Mixed-use urban design projects in center cities are a complex undertaking. Numerous mixed-use developments are conceptualized each year, but few evolve into real projects and even fewer get finished. Such mega-scaled projects need pooling of resources from both public and private sectors. Hence, such projects are implemented with public/private partnerships and their successful accomplishment needs many things to fall in place. The public/private partnership has to be formed from the beginning of the project and should go till the end. "The Banks" project on Cincinnati riverfront was delayed because of various reasons. This book examines its implementation focusing on public/private partnership, compares it to other successful mixed-use projects in center cities and makes recommendations to complete it. The analysis identifies the critical factors in public/private partnership promoting successful mixed-use projects in center cities. It should be especially useful to professionals in planning and design field in addition to policy makers and developers.
