OAK CREEK, Wis. – January 24, 2017 – Associated Bank announced plans for construction of a new full-service branch at 7940 South Sixth Street, Oak Creek. The new branch is part of the Drexel Town Square development, a prominent 85-acre, mixed use community center project being developed by WISPARK.


“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, Associated’s executive vice president and director of branch banking. “This new branch demonstrates our commitment and partnership with this vibrant and expanding community.”  


Located at the main entrance into Drexel Town Square off West Drexel Avenue, the Associated branch is part of a new retail building being developed by WiRED Properties and Phelan Development. The branch is designed by Rinka Chung Architecture, Inc.


“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.”


The design for Associated’s new 1,804 square foot branch includes its unique branded architecture, full-service lobby with teller stations, drive-thru banking, 24-hour ATM, and fully integrated digital services. The new branch will replace Associated’s current in-store location at Woodman’s, 8131 South Howell Avenue, Oak Creek. All employees will move to the new branch, which is anticipated to open early fall 2017.


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