Inside Business has an article with some new details about the planned TowneBank branch at Wards Corner.
Though still in the early design stages, Keith Horton, TowneBank senior executive vice president, said the plan is to build a free-standing retail branch of about 4,500 to 5,000 square feet. It will have an ATM, drive-through teller and night deposit station.
Construction, Horton said, will follow the construction timeline of Harris Teeter, expected to begin in April.
TowneBank chose Wards Corner for its new retail branch location, Horton said, because of the redevelopment happening there.
“It completes our market for Norfolk,” he said. “It fills a gap in the Hampton Roads community.”
Yvonne Allmond, Senior Vice President of Towne Bank, was on the bank’s search committee. It was her faith in Wards Corner’s potential that led to the bank choosing the Wards Corner location for their new branch. Yvonne Allmond is running for the Virginia House Of Delegates 89th House seat. There will be a primary held Wednesday, October 17th, 5:30pm – 8:30pm at the Masonic Temple, 7001 Granby Street. The winner of the primary will most likely be the new delegate for the 89th House District since there will be no Republican or Independent candidates for the House seat. Please vote for Yvonne, a candidate that knows and cares about Wards Corner. Just show up, vote and leave. The five minutes it takes you to vote will make a two year difference in leadership for Norfolk in Richmond.
