Highland Bank Supports Community Redevelopment With New Branch Construction Project

Leading community bank moving to better serve clients and community


ST. MICHAEL, MN, August 11, 2022 – Highland Bank, a locally- and independently-owned community business-focused bank, announced today that its St. Michael branch, located at 701 Central Avenue East, will relocate to a new building. This project integrates with the city of St. Michael’s long-term redevelopment strategy that focuses on revitalizing the downtown area, supporting the growth of its community.

The new 5,000 square-foot facility is just a mile west of the current location, and will provide better access, customer parking, and an interior design that modernizes bank visits for customers. The new office, located at 113 Central Avenue East, is projected to open in spring 2023.

“Highland Bank has been an integral part of the St. Michael community for almost 80 years, so our team is thrilled to stay so close to our current location while upgrading the amenities and technologies for customers,” said Rick Wall, Chief Executive Officer, Highland Bank.

The new building is a part of a larger initiative to invest in the communities and customers Highland Bank serves. The new bank will feature the following elements:

  • Direct access from both sides of County Road 241 adds convenience to bank visits.
  • A redesigned lobby provides an updated banking experience, with an emphasis on making customer transactions efficient and engaging.
  • Wider drive-thru lanes allow customers to transact business, while supporting larger vehicle access.

“Highland Bank will continue to serve its customers at the current branch until the construction process at the new building is complete,” said Wall. “We are excited about this opportunity for our customers in the St. Michael community and we are committed to providing exceptional service during the building move.”

Updates on the new building development will be posted to the Highland Bank website and on its social media channels as they become available. The website address is www.highland.bank.
