New developments are taking shape in Downtown Niagara Falls especially around the newly reconfigured Robert Moses Parkway that has begun to open up access to the long-neglected waterfront. The warmer weather has been a blessing for construction crews on the Doubletree by Hilton hotel on Buffalo Avenue under-construction.

Developer Faisal Merani is undertaking the $27 million project that includes significant demolition at the former Fallside Hotel, taking down the entire two-story section fronting the Robert Moses Parkway, renovating the four-story section of the building and building a nine story tower overlooking the Niagara River.

The hotel will have 194 rooms, 16,000 sq.ft. of banquet facilities, including a 550 person ballroom, an indoor pool, a gym, and a signature restaurant with an outdoor patio area.
