The Banks photo update, 12/28/08

Cranes, holes, and mud.

Real signs of progress are emerging at The Banks site Downtown, although Sunday was an off day.

Following construction of the parking structure, the first phase will include up to 300 apartments and 80,000 square feet of retail and is scheduled for completion in 2010.

At buildout, The Banks will consist of 2.8 million square feet of residential, office, and retail and is expected to drive $600 million to $800 million in private investment.

Suzanne has posted an official press release from Carter/Dawson on The Banks Blog.
