Business

Developers are planning two skyscrapers for downtown Niagara Falls, Ontario – one 60 stories, the other 61. The buildings will far surpass the height of western New York’s other tallest building, the 40-story HSBC Tower in Buffalo. Sorry fans of Bird Kingdom - the new resort towers will use the site as a footprint. (Matt Glynn, Buffalo News)
