The Adirondack Trust Company announced today that it has finalized the design for their Wilton Branch located at 650 Maple Avenue. The Wilton Branch had burned down in March 2017 and is currently being redesigned by architectural firm, Phinney Design Group.
The new branch is designed with the future of banking in mind, and will feature many new enhancements designed to make the branch even more customer friendly. It will also feature an inviting, customer friendly service area and layout, safe deposit boxes, and three drive-thru lanes, which will include a drive-up ATM. Charles V. Wait, Jr., Executive Vice President of the Adirondack Trust Company said, “We are excited to begin the process of rebuilding our Wilton Branch which tragically burned down earlier this year. We are working diligently to ensure that our customers are taken care of and that we design the branch to be as customer friendly as possible. This design complements our recent launch of our new logo and website, and it reflects the continual evolution of our brand.”
The firm has designed the building itself to be rotated from the original footprint to engage both Maple Avenue and Northern Pines Road. “A reimaging of the existing parking lot improves safety and drivability, increases green space, and adds parking spots, allowing the location to host more customers at a time than before” said Michael Phinney, Principal Architect of Phinney Design Group. “The Adirondack Trust Company aims to support our region not only with financial services, but by actively engaging sustainable design. Phinney Design Group couldn’t be happier to help them achieve this aspiration. With this newly redesigned branch, we hope to set a precedent for design that reflects the Adirondack Trust Company’s mission and image for an ever-growing and bright future.”
The Adirondack Trust Company plans to begin construction on the branch in Spring 2018 and it is expected to be completed sometime that Summer.
