The Banks begins construction on Phase II

Posted: Updated:
CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Despite rain and severe weather, construction on the second phase of The Banks project kicked off on Monday.

The Banks' Phase IIA will be located on the block bounded by Rosa Parks to Race Street and between Freedom Way and Second Street.

It will have approximately 291 apartments and 20,000 square feet of space for retail. The structure for the apartments will be nine stories tall.

Construction activities for the coming week include fencing, mobilization, and selective demolition for the overbuild construction.

There are plans for a new hotel next to Great American Ball Park as part of Phase IIA, with more work expected around the area as the entire project moves on.

The entire Banks project won't be finished until 2020.
