ChoiceOne Bank is pleased to announce the continued expansion of their community bank franchise into West Michigan with a full-service branch office on Market Avenue in downtown Grand Rapids.
“We are approaching 120 years of serving the families and businesses in West Michigan, so we are happy to announce our plans to open a full-service office in downtown Grand Rapids at 330 Market Avenue,” said ChoiceOne Bank President and CEO Kelly Potes. “The Bank closed on this property on December 5, and our plans are to renovate the building and open a full-service branch office late summer next year.”

New and existing customers will appreciate the newly remodeled office with its welcoming lobby, drive-up service and a convenient location in Downtown Grand Rapids with plenty of parking. ChoiceOne will provide commercial loans and residential mortgages from this location, as well as traditional banking including treasury services.
“As the local community bank, our ability to get to know our customers and understand their unique needs is what truly sets us apart from our competitors,” said Potes. “We provide the loans, deposits and investment products our customers need for financial success at every stage of their lives and business. We also offer the latest technology to provide the convenience our customers require including online applications for loans and deposits, and the latest in mobile banking so business and retail customers can deposit checks from their smart devices.”
ChoiceOne Bank has engaged Integrated Architecture of Grand Rapids to design the site remodel. “We are excited to partner with an innovative local firm like Integrated Architecture to help us design a modern banking center for our business and retail clients,” said Potes. Initial drawings of a conceptual image for the remodel are included.
The sale was facilitated by NAI Wisinski of West Michigan’s Office and Retail Advisors Doug Taatjes and Hillary Taatjes Woznick. The Market Avenue location is just southwest of Founders Brewing Company.
