Hamister Says He Remains Committed to Falls Hotel Project

NIAGARA FALLS, NY-Developer Mark Hamister says he remains committed to his proposed hotel development deal in Niagara Falls and thinks it could be the start of an economic resurgence for the city. He called Governor Andrew Cuomo "the difference maker."

Hamister told 2 On Your Side's Claudine Ewing, "if it was not for Governor Cuomo, I don't think this project would be alive today."

The Hamister Group is proposing a $25.3 million dollar mixed-use development, including a hotel, apartments and banquet center.

The Niagara Falls City Council tabled the proposal as one lawmaker questioned the $100,000 price tag for the land and whether or not local workers would be used for the construction project.

The local competition is open to Western New York high school juniors and seniors enrolled in a Career & Technical school automotive program. Junior’s get their first taste of the program by participating in a Tire Rodeo, while seniors have a chance to put their overall automotive skills to the test and earn scholarships and other prizes. O’Callahan, now 22, participated in both competitions and in his senior year, went on to win the local competition and earn a spot at the national competition.

Niagara Falls Officials Desperately Try to Save Hotel Deal

NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y.  - Niagara Falls officials are doing all they can to keep the Hamister hotel proposal from falling apart.

Wednesday night, 2 On Your Side reported that Hamister was planning a news conference for Thursday afternoon, where he would announce he was pulling the plug on his proposal to develop a downtown lot into a $25 million hotel.  

2 On Your Side has since learned that Hamister told Niagara Falls leaders late Wednesday afternoon about his plan to withdraw.  After that, several local leaders started talking to the Hamister group, to try to convince them to reconsider.  It is unclear if Hamister is still going to withdraw his proposal or not, but he was at least convinced to cancel his planned news conference.
