What kind of redevelopment is on the horizon?
Recently, news surfaced about a redevelopment planned for Auburn Bank’s downtown property. Auburn Bank has served locals for more than a century, starting all the way back in 1907—and it continues to thrive. With the new redevelopment, the Bank will have a centralized location, which includes 96,000 square-feet of space. It will also feature draws like:
- The continued use of the original drive-thru;
- Select space allocated for retail businesses;
- (Potentially) wider sidewalks in the area;
- A parking deck, complete with 535 new spaces for motorists to park; and
- (Potentially) a building with both condos and retail areas, to be completed in the second phase.
Auburn Bank is daring to dream big! Ultimately, it intends to have three whole phases of building, with the third phase’s features remaining to be decided.
