High-rise tower planned for Niagara Falls, Ontario


A 72-story building anchored by an internationally-branded hotel is being proposed for Niagara Falls, Ontario

The site is located on a parcel not far from the Scotiabank Convention Centre and Fallsview Resort and Casino.

If approved, the building would be the tallest in Southern Ontario, outside of metropolitan Toronto.

The developer, Jeremia Rudan’s 6609 Stanley Nominee Inc., is working with Niagara Falls officials on the project, with a Nov. 12 public hearing set. A price tag will be determined when and if all the municipal approvals are granted.

The project is proposed for a Stanley Avenue site between Dixon and Dunn streets and sits on a parcel where a partially developed, 30-story Crowne Plaza Hotel began construction but the work stalled in 2004 after Niagara Falls saw a drop in tourism. For the past 15 years, only the poured concrete of two floors stood on the site.

Should 6609 Stanley Nominee complete the project, it would surpass the 56-story Hilton Hotel & Suites on Fallsview Boulevard as Niagara Falls, Ont.’s tallest building.
