April 3, 2008 – Aquesta Bank is opening its spectacular new corporate headquarters building in Cornelius to the public in an all-day grand opening celebration on Thursday, April 17. The three-story, 20,000 square foot facility, located at 19510 Jetton Rd, will be open from 8:30 – 5:00 PM for the celebration.
A ceremonial ribbon cutting with the Lake Norman Chamber will be held at 11:00 AM. During the ceremony, local area high school honor guards will raise an American flag recently flown over military troops in Iraq to honor of those serving our country in the war. A fly-over is also in the works, weather permitting.
During the grand opening celebration, Aquesta will be giving tours of the new headquarters building on the hour. The bank, made of blue/green glass and stone, and environmentally-friendly features will obtain a substantial amount of power through solar energy panels. Architect Roger Layman of Davidson, N.C. designed the unique structure to reflect the waters of Lake Norman.
Guests at Thursday’s celebration will be able to enjoy hotdogs and popcorn, and are eligible to enter to win one of five IPOD nano’s which will be given away in a drawing every two hours throughout the day! Aquesta Bank customers can also enter each day the entire month of April to win a 15-foot Aquesta Blue tandem kayak with paddles. A surprise celebrity appearance is also scheduled for the afternoon.
The magnificent building, which houses the bank’s corporate offices, opened in February also serves as a branch for customers. The new facility offers several new amenities including drive thru windows & ATM, safety deposit boxes, night drop and a community room that can be utilized by local residents and businesses free of charge.
