It's happening on the river!
Rising out of the flood plain of the Ohio River between Cincinnati's two major league sports stadia, The Banks is Greater Cincinnati's largest single, mixed-use development. Situated on the historic banks of the Ohio River, the site features premier shopping, fine and casual dining, and 300 luxury apartments, with office and hotel space planned for the future.
A commitment between the City of Cincinnati and Hamilton County—The Banks Public Partnership—made the project possible. By leveraging local, county, regional, state and federal resources for the public infrastructure development phases of The Banks, the Public Partnership laid the foundation for the private developer to construct the residential, office, hotel and retail components (see map for details).
This first-of-its-kind project in Cincinnati benefits the entire Greater Cincinnati region. In addition to creating a destination where people can live, work and play, The Banks is a catalyst for regional economic growth. When all elements of the site are completed, the economic impact of operations is expected to be $276 million per year to the Cincinnati riverfront, while providing a place to live for more than 3,000 residents and offering the region’s citizens a complete riverfront entertainment destination.
