And then there's this article, confirming three local eateries looking at space at the Banks: http://nky.cincinnati.com/article/AB...ye-space-Banks
And you may not care about apartments and you may never live there, but apartments, condos and hotels are absolutely CRITICAL for any success The Banks will have. You need a critical mass of people living there, otherwise it's just an outdoor mall or Newport on the Levee 2.
I know that. I realize that it is coming together. But I am referencing an article (I can't find it because apparently you need to pay for articles over 30 days old) that stated that there were no confirmed tenants as recently as this fall.
I get it, its coming together which is nice. And I am slightly bitter that this prime piece of real estate sat undeveloped for years upon years upon years. I don't have an issue with the apartments being leased I just don't get all giddy inside about it. To be honest I would be fine if it were like Newport on the Levee 2.
The problem I have had with the Banks project is that it has been a colossal failure for years. Its probably the most prime piece of real estate in this city/county. It sat undeveloped for years because of fighting and poor leadership. It sure would have been nice to see it open in 2004 or 2005-6-7-8-9-10. I AM GLAD IT IS FINALLY COMING TOGETHER. I AM GLAD SOME OF IT WILL BE READY FOR OPENING DAY. I am just bitter at the long drawn out process that has gone along with it.
