A familiar building in downtown Union is about to get a serious makeover.

Preparations are underway to begin construction on a new 14,000-square-foot addition and renovation on the existing building at United Bank of Union’s location at 15 E. Main St.

The addition will include a two-story structure with a full basement that will nearly double the size of the building to 30,000 square feet.

“We are really excited to modernize our facility,” said United Bank of Union President and CEO Mike Elliott. “We are really proud to be able to upgrade both our customer and employee experience.”

Customers will experience a new lobby featuring an enhanced customer seating area, conference rooms, and personal teller stations allowing enhanced communication between customers and staff.

On the outside, the bank will have a new all-brick exterior and a renovated three-lane drive-thru with a fourth lane for ATM use.

Improved parking lot lighting and a reconfigured lot with more customer parking spaces will be on the west side of the building.

“As the bank grows, we want a building that can keep all of our staff and services together,” Elliott said.

The addition will expand the building to the north and encompass most of the current parking lot between the building and Cherry Street.

“We ask our customers to be patient with us during construction,” Elliott said.

The Main Street location is one of three branches located in Union.

Locations at 210 Highway 50 West and 1440 Rebel Road will be available to accommodate all customer needs during the project, but Elliott noted that the Main Street branch will maintain business hours throughout construction.

The bank has 87 employees at all locations.

“We want our customers to experience the growth right along with us,” he said. “We will be sharing photos of the progress to the community as we go.”

Construction will begin in spring of 2018 and projects to finish in late 2019.
