Hamilton County Commissioners are giving their approval to the next phase of the Banks project. The board approved the plan Wednesday.
Project counsel Tom Gableman says Phase II-A will create 706 construction jobs.
"In terms of wages, that's about $30 million," he says. "And the total economic impact, both direct and indirect, is about $115 million."
Announced earlier this month, Phase II-A includes 305 apartments and 21,000 square feet of retail space. Gabelman estimates retail employment will create 345 jobs.
