North Shore Bank moves forward with plans for new Water Street branch
MILWAUKEE COUNTY (CBS 58) -- North Shore Bank announced on Thursday their plan to build a new full-service branch office near the intersection of Water and Pleasant streets just north of downtown Milwaukee.
The bank filed initial paperwork with the city of Milwaukee and anticipates construction to begin within a year.
The new branch will be the bank's first in the fast-growing North End neighborhood.
The approximately 1,800-square-foot branch office will be at 510 E. Pleasant St. on land the bank purchased in 2016.
The bank intends to blend old and new by renovating the vacant, two-story building already on the site and constructing a 1.5-floor addition adjacent to it.
The office will have an open-concept lobby and full-service staff to assist personal and business customers. The service team will include bankers and a branch manager knowledgeable in deposit, lending, and retirement products and services.
The office will offer easy and convenient service options that include a self-serve coin counter, video conferencing capabilities with bank experts, and remote Video Teller service that allows customers flexible options, including 70 hours/7 days a week extended banking hours.
