West Community Credit Union
In 2016, West Community Credit Union realized that their branch presence needed significant changes to achieve their future goals. Their project plan called for the purchase of additional property to the west of their lot, the construction a completely new structure with a fresh modern look, and the removal of their existing structure to accommodate for much-needed parking. The result is a complete transformation to the city’s downtown district and a beautiful testament to West Community’s legacy in Brentwood.
The building contains a 5,000 SF branch that includes lease space for tenants in the busy S. Brentwood Boulevard corridor. Features include teller pods, glass walls with sliding doors, a clerestory element to bring natural light into the space, and drive-up tellers. The building architecture emulates the other recent branches of the credit union, extending ‘architecture as branding' to the new location. The entire project was constructed on the site while keeping the existing credit union branch at this location operational.
