Niagara Falls Municipal Complex - Niagara Falls, NY

Overview

The Niagara Falls Public Safety Office located on Hyde Park Boulevard was vastly overcrowded and in need of maintenance repair.

Critical Issue

The Niagara Falls Public Safety Office located on Hyde Park Boulevard was vastly overcrowded and in need of maintenance repair.  In addition, the New York State Office of Court Administration was looking to replace their aging courthouse facilities as quickly as possible. 

Action Steps

In 2005, Ciminelli Development Company and their partner, Largo Real Estate Advisors, were selected as the lead development team for the new City of Niagara Falls Municipal Complex.  Working directly with the City, the Team selected a site on Main Street between Cleveland and Michigan Avenues in the heart of the City.  The new 130,982 sf three-story building will house the Niagara Falls local court system and police headquarters, and will include four court rooms and 53 holding cells. 

Results

The project is a positive step forward for Niagara Falls.  City officials and residents welcome the development, as it will signify the beginning of the much needed redevelopment of North Main Street.  Demolition at the site began in September of 2007, and the building is on schedule for completion in the Spring of 2009.
