On December 23, 2013 the Associated Bank branch at the IDS Center at 740 Marquette Ave. in Minneapolis, MN relocated to the Baker Center at 733 Marquette Ave. The new location features full-service banking along with a self-serve, full deposit automation ATM.

The relocation offers customers an enhanced banking experience in a revitalized and spacious layout, reflecting the updated Associated brand style.

“We remain committed to our customers in Downtown Minneapolis and we’re excited about the convenience and visibility that our new Baker Center Skyway Branch offers,” said Robert Larkin, district manager, Associated Bank.

A grand opening and ribbon cutting event took place on February 7, 2014 in collaboration with the Minneapolis Regional Chamber of Commerce.

At the event, the branch presented a $500 donation to Project for Pride in Living, Inc., a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering low-income people to become self-reliant through integrated services.

“We were honored to provide Project for Pride in Living (PPL) with a financial contribution. Their mission closely relates to Associated Bank’s visions and values of community participation and commitment,” said Larkin.

Associated Bank provides financial support through charitable donations across its footprint to help create and sustain healthy communities. Associated prioritizes its donation categories with greatest long-term, preventative impact on social and health conditions. Charitable giving has a strategic focus on economic development, health and human services, education, environment and arts and culture.
