The Banks shows just how busy it was on Opening Day

The developers of the Banks, Carter and the Dawson Co., wanted to show just how much activity was at the riverfront development for Cincinnati Reds Opening Day.

The answer? It was really, really busy.

To show the number of people stopping by restaurants and bars that include Holy Grail at the Banks, Crave and Tin Roof, the developers had a video put together.

The video was posted here, on Carter’s YouTube channel. As you can see from this screen capture of the video, the Banks was packed wall-to-wall with Reds fans for the game.

That’s something potential retail tenants have to be excited about.

I wrote about the developers’ plans for phase II a few weeks ago. Developers are still determining what the final mix of space will look like for this phase, located just west of the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, but retailers want to know where they can open up shop in the next phase.

The design approved in 2012 by the Urban Design Review Board includes 300 apartments and another 60,000 square feet of street-level retail space.
