CINCINNATI, Ohio (August 02, 2011) – This summer some of Cincinnati’s newest residents are settling in and enjoying all the Queen City has to offer. According to them it’s happening at The Banks, Cincinnati’s new mixed-use development located along the Ohio River.
Current at The Banks, the development’s first apartment complex, opened its doors this spring to residents. The complex has attracted people from all walks of life. However, one thing they all seem to share is the excitement of living in Cincinnati’s premier live-work-play destination.
One of the newest residents is Amanda Rose. A recent Ohio State Law graduate, Amanda and her roommate wanted to find an apartment with great amenities that was close to their jobs and the social scene.
“I really like the location,” said Amanda. “I’m right by the river and I can walk to both work and the Reds’ games.”
Recent grads aren’t the only people flocking to The Banks. Mike Glotfelter, 65, has followed the development since its inception and was delighted to move into Current At The Banks. Although downtown life is a drastic change from Mike and his wife’s former life on 28 acres, they are learning to adjust.
“My experience has been wonderful,” said Mike. “I’ve always wanted to live downtown, and I have met a lot of nice people.”
Current At The Banks has amenities that include granite countertops, walk-in closets, built-in microwaves, contemporary finishes and a washer/dryer in every apartment. Resident Lindsay Rain described the amenities as one of the top selling points in her decision to move.
“I cannot put into words how happy I am that I decided to live at The Banks,” Rain said. “The pool is one of my favorite amenities. Some of the best bars and restaurants in the city are within walking distance, not to mention those that are conveniently right downstairs!”
Located between the Great American Ball Park and Paul Brown Stadium, The Banks spans 18 acres and features residential, office, retail and restaurant options for all to enjoy. Carter and The Dawson Company were selected by the City of Cincinnati and Hamilton County to serve as Master Developers for The Banks. Carter also served as Program Manager for the construction of the City and County-funded parking garage and infrastructure components of the project.
