Boy has the skyline of Niagara changed over the past fifteen years. I can remember in the 60’s the tallest buildings in Niagara Falls were the Skylon Tower, Seagram Tower (now The Tower Hotel Fallsview) and the Oneida Tower.

Today there are five more buildings that stand taller than 100 metres (328 feet) the tallest being the 56 storey, 183 m (600 foot) Hilton Niagara Falls Tower 2. The majority of the other buildings are hotels offering view of the falls.

Today the city has 7 skyscrapers over 75 m. (246 feet) and 15 high rise buildings that exceed 35 m (115 feet) in height.

I took this photograph of the Niagara skyline in April of 2014 looking north from the Niagara Parkway just above the Canadian Horseshoe Falls.
