Some students at Notre Dame got to show off their designs Thursday, which we could soon see at South Bend's West Bank.

Students in the school of architecture have joined forces with the South Bend Community Investment Department to open an exhibit displaying plans to reimagine the area.

The team met Thursday morning to officially open the exhibit, which will be in the County-City Building for the next 90 days.

City Planning Director Tim Corcoran said the goal is to create a new economic and social network for the West Bank of the St. Joseph River.

"And look at ways they could revitalize that area through traditional urbanism," Corcoran said "That's a connected street network, traditional block network and what could possibly happen in those areas."

The school has a history of collaboration with South Bend and has developed other master plans for different parts of the city.
