Houston-based Central Bank’s newest branch is open for business. The bank’s Lower Heights location opened its doors to the public on January 11 at 2799 Katy Frwy., Ste. 150. It replaces the company’s Midtown branch, which closed on January 8.
Housed in the Lower Heights District multi-use development, the full-service branch offers business and personal banking services, a 24-hour walk-up ATM and drive-thru banking. A modern lobby greets customers upon entry, complete with televisions, a seating area and coffee station. Personal offices with floor-to-ceiling glass doors, as well as a conference room featuring a wall-sized photo of Central Bank’s hometown of Houston, line the branch’s right side. Teller windows and related banking service areas sit in a centralized location, making for simple, streamlined customer visits. With the addition of improved wifi capabilities and mobile device charging stations, the company’s goal is to pair the modern-day amenities customers want with Central Bank’s personalized service.
“This project is the culmination of many hours of work put in by many dedicated team members,” says Robert Mrlik, president and CEO. “No one could have anticipated the obstacles we’ve all faced in recent months, but our team, along with many hardworking contractors and vendors, came together to make it happen.”
Established in 1956 in Houston’s Montrose district, Central Bank operates four full-service branches across the city.
