Credit union building suburban branch
A credit union has broken ground on its sixth and largest office in greater Grand Rapids.
Kalamazoo-based Consumers Credit Union broke ground last month on a new branch in Wyoming, at 220 54th St. SW.
Construction is expected to be completed in January 2020.
The project cost was not disclosed.
Kit Snyder, president and CEO of Consumers, said the office will support an anticipated “increase in demand for consumer loans and mortgages.”
“Lending is one of our greatest strengths, and we are committed to providing the financing options that meet the needs of our community, including businesses,” he said.
At the new location, Consumers will offer new accounts, loans, credit cards, mortgages, investment services, business services and more.
This will be Consumers’ sixth and largest office in the Grand Rapids area, at 6,145 square feet.
The two-story office will consist of a main level with interactive teller technology in the lobby and drive-through lanes.
The main floor also will feature a free coffee bar, wireless banking stations with Wi-Fi, and loan and member service areas.
Community events and financial education seminars also will be hosted on the main level.
The location will have offices on both floors, with a combination of private office and open plan spaces for the various departments on the second level.
Firms on the project
The project’s contractor is Grand Rapids-based CopperRock Construction.
Kalamazoo-based Bosch Architecture is handling the architecture.
