Oak Creek — Associated Bank is moving out of Woodman's and opening a branch in Drexel Town Square.

The branch, expected to open in fall 2017, will be located at the main entrance to Drexel Town Square off W. Drexel Avenue at 7940 S. 6th St.

This new branch is replacing the current Associated Bank in-store location at Woodman’s, 8131 S. Howell Ave. According to the release, all current employees will move to the new location.

“We are proud to be part of the exciting Drexel Town Square project, which gives us the opportunity to offer our personal and business customers a convenient location with an enhanced banking experience,” said John Halechko, executive vice president and director of branch banking for Associated Bank. “This new branch demonstrates our commitment and partnership with this vibrant and expanding community.”

The 1,804 square-foot space will include a full-service lobby with teller stations, drive-thru banking, a 24-hour ATM, and fully integrated digital services, according to a news release from Associated Bank.

The branch is part of a WiRED Properties and Phelan Development retail building project in Drexel Town Square, an 85-acre mixed use project being developed by WISPARK. The branch was designed by Rinka Chung Architecture.

“As the master plan architects for Drexel Town Square, we envisioned it as a true mixed-use town center destination,” said Chad Griswold, principal at Rinka Chung Architecture. “With the exciting news of Associated Bank opening on a marquee corner entrance to the town center, residents and visitors will enjoy the convenience of a full-service branch in close proximity to many other amenities.”

Associated Bank operates approximately 40 branch banks in the greater Milwaukee area.
