    Banks project to be open by end of 2009

    Well, I don't know about you folks but I'm convinced.

    Banks Project To Be Open By End Of 2009

    It's been one of the most talked-about and debated pieces of property in Cincinnati -- the area along the Ohio River known as the Banks.

    Now, people are getting the first look at what is expected to go into that space by the end of the decade.

    News 5?s John London said the Banks Working Committee is showing off artist renderings of a high-density housing, office and entertainment development. It will start close to Great American Ball Park and move west toward Paul Brown Stadium in the later phases. But initially, London said, expect restaurants, cafes, offices and condos from the east side of the 16-acre area up to Second Street and to the south of the Freedom Center.

    AIG Carter hopes to break ground this fall, start construction before the end of the year and have the first residential units open by the time the ball drops to mark the start of 2010.

    Still undetermined: how the funding for the project will come together. London said that he's been told that it's still up in the air, but that it's hoped that funding will be finalized in the next three weeks.

    Stay tuned to News 5 and WLWT.com for the latest information later today.

    I fixed the title for you.

    It will be neat to see the latest round of renderings and dream about having a place to go before and after ballgames.

    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    Did I ever tell you about the time I caught that 250 pound catfish out of the Ohio River? And it glowed green in the dark for some reason. Man that was great.

    That's all?

    Drawings. No money. And to think I was skeptical.
    Makes all the routine posts.

    I still think the fitting end for the Banks project would be for the county to pick it as the spot for the new jail.

    I've followed The Banks project with interest because I've considered retiring to Cincinnati with it's lower cost of housing. The timing of this couldn't be better since it should coincide with my retirement date----right about the time I finish my second 30 year career as an astrophysicist. :
