If Jeffrey Andrews and his partners have their way, people crossing into Canada via the Peace Bridge — once the border reopens — will be greeted by a new signature development.

Andrews, head of Compass Land Developments Ltd. (formerly ATW Development Niagara), said plans for the new Compass Heights development project at the corner of Central Avenue and Garrison Road are full speed ahead despite the ongoing pandemic.

With an estimated construction price of more than $100 million, plans include condominiums, a rooftop restaurant, bowling alleys for building tenants and a Timber Hall reception/lobby with a large custom aquarium and exotic fish.

As well there will be main floor commercial space, a Brewhouse restaurant and possibly a nanobrewery on the ground floor. The two-tier project would have eight storeys on one part and 12 on a tower section complete with an observation deck.

“It needs to be spectacular, it needs to have a vista impact,” said Andrews. “It’s the face of Canada and Fort Erie and Niagara.”
