Jefferson City-based based Central Bank is in the midst of renovating a building across from the Missouri State Capitol that most recently housed a coffee shop and restaurant.

Press & Port's Eatery at 105 W. High St. closed last summer.

Central Bank plans to spend at least $80,000 on the project, according to building permits filed with Jefferson City. The office will have a work room, conference room, reception area and two offices, according to the building permits.

Central Bank Vice President Jim Crabtree said the company owns the building but did not elaborate further. Central Bank's travel division, Central Travel, has an office next door at 103 W. High St.

Before Press & Port's owners Derek and Angi Dunham took over the business in fall 2016, Central Missouri Community Action operated the restaurant as Cafe Via Roma.

Central Bank's main office is at 238 E. Madison St. in downtown Jefferson City.
