These buildings really do define 'taste' in the sense some will love them and others will rather live in hell. I'm not too sure but if anything, a colour change from that bronze might do some good.

The bronze colour is its best feature. In Niagara Falls, kitsch and garish is preferable to boring minimalist. The last thing they want to do is bore people to death. They need to go with underground parking though.

I agree that the colour is great, I love the bronze on this.

I think the surface lot is fine for parking, and from some of the renderings it looks like there's ramps leading to underground parking structures. So I would guess that there would be substantial underground parking constructed in addition to a comparatively small surface lot.

Hotel development at Loretto to include restoring historic Niagara Falls building

Quote:
The past met the future on one of the most historic sites in Niagara Falls Sunday.

About 20 graduates from the 1969 Loretto Academy class came together to celebrate their 50th reunion.

They also heard from representatives of 3Bridges Properties (Group) Corp., a Vancouver-based development company with plans to transform the 2.96-hectare (7.4-acre) property on Stanley Avenue into a luxury hotel and limited-edition residences.

The heart of the project, which 3Bridges Properties chief executive officer Dan Zhang said will be worth $1 billion, will incorporate the existing Loretto Academy building with its mansard roof and cupola. These architectural elements will be retained, conserved and restored into its river-facing facade.

He said the plan is to restore the roof that was destroyed by fire in 1938.

"Because this building has a lot of history, we will retain it and restore it. It's such a historic building that we want to make sure … it really remains a landmark as part of our vision for this whole property."

A 32-storey south tower, 57-storey central tower and 42-storey north tower will include a luxury hotel with "world-class amenities" and condominium residences above.

Zhang said 3Bridges plans to retain an architect with global experience and a Canadian contractor.

The project is still in design phase, so a construction start date has not been determined.

The development will be 3Bridges' first venture outside British Columbia. The company was founded in 2014.

New renderings and a new name. The development is now called "The Great Falls"...

All of the photo links in this thread for the original design died, so here is the original "Loretto Fallsview" development for comparison...

Love the new design. Really dodged a Vegas+Michael Graves red-headed stepchild bullet with the old design...

Wow, massive improvement. Looks very contemporary.

The old version had a 1990's Eastern European look, like something on the outskirts of Budapest complete with a megamall.

Looks really good!

I'm assuming all proposals are now dead or long stalled due to the fact we've entered into a deep global recession. :-(
