NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (WIVB) - Buffalo-based developer Mark Hamister was set to hold a press conference at 2 p.m. Thursday afternoon, ostensibly, to talk about his $25 million hotel project in Niagara Falls.
But that press conference was abruptly canceled, and Hamister's company isn't saying why.
On Tuesday night, Niagara Falls City Councilmembers were expecting to vote on the hotel deal. But some on the City Council think the piece of land the city agreed to sell Hamister is worth more than the agreed-upon price, OF $100,000.
Niagara Falls Mayor Paul Dyster SAYS he's trying to set up a meeting with Hamister on Friday, to make a last-ditch effort to save the project.
