating the necessity of these elongated shapes?)
