That is my thought as well. I live in another Downtown apartment building. I took one look at the residential rent at The Banks, said "no thanks" and left. It isn't that the rent is unreasonable--if it was the apartments wouldn't be at 100% capacity--it is that I can get cheaper rent on a larger space three blocks away. I imagine that retail cost is similar.
I am very excited about The Lager House. It is exactly what I was hoping for when The Banks started choosing tenants. The opening also coincides with the start of my new job; celebration time!
