Local bank breaks ground for new facility

April 30, 2017 by  

North Arlington’s Kearny Bank will soon be replaced by a new building.

Ground was recently broken for a new office building on what is now a parking lot. The old building will be torn down to make room for parking for the new building.

The new building, which is a modern structure made of brick, is expected to be completed by November of this year. The president and CEO of Kearny Bank, Craig Montanaro, said that the bank is proud of its 130-year history in North Arlington. He added that this meant that the current facility was found inadequate to meet the needs of its customers and a renovation would not only have been insufficient, but would have inconvenienced its customers.

The new bank will have 4,000 square feet of public space. A ceiling, 17 feet in height, will provide natural light in the lobby, and solar glass will be used for increased solar gain and insulation, and greater thermal energy efficiency. LED lights will be used throughout the building, and there will be eight teller stations and two drive-up lanes.

The bank might consider hiring a print company to print flyers about the new facility that it can make available to customers so they will know what to expect in the new building.
