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.
