The Cincinnati central riverfront plan, which includes Carter’s The Banks, has received the 2013 National Planning Excellence Award for Implementation from the American Planning Association (APA).
John Deatrick, the city-county project executive for The Banks, told the Cincinnati Business Courier that the honor is the “Oscar” of planning awards. “We didn’t just produce a beautiful table-top book,” Deatrick said. “Through the efforts of thousands, we built it. We did what we said we were going to do.”
APA is an independent, not-for-profit educational organization that provides leadership in the development of vital communities.
Carter is scheduled to begin construction in early 2013 on the second phase of The Banks, which will include 300 apartment units and more than 60,000 square feet of street-level retail. To learn more about The Banks, check out our previous blog post.
