Mountain Commerce Bank (MCB), a subsidiary of Mountain Commerce Bancorp, has broken ground of its new Johnson City Financial Center at Johnson City, Tennessee, US.

Construction of the two-storey, full-service banking facility at 109 Memory Gardens Road will commence this month and is expected to open in mid-2024.

MCB President and CEO Bill Edwards said: “The new financial center will create a significant presence in Johnson City for Mountain Commerce Bank, and will provide a warm and inviting space for our clients to interact with their personal bankers.”

The new centre will feature a touch-screen technology station for account access, besides conventional teller stations and night depository.

It will also cater to the financial needs of all MCB clients, offering a range of transactional and deposit products and services, besides personal and business loans, and individual investment services.

Thomas Weems Architect is serving as the project’s architect, Burleson Construction as general contractor, and Interior Concepts as interior designer.

Meanwhile, construction has also begun on MCB’s new combination Interactive Teller Machine (ITM) and drive-thru at the southwest corner of Boones Creek Road and Browns Mill Boulevard, next to the Johnson City Financial Center.

MCB expects the ITM to be operational in Q2 2023.

Edwards said: “An ITM—sometimes referred to as a video remote teller—offers an ATM-like interface but with a video screen that will enable MCB customers to speak directly to a service representative in real time.

“Clients can perform simple cash transactions or engage in deeper, more personalized banking tasks. It will give our customers choice, access and convenience.”.

The bank is also relocating its Johnson City operations centre from Boone Ridge Drive to a new 24,000ft2 building being constructed at 50 Gray Commons Circle, by the end of next month.
