Table Rock Restaurant & Retail Store

This redevelopment project is intended to modernize and refresh Table Rock Centre, enhancing a flagship location that supports and advances Niagara Parks Commission’s (NPC) vision and acts as a welcome centre to Niagara Parks while offering a variety of products, services and experiences that appeal to NPC’s broad range of visitors.

The project will renew and differentiate the culinary, retail and attraction experiences within Table Rock Centre, as well as generate a significant rate of return on NPC’s capital re-investment and grow revenues at Table Rock Centre to contribute to Niagara Parks self-sustaining operations.

The Table Rock Centre consists of two buildings connected by an indoor concourse area. The north side of the building, originally constructed in 1926, houses on the main floor a retail store, Welcome Centre, Journey Behind the Falls attraction and additional visitor amenities. The upper level contains the Niagara’s Fury attraction and retail store, a Welcome Centre, Retail Shop, Horseshoe Landing Patio and the Grand Hall viewing area. A new Bistro will be incorporated.

The south building, constructed in 1974, offers quick serve culinary outlets as well as a retail store and visitor amenities. The second-floor houses NPC’s full-service restaurant, Elements on the Falls which overlooks the Horseshoe Falls and the upper Niagara River.

BlueBlood Steakhouse, Casa Loma

In 2014, Liberty Entertainment Group entered into a lease agreement with the City of Toronto to operate Casa Loma, one of Toronto’s most prominent heritage tourist attractions.

+VG assisted Liberty in securing Heritage Preservation Services approval for several important programming initiatives. One such initiative is the design of a new fine-dining steakhouse within the historically significant Billiard Room, Smoking Room and Oak Room.

The project entailed restoration of significant components of the rooms, new ‘reversible’ installations including a cocktail bar and ice bar as well as a new finishing kitchen, LULA Elevator serving the kitchen from the basement, new kitchen exhaust with economizer and washroom renovations. While the client provided the theming and interior design of the restaurant, +VG prepared Heritage Impact Assessment Statement, prepared permit drawings and coordinated with the client’s engineering team.
