Our Argyle Branch is closing at the end of the business day on Saturday, Dec. 19.

That Saturday, our Argyle lobby will be closed. The drive-through will be open during normal branch hours.

After December 19, head one block south to our new, bigger North St. Branch at 930 West North St. The new branch will have 4,500-sq. feet of supreme member services, including six drive-through lanes and two ATMs, plus a ton of more lobby and parking space.

Stay tuned for details on our North St. Branch grand opening event. In the meantime, check out the latest pictures from the North St. construction site.

North St. - materials

Construction is continuing at our new North St. Branch, and we have new photos to share.

O’Harrow Construction now has the base of the building set up, and is working on pouring concrete, setting the roof, and defining walls at the branch location.

Argyle vs. North St. – size comparison

So just how big is our North St. Branch property?

Using Google Maps, you can see exactly how big it is in comparison with our Argyle Branch property – the red-circled spot on the map above.

At the bottom, you can see our North St. property, which – as of this snapshot – is still a big green, grassy field. The white box overlaying the field is the entire property on Argyle St.

North St. is going to be big.

Breaking ground at North St.

North St. groundbreaking - Photo opp is over

The rain held off long enough on Wednesday for our board of directors to break ground at our new North St. Branch project.

Actual construction started in the last few weeks, but the ceremony to kick off the new branch building had everyone posing with hard hats and golden shovels for the event. Representatives from O’Harrow Construction brought a preview of what the new branch will look like.

Check out pictures on our Flickr page.

North St. Branch groundbreaking August 26

North St. - heading west

We’re excited to announce our official North St. Branch groundbreaking ceremony will take place Wednesday, Aug. 26 at 4:30 p.m.

American 1’s board of directors, senior management, and representatives from O’Harrow Construction, will oversee the kick-off for construction on our newest branch. We hope to have the whole thing done by December this year.

Come out and join us!

Track our North St. Branch progress

We added a little progress bar (maybe you’ll recognize the shape) to track progress on our North St. Branch. Check it out along the sidebar at right.

When you click the bar, you’ll head to our Flickr photo page to see pictures on the construction process. We’ll take pictures of the site every so often and provide updates as we go along. This month will kick things off with our groundbreaking ceremony on Wednesday, Aug. 26 at 4:30 p.m. You’re invited to join us!

If everything goes according to plan, the North St. Branch will be fully operational in December 2009. It sounds crazy, but that’s just a few months away.

About our new North St. Branch

North St. - North St. and Wisner

If you read the Jackson Citizen Patriot last weekend, you probably saw our exciting announcement: we’re building a new, 4,500 square foot branch on North St. in Jackson.

This new branch will replace our Argyle Branch, and will feature more drive-through lanes, more parking, and more space.

The lot is on West North St., next to the Aldi store on the corner of North and Wisner St., as you head down the hill.

We’re very excited about this new, bigger, better branch, which is scheduled to open by this winter. Look for more news on our groundbreaking and construction efforts, coming soon. In the meantime, check out how the lot looks now on our Flickr page.
