Skylon Tower Revolving Dining Room Menu

On October 1, 1975, CP purchased the tower from Mr. Reese and his partners for $11 million. The tower’s summit features a verdigris-green copper roof similar to CP’s other properties, including the Château Frontenac in Quebec City and the Banff Springs Hotel in Banff, Alberta. CP owned and operated the tower until 1986, when it was sold for $18 million to two local Niagara hotel owners, John Gruyich of Michael’s Inn and George Yerich of the Holiday Inn By The Falls Motel. In 1988, George Yerich bought out John Gruyich’s ownership share of the Skylon for $13 million, however Milicent Gruyich continues to own the land underneath the Skylon. Mr. Yerich’s Skylon land lease will expire in 2064, at which time the Skylon Tower will revert to total ownership by the heirs of Milicent Gruyich. [citation needed]
