Enterprise Bank & Trust Co. this month opened a new branch to serve growing commercial interests in Kansas City’s Crossroads Arts District.
The new 4,269-square-foot facility at 1737 Main St. is Enterprise Financial’s first entry into the area immediately south of downtown.
Scott Coup, president of Enterprise Bank’s Kansas City region, said the bank was attracted to “the district’s highly concentrated area of private businesses” and that it looks forward to “connecting with entrepreneurs who live and work in the area.”
The bank is equipped with interactive teller machines, a technology upgrade from standard ATMs, plus what Enterprise terms “interactive learning stations” that allow users to use iPads to explore the banks’ financial services.
The building is designed with an open-office floor plan and high-top work tables for stand-up business interactions. The site includes customer parking spaces and a walk-up ATM.
Planners said they focused on the district’s arts theme by including an exterior sculpture by James Woodfill of Kansas City. The bank also will feature quarterly rotations of art on its interior walls, starting with layered abstract collages made of wood, metal or fabric by Katrina Revenaugh.
The architect for the bank redesign was Clockwork Architecture + Design. The general contractor was Centric Projects. The building is owned by Botwin Commercial Development.
Enterprise Financial operates banking and wealth-management businesses in St. Louis and Phoenix as well as Kansas City.
