Knoxville, Tenn. – Northshore Town Center will be adding banking to its list of convenient services being offered. The master-planned, mixed-use community being developed by CHM, LLC announces that First Tennessee Bank and ORNL Federal Credit Union will be opening new branch locations in the near future, signaling two more significant additions.
“We are happy to welcome two of the most trusted financial service providers in all of East Tennessee,” said Mike McGuffin, a partner with CHM, LLC. “It’s no secret why they have chosen to expand their presence here…the vision of the center is coming to fruition. We are experiencing continued momentum and increased interest from many restaurants and retailers across the area, not to mention the positive feedback that we’re receiving from our current tenants.”
The new branch of First Tennessee, a part of the First Horizon National Corporation family of companies, will be the community-focused regional bank’s 35th location in Knoxville and surrounding areas. “We have been serving customers in the Northshore area for more than 15 years, and we are excited about the opportunity to continue our service to them in the new location in the Northshore Town Center,” said Pam Fansler, East Region President, First Tennessee Bank.
Meanwhile, ORNL Federal Credit Union, another large financial services provider, will also open a new branch location in Northshore Town Center, marking its 33rd office in the greater Knoxville area.
