Architect and Contractor: The Redmond Company
This 5,100 square-foot retail branch facility features commercial and mortgage lenders, teller transaction pods, four drive‐thru lanes, a generous lobby space including customer café and waiting area, and various employee support spaces.
This is a unique site perched high on a plateau overlooking a main artery in Papillion, a suburb of Omaha. The grade change necessitated a large retaining wall on the western edge of the property which gives the site visual prominence from all directions. The parcel is a part of the “Cornhusker Plaza” development and as such is tied together with surrounding properties with a landscaped bike path and sidewalks which were part of this project.
This building is designed to showcase the interior from the street to draw in customers as a retail facility would. The architect designed a cutting‐edge high‐end facility relatively free of any major budget or space constraints. This is best evidenced by the breathtaking lobby space surrounded by a large expanse of glass and bold accent lighting, as well as the dramatic roofline. The contemporary color palette and wood branding wall, visible from the outside, creates a memorable experience for visitors.
