Grand Opening: Elevations Credit Union, Fort Collins
FORT COLLINS — Elevations Credit Union will celebrate the opening of its new Fort Collins Midtown branch Saturday, Feb. 10. The branch features Elevations’ award-winning “Branch 2.0” model, which delivers a new type of experience, combining personal service, the latest technology, and inviting design elements, with a focus on a highly personal, welcoming experience for members. The Neenan Company, a fully-integrated design-build firm based in Fort Collins, applied the Branch 2.0 model as it performed the design and construction of the Fort Collins Midtown branch property.
“The new branch will offer business bankers, mortgage loan officers, wealth management advisors and financial solutions guides on-site and ready to serve a full range of banking needs,” said Bryan Watkins, Elevations Credit Union’s Northern Colorado market president. “Personalized service and advanced banking technology will make it easier for Elevations members to complete transactions, gain advice and grow their wealth.”
The Neenan Company served as the design-build partner for Elevations’ Fort Collins Midtown branch as a redevelopment in an area experiencing resurgence, as the City of Fort Collins has put substantial effort into revitalization. The 4,900-square-foot Midtown branch was built with a modern design reflecting the surroundings and lifestyles of the Northern Colorado community, including interior finishes made of sustainable materials, and local Fort Collins artwork.
“The Neenan Company is honored to deliver Elevations Credit Union’s first freestanding branch to Fort Collins, which also represents our first ground-up project with the respected credit union,” said David Shigekane, president of The Neenan Company. “We’ve been privileged to share a longstanding relationship with Elevations Credit Union, connected by a similar culture and desire to be trailblazers within our respective industries. The new building manifests the credit union’s brand and culture by bringing a touch of modern design to Midtown.”
Growing rapidly since entering the market, Elevations is now ranked as one of the top three consumer mortgage lenders in Larimer County. The Midtown branch provides another convenient Northern Colorado location for members of the community, in addition to existing Fort Collins Harmony Road and Loveland branches.
The Midtown Branch will also serve as a gathering place after hours for financial seminars, business meet-ups and other networking events. Branch staff was recruited locally to ensure they have a feel for the Fort Collins community.
Elevations will host a grand opening celebration at the new Fort Collins Midtown branch at 2025 S. College Avenue from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 10.
