Covington Condo High Rise Proposed
Great looking building for Covington. Would be a big boost to the restaurants/bars in that area to have a significant number of new residents. I think it could also be good for The Banks development to have this kind of real estate just across the suspension bridge from the proposed Cincinnati Development. Looks awesome to me, and the lead design architect is the same man who won the design contest for the new World Trade Center buildings in NYC, Daniel Libeskind.
I hate the design but any strong retail projects on the river will depend upon people living close to it. The more housing either downtown, OTR, Mt. Adams, Mt. Auburn, Bellevue, Columbia, Newport, Covington; the better for the banks and other projects.
Fingers crossed this comes to fruition. Though I'm hard pressed to have an impression on the architecture, I hope it doesn't go through the debilitating process of the new World Trade Center design.Post a Comment
