GLOUCESTER – A spokesperson for Langley Federal Credit Union said the company expects to break ground on its new Gloucester location by the end of March.
Construction is expected to take at least nine months, and once it is completed, the current branch on the Middle Peninsula will close.
“We will be relocating the (Hayes) branch to this new location, creating more offices for members to be seen, and creating an improved teller operation and member wait area,” said Kelli Ragland, the vice president of marketing for LFCU.
The new branch, off Zandler Way near the River Bend Apartments in the middle part of the county, will be about 4,800 square feet, nearly 1,500 more than the Hayes location.
“Thanks to the Gloucester community, we have outgrown our current space and require more parking for our members,” Ragland said.
She added the company, which has 21 branches in Hampton Roads, has been looking for a more central locale.
“This new location is more convenient to all of Gloucester and the surrounding counties as well as the majority of commerce in the community,” Ragland said.
The general contractor is Glenn Development, the architect firm is Lemole and Associates, and the civil engineering firm is AES.
