Consumers Credit Union is pleased to announce that construction has begun on two new office locations in Grand Rapids. A formal groundbreaking took place earlier today at the Gaines Township location at 1673 68th St. SE, Caledonia, MI 49316.
Both offices will feature the latest in banking technology, including touch screen access to financial education and an online and mobile banking center for account access and demos. The 3,200 square foot floor plan consists of a full service lobby with a free coffee bar, children’s play area, and free wireless Internet access, along with a loan and member service area, drive thru lanes, and outdoor ATM.
Bosch Architecture is the architect for both offices, and Kalleward Group is the general contractor. Work at the Gaines Township site has already begun. Construction at the Cascade site, located at 5597 28th St. SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49512, will follow within two to three weeks. Both projects will take approximately six months.
Each office in this new market will offer the full range of Consumers’ services, including new accounts, loans, credit cards, mortgages, investment services, business services, and more.
“We anticipate high demand for consumer loans and mortgages, in particular,” says Kit Snyder, President and CEO. “We also provide business loans. Lending is one of our greatest strengths, and we are committed to providing the financing options that meet the needs of our community. Last year, CUNA recognized our strong loan portfolio and focus on member service by awarding us the Excellence in Lending Award for Consumer Lending.”
Consumers, which began operations in 1951, currently serves more than 59,000 members in West Michigan with 16 offices and over $550 million in total assets. The credit union has averaged 18% annual growth for the past 30 years and looks forward to continuing this strong trajectory of controlled growth while bringing more focused service to its Grand Rapids members with the opening of these new locations.
