Queen Street


Our historic downtown cores have a role to play in the transformation of Niagara. These precious spaces offer rich history, and a sense of place that define communities and are part of the fabric that makes us who we are as Niagarans. Our downtowns are walkable, filled with unique architecture, and are scaled to make us feel comfortable as we interact with the environment. All of our downtowns offer charm and significant potential. Interesting shopping dining and entertainment opportunities can be found across Niagara.. In our view, downtown Niagara will return to be a focus of local community life. While big box developments will continue to dominate retail, people are yearning for a more intimate and unique retail experience that is so well accommodated in a downtown environment.

We IMAGINE a vibrant locally focused downtown, the heart of the Niagara Falls community, a place where tourists will seek to mix with our local residents drawn by our authenticity, great value, and service.

We BELIEVE our goal will be accomplished following a simple four point plan;

  • We have renovated or added over 60 new living units to the downtown over the past few years. We have plans to complete at least 20 more over the next 3 years.
  •  We have divested a number of buildings to "hands on" entrepreneurs to broaden the diversity of ownership and infuse new ideas and energy
  •  We lease retail and office spaces at affordable rates 
  • We work collaboratively with the BIA, City, and other stakeholders to foster new ideas and action to deal with issues that face all downtowns, such as parking, promotion, signage, and property standards enforcement.

We believe that downtown Niagara Falls does have extraordinary momentum. We also happen to have a small advantage that would be the envy of any downtown... international name recognition, and about 13 million visitors per year located just a couple of kilometres up the street.


Imagine and Believe.
