Skyline National Bank Completes New Branch Office In Christiansburg, Va
Skyline National Bank recently announced the completion of its two-story, 7,000-square-foot New River Center Branch at the intersection of Peppers Ferry Road and North Franklin Street in Christiansburg, Virginia.
“We are excited to open a regional branch to expand our services and further meet the needs of consumers and business owners in New River Valley,” says Mr. Jonathon Kruckow, EVP/Regional President. “We look forward to continuing our combined 200-year tradition of community banking represented by the merger of two longtime community banks in this region.”
“We believe that this building represents both the history and the future of this community,” continued Mr. Kruckow, “and that it will quickly become an icon at one of the busiest intersections in Christiansburg.” The building was designed to integrate with other new and re-developed retail stores in the New River Center. The exterior design has a modern aesthetic that incorporates light-colored materials, including metal and brick, with “Hokie Stone,” which is a unique grey limestone rock found in the New River Valley. Hokie Stone is also a signature element used on the buildings throughout the campus of nearby Virginia Tech.
The interior design combines Skyline’s branding, logo, and corporate colors, resulting in a vibrant space for customers and employees. Customers are greeted by universal bankers and served either by way of two floating teller pods or three new account and loan offices. The lobby also includes a welcoming waiting area with a coffee bar.
Skyline National Bank was formed in March of 2017, with the merger of Grayson National Bank and the Bank of Floyd. Skyline National Bank has an existing branch office in Christiansburg on Roanoke Street and a Loan Office in Blacksburg and has grown to include 24 locations along the Blue Ridge Parkway
Eclipse Brand Builders provided design services for the project, including architecture, engineering, and interior design.
