Between 2007 and 2010, the City of Niagara Falls and USA Niagara Development Corporation redesigned and reconstructed Old Falls Street from the entrance of Niagara Falls State Park to The Conference & Event Center Niagara Falls.
The reconstruction of the street returned cars to Old Falls Street while still providing exciting spaces for pedestrian life, activities and concerts. Spectra was contracted to manage Old Falls Street and to provide maintenance as well as coordinate and arrange activities along the street.
In this latest reinvention of this historic street, Old Falls Street, USA, aims to be a dynamic, exciting destination for tourists and residents alike. It is envisioned to be a welcoming and family-friendly center of downtown Niagara Falls and is easily walkable from all area attractions and hotels.
Spectra manages Old Falls Street, USA and The Conference & Event Center Niagara Falls, as well as more than 120 other public assembly facilities around the world. Nearly 24-million people attended more than 15,000 events in Spectra venues last year. Based in Philadelphia, PA, Spectra is part of Comcast-Spectacor, one of the world’s largest sports and entertainment companies. Comcast-Spectacor, which operates in 48 of the 50 United States, also owns the Philadelphia Flyers of the National Hockey League, Ovations Food Services, a food and beverage services provider, Paciolan, the leading provider of venue establishment ticketing, fundraising and marketing technology solutions, Front Row Marketing Services, a commercial rights sales company, and Flyers Skate Zone, a series of community ice skating rinks.
