New Wingate by Windham hotel in Niagara Falls holding ribbon cutting Thursday

The official wraps are coming off the new Wingate by Windham hotel in Niagara Falls on Thursday.

State and local officials are joining the hotel’s owners, Plati Niagara, a company formed by Antonio, Frank and Anthony Strangio, for a ribbon cutting at the 110-room hotel at 333 Rainbow Blvd.

The $10.2 million hotel, one of several hotel and development projects either underway or in the works for Niagara Falls, actually opened in late April.

The project was awarded a $980,000 grant from the state in early February to reimburse Plati Niagara for construction costs. The Niagara County Industrial Development agency a year ago granted the project an incentive package that inclueded about $1.5 million in tax breaks.

The Strangio family owns Antonio’s Banquet and Conference Center and a Quality Inn at 7708 Niagara Falls Blvd.
