The Redmond Company was selected to provide real estate consulting services including site recommendation and the selection of the 1-acre site in Bismarck, ND for American Bancor. Redmond is also designing and will be building the new ground-up multi-tenant facility.
The new facility will be designed using elements that are similar to American Bancor’s existing facility to build on brand recognition. The design includes a metal roof and flat metal panels to call attention to the main facade facing the main street. A raised clerestory will run the length of the bank property. The bank’s entrance will be marked with smooth cast stone. Large canopies will act as sunshades above each oversized retail window. Horizontal wood panels along the roofline will offer a unique architectural detail.
A unique detail of this project is that the new building is designed to be a multi-tenant facility. American Bancor will house its branch operations in approximately 2,250 square feet while the remaining 2,009 square feet will be leased to a retail tenant.
Currently in design, the project is expected to begin construction in spring 2017 with construction completion in late fall 2017.
