Legacy Community Federal Credit Union Opens New Branch in Hoover, Alabama
Legacy Community Federal Credit Union’s directors and staff are excited to be opening a new branch office on Highway 280 East, at the intersection with Meadowbrook Road, in Hoover. The new branch will replace their existing Greystone branch, which is located at 288 Greystone Commercial Boulevard, at a shopping center also located on Highway 280 East. The new branch is only a four-minute drive and less than two miles west of the existing Greystone Branch, on Highway 280.
“Offering a full-service, modern, and convenient stand-alone branch to new and existing members who work and reside along the Highway 280 corridor, south of the I-459, is a dream come true,” stated Joe McGee, President/CEO of Legacy. “We have waited a long time to find the right property and location, and we are extremely fortunate to secure a former bank facility at exactly the right location,” continued Mr. McGee.
The lobby of the 4,000-square foot, new branch will be renovated and upgraded to create an enhanced, concierge-style banking experience. Staff members will greet the members and escort them to transaction services at two teller pods or to loan services in three offices. The lobby also will offer a coffee lounge with high-top tables, a private waiting area, a community/conference room, and safe deposit boxes. The drive-up lanes will be expanded from the single lane presently offered at the Greystone branch to two banking lanes, plus an ATM lane. The exterior of the building will be improved with new signage and landscaping.
Today, Legacy Community Federal Credit Union has eight branches, with more than $445 million in assets, and offers membership to anyone who works, worships or attends school in Jefferson, Shelby, Blount, St. Clair, Walker, Chilton, and Bibb counties. Legacy opened its doors as University Credit Union in 1955 to serve the UAB community. After serving the education and healthcare industries for more than 50 years, Legacy expanded its field of membership to include the Greater Birmingham Metropolitan Area and changed its name to Legacy Community Federal Credit Union in 2006.
Eclipse Brand Builders, based in Suwanee, Georgia, provided design services, including architecture, engineering, interior design and procurement of the furnishings, fixtures, artwork and accessories for the project.
