Unity Bank relocated to a larger space in Union, housed within a new mixed-use development downtown.
The Union Township Chamber of Commerce, Unity Bank and business and community leaders celebrated the financial institution’s 1,800-square-foot branch at Centurion Union Center, across the street from the store’s previous location, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, Unity bank announced Oct. 20.
“The bank is fortunate because the Union leadership and community have been very supportive of the bank since we first opened a location in the township in 1996,” said Unity President and Chief Executive Officer James Hughes. “We look forward to welcoming our customers and future customers into our new Union home.”
Union Mayor Michele Delisfort said the city was “delighted” that the bank decided to expand downtown, describing Unity as “a great community partner.”
The branch is located at 945 Stuyvesant Ave. at the intersection of Stuyvesant and Rosemont Avenues.
American Landmark Development founder Manny Fernandez, whose company developed Centurion Union, said the mixed-use community aims to offer street-level retail options that provide “important community services” as a means to enhance the experience of residents.
“Unity Bank certainly fits that mold,” he said in a statement.
Leasing is currently underway for the second phase of residences at Centurion Union center, offering 75 apartments with a full suite of amenities in a four-story building. According to Unity, upon completion, Centurion Union will add 236 new residences and 27,000 square feet of retail space to Union Center.
