Ft. Mitchell Building May Be Razed to Make Way for New Bank Branch

A new bank branch is looking to open on Buttermilk Pike in Ft. Mitchell, but first, a demolition would take place.

The Kenton County Planning Commission will consider a couple of items on Thursday related to the matter.

Midland Atlantic Properties, a real estate firm with offices in Cincinnati and Indianapolis, is asking for a map amendment to the city's zoning ordinance that would change 405 Buttermilk Pike from being in a residential zone to being zoned as "limited service commercial".

The plan is to construct a bank branch with a drive-thru option, for which the city will also seek a text amendment to its zoning ordinance which would add financial institutions and drive-thru windows to the list of permitted uses in limited service commercial zones.

405 Buttermilk Pike is currently the address for Average Joe's, a sports bar and grill, which would be torn down to make way for the new bank.

The bank's brand identity was not revealed at Monday night's Ft. Mitchell city council meeting.
