Banks Event

The AIA Cincinnati Urban Design Committee organized a panel in the Studio to debate revised riverfront development plans for the "Banks" district. Panelists included Dave Prather-Cincinnati Park Board, Tim Riordan - Banks Working Group, Michael Schuster - MSA Architects, Bailey Pope - Carter Development Atlanta, and Dan Monk - Cincinnati Business Courier as moderator. Mr Pope, of Carter Development, selected by the Banks Working Group as the preferred master developer, presented past work of his company and unveiled the revised Banks Plan, which represents a significant departure from planning guidelines previously established for the district. Panelists debated pros and cons of the new development approach for the benefit of AIA members, students, and interested citizens.
