– Aquesta Bank opened its spectacular new corporate headquarters building on Jetton Road in Cornelius this week. The 3-story, 20,000 square foot facility features a blend of blue/green glass and stone, as well as environmentally friendly features.
The building, which will house the bank’s corporate offices, will also serve 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. The bank will obtain a substantial amount of power for the building through solar energy panels.
Architect Roger Layman of Davidson, N.C. designed the unique structure to reflect the waters of Lake Norman. The building which was constructed by Edifice, took a year to complete and was managed by Global Project Solutions in Huntersville. A groundbreaking ceremony was held in March of last year.
“We are very excited about our move into Aquesta Bank’s new corporate facility,” says bank President and CEO Jim Engel. “It enables us to better serve our customers and meet their needs more effectively. We feel like the new headquarters building will also provide a strong connection to the Lake Norman area, and serve as a focal point for our community.”
