The Banks is a mixed-use development, uniquely situated on the Ohio River at the foot of the historic Roebling Suspension Bridge and between the Great American Ballpark and Paul Brown Stadium. A multi phased project, it provides an active and vibrant connection between downtown Cincinnati and the river front, filling what was essentially a void in this important connection. The completed work transformed the urban riverfront into a vibrant and sustainable gateway, linking the existing entertainment venues and providing a variety of attractions within itself.
Year of Completion
Moody Nolan teamed with CR Architecture + Design in the design of this project. Included in Phase 1 was approximately 300 rental dwelling units in a mix of one- and two-bedroom types along with approximately 60,000 sq. ft. of ground level retail and restaurant space. Apartments have dramatic views of downtown Cincinnati and the Ohio River, and the streetscape is an exciting urban space populated with residents and the many visitors to the riverfront site with its sports stadiums and the Freedom Center museum.
The architectural features and details of the project were carefully coordinated through vigorous discussions with many public and private partnership entities. The result is a balance of modern aesthetics and economical design. Balconies and roof top terraces bring activities to the outside showcasing the active urban lifestyle within.
