Roseburg, Ore.,-based Umpqua Bank is moving its downtown Boise branch from Main Street to the longtime Bank of America building at Front Street and Capitol Boulevard.
The new Umpqua location will open April 24 as the bank’s largest Idaho location among its 10 branches. Umpqua will fill most of the two-story, 18,465-square-foot structure, but 4,500 square feet will be available for lease, said Eve Callahan, senior VP corporate communications.
The neighborhood branch at 280 S. Capitol Blvd will offer retail, commercial and home lending, Callahan said.
Umpqua is moving from its 5,515-square-foot suite in the Veltex Building, 420 W. Main St., that Umpqua inherited in its acquisition of Sterling Savings Bank in September 2013. Umpqua operated at Main Street since April 2014.
“We were interested in finding a location in the center of the community,” Callahan said, referring to the busy downtown location at Front and Capitol.
Community organizations can reserve at no charge the two meeting rooms or the entire bank branch during off-hours, she said.
LCA Architects in Boise is the project architect and The Russell Corporation in Meridian is the general contractor.
Umpqua has branches in Boise, Meridian, Cascade, McCall, Riggins, Grangeville, Kooskia and Lewiston, all acquired in the Sterling acquisition.
The Front/Capitol building had been empty since Washington Federal Bank closed its branch there Aug. 15, 2014. Washington Federal acquired the building in December 2013 as part of the acquisition of 31 Bank of America branches in Idaho.
