A LANDMARK BANK FOR SKOKIE
CONSTRUCTED ON A OLD GAS STATION PROPERTY
COMPLETED ON BUDGET AND ON TIME
NORTH SHORE COMMUNITY BANK, SKOKIE, IL

This new bank is located in downtown Skokie, Illinois. The property was initially a gas station with a couple of other buildings attached on the parcel. Gas tanks were still on the property so the site had to have them removed and the ground around the tanks was removed.

The project began 18 months before initial ground breaking with a intensive planning process that ended in a successful permit acquisition. The total length of time it took to complete the building was 10 months. Since the bank opened, it has increased its asset base substantially.

Out of a system of 32 banks, it has been described as the best bank building in the system and one of the most successful and smooth running projects the bank has done to date. The building has won national recognition awards for masonry and stone and a number of local awards for architectural design.
