BizBeat: Hawthorn Bank opens in new Dunklin Street building
Sunday, October 6, 2013
Hawthorn Bank has officially moved into its new building on Jefferson City's West Dunklin Street, located adjacent to its old building.
Senior Vice President Gary Collins said the new location is open for business, but the bank is still in the construction phase as it prepares for deconstruction on its old facility. The old building was opened in late 1963, and will be torn down almost 50 years to the day. Demolition is set to begin this week, along with some parking lot deconstruction. New parking and a standalone ATM will be located in place of the old building.
The new 4,500 square-foot building is built to match the Old Munichburg charm, featuring bricks and rock, with a few high-tech digital signs inside and out.
“We have some furniture from the 1920s in the conference room,” Collins said. “It is combination of new and old,” to match its neighborhood.
The public is encouraged to come by and try out the new coffee bar. Collins said the building is really built to accommodate walk-up traffic from the neighborhood, as well as drive-up customers. The drive-thru was also built to be expanded upon in the future if need-be.
“Technology has allowed us to maintain our staff, there is more office space and conference room space,” Reed said of some of the features of the new location.
Linda Roettgen has been the branch manager at Hawthorn for many years. “She’ll be happy to meet with new and old friends. Stop by and have a cup of coffee,” he encouraged.
Collins said a grand opening will be planned in the coming months, once construction is complete.
